MSI EXCLUSIVE OVERCLOCKING TECHNOLOGIES
D.O.T. Express for Dynamic Overclocking
The intelligent heart on MSI's P4N Diamond is the CoreCell chip. The Dynamic Overclocking Technology allows to pre-set the preferred overclocking rate and adjusts all system settings automatically. It also includes some very smart self-checking technology, so it's extremely safe and can be enabled or disabled at any time. The 'dynamic' technology adjusts system values only when needed and by doing so it maintains maximum component lifespan. D.O.T. Express needs a response time of just 1µs to enable the selected performance levels and makes sure maximum system stability is maintained.
To meet the requirements of power-users, the special Cell Menu in the BIOS not only allows to use presets for overclocking but opens up full control for all important motherboard components. Overclockers can take full control over their motherboard and let it shatter barriers they only dare dreaming of.
Sound Blaster Live! 24Bit and Dolby Digital Sound
The P4N Diamond is equipped with 7.1 Channel High-Definition Audio chip from Creative, which has Dolby Digital EX certification. The onboard audio features EAX Dolby advanced HD. This gaming effect standard is supported by some of the hottest games ever! Check out Unreal Tournament 2004 and Call of Duty or http://eax.creative.com for more games
