Unfortunately though, it's still lagging a little behind the Asus-shaped P8Z77-V Pro, an equivalently-specced and priced board. The Asus just about has the edge in both raw CPU performance and memory terms too.

The wheel of time turns and chipsets come to pass, and a year after the Z77 chipset's launch, you can pick up top-spec boards for a fraction of the price you could just a few months back. MSI's Z77 MPower is one such mobo, packing in a rather impressive...

You'll notice that the base performance of the Z77 MPower is quite a bit higher than its peers, and that's because our Core I7-3770K was overclocked to 3.9GHz when running Windows, despite the BIOS showing regular speed of 3.5GHz. Out of the box the...

So yeah, I kind of have mixed feeling about this board, it performs better than its competitor but it cost at least 100$ more than the cheaper Z77A-G41. So if you want the best of the best go for the Mpower but if you want a good board with stable...

At Rs. 17,900, the Z77 MPower is good value for money taking the feature set and performance into consideration. It's a good Rs. 10,000 cheaper than the full-blown models such as the Asus Maximus V Extreme and Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP7. It doesn't come with...

MSI's Z77 MPOWER is a good motherboard, but it doesn't stand out in any massive way. What was ultimately going to make or break the motherboard was going to be the price. Coming in at $199.99 the Z77 MPOWER hits at a really strong price point...

It would be easy to treat the MSI Z77 MPower as a board worthy of comparison against the very cream of the Z77 crop. After all it's part of the much vaunted Big Bang series from MSI, and that alone would make us see how it performs in correlation to...

My overall impressions of this board are quite positive. The black on black with yellow accents are reminiscent of their Lightning series of cards, which I also happened to like. Not too much bling, but more than a plain black canvas. The optimized...
