APS (Active Phase Switching)
Switching, APS, technology is an intelligent design that helps to save
energy on MSI's motherboards. The underlying idea is to switch
the power supply as soon as no electricity is needed, and when the
system needs more resources again, APS will automatically adjust
electricity supply accordingly. APS will automatically detect your
processor's loading at any given time and save energy accordingly. This
is only possible by means of a very advanced power controlling
technology. Other than software-based solutions, APS technology stands
out from MSI's own research. The specially developed IC chip can operate
automatically depending on the demands of the power supply, which is to
reduce the total power usage.
allows using multiple Nvidia graphics cards in a single computer system

Absolutely love this MOBO. The OCGenie is amazing and ramped up my stuff pretty fast and with stability. Have not had a single issue with it and can't foresee me having any either. Great purchase on sale.
I wanted ATX to replace my mATX Maximus V Gene in hopes to CF Arctic Cooler installed 7970s. This mobo ran hotter than mATX I have and Front USB panel would not work on both or one depending on the situation. I wish MSI designed USB header port like ASUS rather than on the side. I RMA for refund yesterday. I had similar experience wrt USB header from MSI GD80 which is in my GF's build and had to use 3.0 to 2.0 adapter.
