P55-GD80, providing maximum performance and support for Intel's Lynnfield Core i7 and Core i5 processors. Additionally, the P55-GD80 integrates three high-power features - OC Genie, SuperPipe, and DrMOS – to provide a one-of-a-kind experience.

OC Genie: Auto OC to boost performance in 1 sec
Generally speaking, the major considerations when customers purchase mainboards are the overclocking ability and performance. However, traditional overclocking methods are too complicated for the general public to master. MSI has released OC Genie technology to make overclocking more accessible; simply by pressing the OC Genie button, the OC Genie automatic overclocking chip detects and sets performance-optimized CPU, RAM, and chipset settings within one second, for easy performance expansion that gets the most out of every part.

SuperPipe: Advanced 8mm Copper Heat-Pipe, An Outstanding Cooling Experience
As the CPUs' thermal design power (TDP) value approaches 150W, efficient cooling technology for mainboards becomes critical as it determines the board's overclocking ability and stability. As such, MSI introduces the SuperPipe cooling design. The 8mm full copper heat-pipe is 60% thicker than traditional pipes, and is also the thickest heat-pipe in the market. The MSI mainboards with SuperPipe run 50℃ cooler than those without, proving that MSI's SuperPipe offers the most effective chipset cooling in the market.

DrMOS: 400% faster phase switching, 90% better power efficiency
To provide customers with superior products. DrMOS technology combines a Driver IC、a Top MOSFET and a Bottom MOSFET into one chip. The shorter distance between every component provides 4 times faster phase switching speed and over 90% better power efficiency. The design not only decreases the working temperature, but also increases the stability of the power supply – especially in high frequencies. For the best stability, DrMOS is essential for professional overclockers and power users.
