Onboard RAID: The MSI H97I AC supports Intel Rapid Storage Technology which provides the following RAID levels via the Intel H97 Express Chipset: RAID 0 - data striping; RAID 1 - data mirroring; RAID 0+1 (or RAID 10) - data striping and mirroring; RAID 5 - distributed parity.

Suitable Processors: The MSI H97I AC board supports 4th Gen (Haswell) and future 5th Gen (Broadwell) processors. The MSI H97I AC is *not* provided with a processor. Suitable processors are available here or in the 'you may also require' section to the left.

Suitable Cases: All our Mini-ITX chassis with at least a 120W power supply, and an appropriate low profile heatsink if necessary. If using a larger than 65W TDP processor, a larger power supply than 120W may be required. Some suitable cases that will work with the GA-Z87N-WiFi with a standard Intel Socket 1150 heatsink: The Venus 669, Compucase 8K01, Compucase 8K07, Silverstone SG05, Jou Jue NU-528i 220W and Jou Jue NU-568i 220W.

1U Case compatibility: To use this board in a 1U case please use the Dynatron K2 1U Side blower heatsink and a 35W or 65W TDP CPU.

Typical M350 configuration: To use this board in the M350, we recommend the 150W AC Adapter and picoPSU-150-XT or picoPSU-160-XT together with a 65W TDP CPU and Akasa 7106HP or K25 heatsink or 35W TDP CPU and supplied heatsink, plus 1 or 2 sticks of DDR3 RAM and a 2.5in HDD/SSD (add an M350 HDD tray to use 2x HDD/SSDs).

Multiple Screens: This board supports 2 independent screens. 3 outputs is possible if a DVI-I to VGA adapter is used for the 3rd output (i.e. 2x digital HDMI and 1x analogue VGA). 3x digital outputs is not possible due to chipset limitations.

Downloads: BIOS, Documentation and Drivers.

Package Contents: 2x SATA cables, 1x I/O back plate, 1x Driver and Software DVD, 2x WiFi Antenna.

Suitable Memory: The MSI H97I AC uses 1066/1333/1600MHz DDR3 memory. This is not compatible with DDR/DDR2 memory. Fully tested DDR3 DIMMs are available here or in the 'you may also require' section to the left.
