MSi's X58 Pro-E is a high-end motherboard. It shares many features with the X58-M, another motherboard manufactured by MSi. Certain features, such as functioning as a charger for the iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad, all solid capacitors (which prolong the life of the motherboard), and the Easy OC switch (gives higher level CPU performance) are common amongst both motherboards. Despite sharing many features, the X58 Pro-E has an advantage over the X58-M, as it contains many more features. These features include DrMOS technology, which conserves power during operation. It also lowers the temperature of the motherboard, and can provide a high quality power transfer to safely overclock a CPU. It also features an all shielded choke (the component that regulates power current). By shielding the choke, power core loss is reduced, and also stores energy longer at a higher frequency, making it more efficient.
