The MSi 770-G45 is a motherboard capable of supporting the 64bit AMD Phenom II processor. Becuase of the limitations of the chipset, it does not support Windows 98 or ME editions. It encompasses a HyperTransport 3.0 supporting speed up to 5200MT/s. It feautes the AMD 770 and SB710 chipsets. It can support 4 unbuffered DIMM of 1.5 volt DDR3 DRAM, with a max memory of 16GB. This motherboard features the Unlock CPU Core, which allows users to quickly unlock hidden CPU core. There is an M-Flash feature, so if the BIOS crashes, it can boot from the USB. It also features AMD's Cool&Quiet technology, which brings air over the hot desktop platform.
