MSI H81M PRO-VD Micro ATX Motherboard
Military Class 4 is the next step in high quality components. The Dark Choke and Solid CAP will make sure that your PC runs more stable under extreme gaming conditions.
Dark Choke uses the special core design and allows the Dark Choke to run at a lower temperature with higher capacity and better power efficiency and stability.
With their aluminum core design and Japanese made quality, Solid CAPs are made for high-end design motherboard. Not only do Solid CAPs could provide lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR), but also work firmly for over-10-year.
Military Class Essentials
The core of Military Class 4 is based on the essentials which increase your stability in the worst conditions. The humidity protection and high temperature protection ensure your system surviving each environment, no matter how harsh. The new structure of the PCB limits EMI radiation. On top of that all the connectors have ESD protection in order to prevent short circuit.
The latest Gen 4 Fabric PCB helps to against moisture cause by some humid conditions and environments.
The optimized EMI-proof design helps to keep users safe when during a long-time computer operation.
Anti-ESD ICs and fuses onboard helps to totally protect your motherboard from electrostatic damage.
HIGH Temperature Protection
Certificated Military Class 4 components help to work stable under some extreme conditions.
Isolated Audio PCB
With traditional onboard audio the signal is distorted by electromagnetic signals from the rest of the PCB. Acting like a dedicated soundcard by physically isolating the audio circuitry which is separated by a isolating path. Less interference gives you a more clear audio signal.
High Quality Audio Capacitors
With the use of professional Nichicon Japanese capacitors, specially designed for audio purposes, H81M PRO-VD delivers high fidelity crystal clear sound with exceptional acoustics and realism.
