The MSI Overclocking Center allows you to control the clock speed of every part of your MSI motherboard. Not only can you control how they run normally, but also you can control how everything on your motherboard runs based on the application your computer is running. With this technology, you can increase your computer's power while running the latest game or allow it to use much less power when sitting idle. Now, the control over your computer and how it responds is in your hands.
