MSI P67A-C43 (B3) Intel Smart Connect Technology Driver

Overview Intel® Smart Connect Technology is designed to update programs by periodically waking your computer from sleep/standby mode for a short g: P67A- ‎C43 ‎(B3). With a simple BIOS update, next-gen Intel 22nm processors can also be fully support Intel® Smart Connect Technology, Intel® Rapid Start Technology. We get to review another P67 motherboard this time the MSI model, will it Today we'll be looking at a mid range motherboard solution for Intel 2xxx Allow me to introduce to you a wondrous little board that goes by the name of P67A-C This technology automatically enables or disables CPU power.

MSI P67A-C43 (B3) Intel Smart Connect Technology Driver

The longer the interval, the less the battery consumption. Even though you select a minute update frequency, your computer can sleep longer between updates to save battery if presentor keep the system cool.

This is meant to save battery power. The system will now wake up only at dawn end of extended hours. This is necessary to convert the USB 3. I am sure MSI is saving money by making the dongle rather than changing the header on the board.


There are 3 sets of internal wiring, speaker and USB connectors. The manual is well written and illustrated though at times it might get a little confusing as it is aimed at more than one product.

Again MSI has bundled one high end motherboard accessory with this boar —the handy internal connectors. Other than that the accessory list is very typical of a board of this class. Tour of the Motherboard The motherboard is based on a black PCB with a mix of black and blue components.

This is something that is seen on almost every x67 board I have used. There are 8 USB 2. I would not count these are great omissions because of the presence of USB 3. It is possible to get E-SATA connectivity by using a chassis which supports it, if it is really a requirement. Socket Area The socket manufactured by Lottes on this board is what you would expect form a P67 based board. The LGA socket is surrounded by power regulation circuitry which is all bare.

There is enough clearance around the socket area for the largest of heat-sinks. However the first memory slot might not be able to take a memory stick with an extra tall heat sink if an extra large heat-sink fan is used.

They visually display the number of active phases providing power to the CPU. The fewer the phases active, the greater the energy conservation.

For any over-clocking it is recommended that all phases be always kept active Platform Controller Hub The platform controller hub is located in front of the two PCI-e 1x slots, next to the PCI-e x16 slot. It is covered by a diminutive heatsink. The heat sink is flat and thus MSI P67A-C43 (B3) Intel Smart Connect Technology not interfere with double slot video card plugged into the x16 slot.

The heatsink seems almost decorative in appearance. Each can accept up to 4GB memory for a maximum total of 32GB system memory. The board works with MHz as dictated by the Sandy-bridge processor specification, but will also accept memory of up to MHz.

The memory slots are color coded to indicate dual channel setup. Expansion Slots There are 7 expansion slots in total. A standard x16 PCI-e slot for discrete graphics.

The x16 slot is PCI-e 2. The controller lanes for the x16 slot come from within the processor core itself, while the rest are located in the PCH platform controller hub.

I like the layout of the slots on the motherboard. There is an x1 slot to the right of the x16 slot which allows for some room between the processor area and the x16 slot. Even if a dual slot video card is used, it will still leave two viable x1 slots. The SATA ports MSI P67A-C43 (B3) Intel Smart Connect Technology front of the x16 slot is right angled and thus will still be usable if a long video card is used.

The right-angled ports are a welcome sight.

All storage connectivity is based on the abilities of the PCH. The lower working temperature will enhance motherboard stability.


This not only makes bursting capacitors a non-issue but also ensures a dramatically extended lifetime and ultra-low ESR. Whether users want to watch a high bit-rate HD movie or MSI P67A-C43 (B3) Intel Smart Connect Technology online gaming, both can be enjoyed with image performance that is smoother and lag-free! The underlying idea is to switch off 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.
