Overclocking
When dealing with overclocking, MSI is a relative new comer, with the biggest development happening in the past few years, and that’s why we want to take a minute to explain the so called 1-second overclocking feature called OC Genie.

In short, the OC Genie feature transforms a relatively simple feature into a fully automatic function, and the result is surprisingly good.

OC Genie is enabled by pressing the button on the motherboard before turning on the computer – and that’s all you need to do. Unless a processor speed of over 4 GHz isn’t enough.

As shown in the picture below, OC Genie detects what RAM and processor is installed, and determines an overclock. In our case, a Core i5-661 running stock at 3.33 GHz was automatically overclocked to 4.2 GHz – running stable and with no trouble.



By simply lowering the multiplier and increasing what’s supposed to be the bus speed in the BIOS, the motherboard managed a base block frequency of 197 MHz It is possible to reach 200+ MHz on the H55M-ED55, all it takes is some technical flair and manual settings in the BIOS or OC Genie software. 



Conclusion

It might seem like a case of David against Goliath, but despite its size, the H55M-ED55 bites back.

Just like the Asus P7H55D-M EVO, which is a straight up competitor, the MSI motherboard design and features is well thought trough. The new “2. Generation” 1-second overclocking feature works very well. 

Actually, the only concern on our mind is the 4+1 phase design, and whether it is enough to overclock a more powerful processor, like a Core i7-800 series. Also, it’s a shame that MSI didn’t chose USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gbps, as it would make the motherboard prepared for future products.

With that said, this motherboard packs a lot of features, and unlike Asus, it doesn’t suffer from it. In short: Don’t judge and under estimate this motherboard by its size, as its better and faster in a lot of ways.

Summing up, the test results say it all: The MSI H55M-ED55 performs just as well as an expensive EVO motherboard from Asus, and it’s even 200 DKR cheaper.

Do yourself a favor, and consider the MSI H55-ED55 if you’re thinking about upgrading.
