The H81M ECO Desktop Motherboard from MSI supports 4th Generation Intel Core processors, Intel H81 Express chipset for Intel Pentium, and Celeron processors in LGA1150 socket. It supports DDR3-1600/1333/ 1066 MHz memory, USB 3.0, and SATA 6 Gb/s. H81M ECO is TUV certified and offers ECO Tech Design for optimizing power, ECO Center Pro for user-friendly operations and ECO Performance for stable and green 24/7 performance. The motherboard offers a 4K high definition visual experience. It features Click BIOS 4 that fine-tunes your system, Fast Boot helps to quickly boot up and enter the OS in a few seconds, and M-Flash updates and backs up the BIOS.
The motherboard supports triple-display function in combination of DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI outputs. It also features Military Class 4 components, which provide stability and quality.
TUV recognizes MSI's ECO design as more power efficient and highlights an increased life expectancy for this motherboard for 25 years.
Click BIOS 4
The MSI Click BIOS 4 is a UEFI BIOS with optimizations for Windows 8. It also reacts faster, runs smoother, and has suitable mouse support.
With an HDMI port, you can enjoy HD video playback. It supports innovative signal outputs to provide an enhanced visual experience.
Intel Gigabit LAN
The MSI 9 series motherboards come equipped with the optimal quality network solution from Intel which is Optimized for multimedia and gaming to deliver a stable and good network connection.
ECO TECH Design
MSI uses unique techniques in hardware and software design for ECO Series to use less power than a light bulb and save up to 40%.
ECO Center Pro
ECO mode is the default mode to save energy. It enables all of the motherboard functions and only turns off all LEDs and PCI slots.
This mode is for multimedia solutions to decode/encode audio and video at full performance. Lounge mode lowers fan speed for a mode quiet environment and disables LEDs and LAN.
It has a mode for personal cloud service or servers for small business. Server mode lowers CPU power consumption, fan speed, turns LEDs, audio, and video functionality off.
Efficiency at your control by pressing the ECO button starts saving power immediately. User-friendly with a button in hardware, BIOS, and software design for more convenience.
The circuit protection for overclocking motherboards is composed of carefully selected materials, multiple PCB layers, and shielding.
With MSI ECO Center you can physically cut the power to unused chips to save up to 40% power usage.
10% reduction in moisture absorption helps prevent Conductive Anodic Filament. Untreated PCB's can have ten times higher failure rate.
High Temperature Protection
The key components used in MSI motherboards are all military-testing passed, ensuring stable operation in harsh environment.
Each I/O port is protected against the hazards of Electro Static Discharge.
The motherboard complies with stringent American FCC regulations and reduces the impact of Electromagnetic Interference.
Military Class 4
Dark Choke uses the special core design and allows it to run at a lower temperature with higher capacity and optimal power efficiency and stability.
Solid CAPs provide an aluminum core design and staple in high-end mainboards. They offer lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR), and last for over 10 years.
