MSI X79 mainboards with Military Class III components have unanimously proven to be the fastest X79 based mainboards in the world. American overclocker Turn&Burn succesfully overclocked an Intel Core i7 3930K processor to a stunning record of 5.83 GigaHertz on a MSI X79A-GD65 (8D). The 182% overclocking value is the highest for Intel's "Sandy Bridge-E" processors. Meanwhile renowned Taiwanese overclocker Toppc used a MSI Big Bang-XPower II and Intel Core i7 3960X Processor to set a new record high baseclock 170.33 MHz. These records were made possible through MSI's exclusive use of Military Class III components on the MSI X79 Series mainboards.
