If the MSI X99S XPower AC motherboard is a little too expensive and feature packed for your liking then MSI will also be offering another OC series board that is a few notches down. THE X99S MPower motherboard is an ATX X99 based motherboard with a 12 phase digital power PWM design. High quality audio using MSI’s Audio Boost components and the Realtek ALC1150 codec is present as well as abundant storage connectivity: 8 SATA III ports, one SATA Express port and an M.2 port. Being an OC series board there a variety of switches to play around with such as base clock switches, an OC Engine button and a diagnostic LED for troubleshooting.
WCCFTech claim a price of under $400 for the board which uses MSI’s yellow and black colour scheme. The fairly modest range of connectivity and features (by the standard of MSI’s other X99 boards) leaves some scope for them to release an MPower Max model in the future, although MSI would have to be careful to differentiate that from the feature packed X99S XPower AC.
