The MSI E350IA-E45 is equipped with only Japanese-made solid capacitors. Solid capacitors have a rated lifespan of more than ten years under high load, generate less heat and are more efficient compared to typical capacitors.

 

USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps onboard

To meet the demand for faster data storage, the E350IA-E45 is equipped with both USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps ports. External storage devices will no longer be bottlenecked by the previous-generation USB 2.0, and are now able to operate at full speed. SATA 6Gbps-capable internal solid state drives such as the Crucial RealSSD C300 and the recently-released C400 will also be able to reach their maximum rated speeds.

 

Multimedia connectivity

With HDMI support, one can connect a TV or monitor directly to the E350IA-E45 and enjoy accelerated Full HD video and 7.1-channel audio. The MSI board also features optical and coaxial outputs for hooking up to (higher-end) audio systems.
