Introduction of MSI Z77A-GD80 motherboard with chipset Intel Z77 Express

The most favourable method of attracting customers is offering products with the best functionality, overclocking potential and the retail price. This approach was used in the design of the motherboard MSI Z77A-GD80, designed to work with processors Intel LGA1155. The apparent competitive advantage of the new interface is the support of the newest Thunderbolt.

MSI Z77A-GD80 comes in a large cardboard box on the front side of which, in addition to the model name and logos of many compatible technologies, there is information about the support of the latest high-speed standard Thunderbolt. Logo Military Class III indicates using the design of the motherboard of electronic components with a high level of reliability.

The back of the pack contains detailed information about original features of MSI Z77A-GD80, such as automatic overclocking OC Genie II, the OSD firmware Click BIOS II and Support Multi BIOS II, which allows switching between the primary and backup chips with the control microcode.

Element base MSI Z77A-GD80 corresponds to the internal standard Military Class III. In recent years, many vendors in the production of high quality computer components used electronic components and do not hesitate to present it as a competitive advantage. In MSI's have addressed this issue more seriously, certifying the elemental base for U.S. military standard MIL-STD 810, which regulates the level of protection of equipment from various external influences.

MSI Z77A-GD80 is made in the standard for the older models form factor ATX, its dimensions are 305h244 mm. The board allows you to exploit any Intel processors in the performance of LGA1155, using the most advanced system logic — Intel Z77 Express, which provides full compatibility with the Ivy Bridge.

In general, the set of ports allows for most of the opportunities to expand the system board. However, the rear panel is not displayed any of the IEEE 1394 port, so that users use FireWire devices may have to acquire the relevant bar on the rear panel.

The motherboard has a powerful and efficient power subsystem, which is used in the circuits of electronic components Military Class III. As an integral load-bearing elements are used assembly DrMOS II, which have better fuel economy and lower levels of electromagnetic interference as compared to first generation products. Besides, force elements have automatic protection against overheating, which increases their service life and protects against breakage.

The controller supports the accuracy of precision voltage control of the operating frequency of the power components, automatically switching the number of active phases, depending on load and voltage drop compensation Vdroop. Cooling System of MSI Z77A-GD80 presented radiators on the power components of the voltage converter and the system logic. There are design outlet heat of the CPU VRM, a heat pipe, and the RSN content with the simplest flat radiator. Thus, the design of MSI Z77A-GD80 is consistent with the requirements that apply to high-end products.

Most of the parameters of the CPU concerning the work of energy saving technologies and operation of Intel Turbo Boost, are in the sub-CPU Features. Management and control of energy-saving technologies stresses in the setup menu Z77A-GD80 in a separate section of the ECO.

MSI Z77A-GD80 is the top range of the company's product line of motherboards for processors Intel LGA1155. In this regard, the new model is very seriously contenders. Fortunately, for the full character of today's competition test has all the necessary resources: a qualitative element base, advanced design and functional firmware. All these factors provide a Z77A-GD80 good margin of safety and good performance. Of course, there were some comments that relate to the work of energy saving technologies in the mode of dispersal, and not the best potential for increasing the frequency of the RAM.
