This feature allows you to remotely wake your system up using the appropriate application from your remote device, even across subnets. Contact your system manufacturer for verification of your system requirements for support for Remote Wake. For this reason, the technology must be included in the computer system at the time MSI P67A-C43 (B3) Intel Smart Connect Technology manufacture. If your computer system included Intel Smart Connect Technology, but the feature is not available, make sure that the capability is enabled in your system BIOS.

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 will 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 in 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.

Back of the Board The back of the board features the socket back plate. There are no obtrusive traces or components that might hinder the placement of an aftermarket HSF back plate.

Connectors There are 5 fan connectors highlighted in redone for the processor fan 4pin PWM controlled MSI P67A-C43 (B3) Intel Smart Connect Technology four 3pin connectors located on the board. Two of the system fan connectors are located at the left front edge. They are strategically located to be as close as possible to front intake fans. One system fan connector is located right next to the CPU fan connector which is ideally located for a top mounted fan. Finally the rear exhaust fan has its connector located near the back of the board.

Design Impressions I really cannot fault the design lay out of the board. MSI has used high end quality military grade components on the board.

Right angled SATA ports are a welcome addition to a board at this price point. The only thing that MSI could have done is provide some form of passive cooling for power regulation circuitry like it does on the —C45 variant of the board. It is easy to use, though not quite as polished as the Asus solution. The main EFI screen has only 5 icons for each of the 5 main functions.
