After some time testing out this board, I have found that the MAT function\nis an intrusive gimmick, Here is how;\n\nIn the frequency settings with bios revision 1.60 we have 4 options of\n"performance"\n1. slow\n2. fast\n3. Turbo\n4. Ultra Turbo\n\nNow in reply to another post here, even viewing the stability problems\npeople are reporting with higher performance ram such as Corsair and OCZ, we\nnow can understand why these problems exist.\n\n1. MSI needs to add an option in the performance settings of "disabled" The\nreason for this is that MAT is taking the control of the ram settings out of\nour hands and effectively locking us into what MSI thinks the ram timings\nought to be in various performance modes.\n\nIn the slow mode, the ram timings, no matter what the true SPD should read\nis always 2.5. 4.4.7(8) In fast mode a bit more aggressive and so on up to\nultra turbo mode. Basically, we are LOCKED OUT OF SETTING OUR OWN DRAM\nTIMINGS!!\n\nWhen reviewing this one can easily see MSI is literally using a nice little\ngimmick here to sell what they call "memory performance technology" <<\nHORSESHIT!!\n\nThe real truth here is that MSI is locking us into certain ram timing modes,\nand without a "disabled" option to go along with the slow, fast, turbo, and\nultra turbo, we are at the mercy of what this motherboard wishes to set our\nram timings at based upon the MAT function. This MAT is a pure bullshit\ngimmick because without it , we have complete control over what WE WISH TO\nSET THE DRAM TIMINGS AT...\n\nTry it. start with slow mode, set your ram in the dram timings to whatever\nyou wish to set it at. No matter what you set the ram at, it will run at the\nMAT'S predetermined dram timings. I consider this completely intrusive and I\nam very upset at MSI for pulling a so called fast one here..\n\nMSI, I am on to your bullshit "MAT technology" My "ass" "technology" its\nmore suited to be called "scamology"\n\nIt is pure pre spec driven and user unfriendly intrusive krap.. I am waiting\nfor someone to prove me wrong. I will be happy to provide screen shots,\nbenchmarks, whatever. Prove me wrong!!\n\nAs for MSI, AD A DISABLE OPTION IN THE "PERFORMANCE" SETTING UNDER THE\nFREQUENCY CONTROL PAGE.\n\n2, GIVE US BACK COMPLETE CONTROL OF WHAT WE WANT TO SET OUR DRAM TIMINGS AT,\nNOT WHAT YOU THINK WE SHOULD HAVE THE TIMINGS SET AT!!\n\nThat means if I am running MAT "disabled" and I set my dram to 18.104.22.168 (8)\nWE WANT TO SEE THAT IN CPU-Z THAT IN FACT THE DRAM IS RUNNING AT WHAT WE\nWANT IT TOO, NOT WHAT YOUR BS MAT THINKS IT OUGHT TO RUN AT..\n\nThis is total BS, There are some people who do not know a damned thing about\ncomputers and you are conning them. I will start to make loud noises on this\nissue until you fix this "scamology" starting with all the tech sites on the\nweb (half of them are either paid off, or plain old stupid idiots)\n\nAm I wrong MSI? Prove it!! Until then, I will use my spare time to expose\nyour bs MAT and make my case to every tech site out there until you either\nfix this or your biz suffers from this..\n\nHave a nice day@@!!!
