MSI has launched its latest motherboard, the Big Bang-XPower II, offering plenty of overclocking goodness for the Intel X79 chipset.

 
The company claims that this board is its most powerful to date, building on the record achievements of the original Big Bang-XPower, supporting Intel's latest second generation i7 processors.
 
It is built with Military Class III components, such as DrMOS II, Super Ferrite Choke, Hi-c CAP and Solid CAP, allowing heavy duty use with an extended lifetime. An enhanced thermal design also ensures that no active cooling is required.

Overclocking is the name of the game for this motherboard, with the ability to run 4-way SLI or CrossFire via four PCI Express Gen3 slots. Renowned overclocker Jon “Elmor” Sandström helped MSI bump up the overclocking abilities of the Big Bang-XPower II.
 
The board includes 8 DIMM slots, with support for up 128GB of RAM, significantly more than most people will ever need or use, but helping to make the motherboard that little bit more future-proof.
 
Other features include Sound Blaster X-Fi MB2 7.1 high-definition audio, six USB 3.0 slots, 10 USB 2.0 slots, two Intel SATA 6Gb/s and four 3Gb/s slots with RAID support, two ASMedia SATA 6GB/s slots, a multi-BIOS UEFI interface, and several buttons for easy overclocking and resetting.
