Because very few people are needing Thunderbolt and the Mpower is 100% focused on Overclocking.

Unless using an exotic CPU and VRM/MOSFET cooling solution, I have my doubts it is going to give you any better OC than a conventional mid to upper end series mainboard will. The multi of two 3770k's I have top out way below the published Intel 63X multi and need a bunch of voltage. 51X on one and 52X on the other was it. Maybe the Ivy II CPU's will OC better. Sure, we see some good results written up, but the truth be known, most are cherry picked components or ES or just plain lucky with the draw.

I watched the one video on one of the MSI sites and the difference is that each of these boards is tested at a 4,5GHz OC for 24 hours before being shipped. Thus the chance of a DOA is minimised.
Normal boards are just packed and shipped with spot checks here and there.
So the advantage is, you get a tested board at a reasonable OC.

I'll be buying one next week, when they come into stock in England, UK.

They have even got matching memory by AVEXIR, with the same colour scheme + Blue LED's as the MSI Mpower and Lightning series graphics card range for more matching bling!

Read here  >> http://www.techhum.com/avexir-to-offer-msi-z77-mpower-ddr3-2133mhz-8gb-memory/
www.techhum.com said:
Avexir will release its  MSI Z77 MPower DDR3 @ 2133 MHz RAM modules which, as the name suggests, are designed to be hosted on MSI Z77 MPOWER motherboard, providing maximum compatibility and optimization with the most extreme motherboard from the Taiwanese company for Z77 chipset.



The AVD3U21330904G-2CM memory is made of two modules @ 2133 MHz 4 GB capacity. Both create a Dual Channel configuration with 9-11-10-27 latencies working under a voltage of 1.65V and compatible with Intel XMP profile 1.3 (Extreme Memory Profiles).
The modules are accompanied by a eight layer copper sink with a matching design base plate black with yellow lines. Its release date and price are unknown at the moment.
Check these videos out!!

You only need a GTX680 Lightning now and you have the Black&Yellow beast. Didn't know about the Avexir sticks, a cool idea. (BTW: Also fixed the link you provided)

Before this press announcement I had never even seen or heard of this memory manufacturer. At least locally, there is absolutely no such brand available.
I for one wouldn't buy memory for the looks. Looks only matter if the equipment is on a test bench or in a see-thru case. But hey, bling is more important to some than others.  :undecided:
Time will tell if they are up to the task at standard 1,5V  :noidea:

I agree, this company was started in 2006 and really just got into the memory business. I think I'll stick with Corsair

Avexir is well available in Europe and offers a wide range from low-end to high-end oc sticks. As far as these MPower sticks are concerned look is the main point for buying with the Mpower board but look was a big point for MSI too when starting the black/yellow color scheme for MPower and Lightning so won't hurt to complete the picture. Sure the sticks will do the timings/speeds they are advertised for.

I'll stick with Corsair and maybe even consider the latest G.Skill, as long as they are 1,5V as per the JEDEC standard, and Corsair does that pretty well right now up to 2133.
Looking on their site, every module above 1600 requires 1,65V. I'll watch the user feedback. Maybe they are the new kid on the block in the making.  ;)
