rhosigma it sounds like you are just caught up in marketing lingo lol. Im pretty sure gigabyte doesnt give a rats ass to go to the military (what military? who made this designation? The military of taiwan? Oooo that means something to me, they don't even have nuclear weapons bro) and get some kind of stamp.
Thanks for trashing my statement without doing any research at all. Not even wikipedia. Not even bothering to copy and paste it into google.
It's a United States Military Standard, not Taiwan.
And these standards look pretty thorough to me, through a quick glance.
"These components have all passed through rigorous MIL-STD-810G testing performed by third-party
laboratories, including extreme temperature, humidity, pressure, shock, and dropping etc. totaling 7 tests,"
I do understand that it also says that many companies can use this term to their advantage. However, just pointing out how you could have done some research instead of trashing me so quickly.
BTW ASrock, Gigabyte, Asus, Msi, Biostar, they are all companies based in Taiwan. I don't think it's right for you trash Taiwan like that.
Also, Taiwan has the capability to produce mass weapons of destruction. There's a reason they don't though. China states that they will declare attack on Taiwan if Taiwan is found to posses nuclear weapons. Not that great of an incentive, eh?
Chill out dude, it was a joke. It's been established that 'military standard' is marketing goobledygook. How can you be so gullible lol. You realize that means nothing, right? They 'rigorous testing' is cherrypicked on components, because I can tell you for damn sure there's either a)no way in hell that nikos mosfets are 'military tested' or b)military testing doesn't mean ****. Overclocking is a lot harsher on a VRM than running stock in the desert, you realize that right? There's a difference in a high end piece of equipment that'll break if you so much as look at it but can handle extreme voltage and temp fluctuations, and a piece of equipment that'll survive being submerged in water or sand.
They are probably, if anything, testing the chokes they use. The chokes are fine. The chokes on most boards are never a problem. The problem on VRMs is the mosfets and driver mosfets. In which case MSi uses crap, they have a history of it.
Really dude, you are taking it way too far. It's marketing bs. If msi is military tested, then gigabyte/asus and biostar/evga/asrock are seal team 6 tested. It doesn't mean anything. The military doesn't buy MSi boards or 3570ks. They buy ******* dells dude, piece of craps with shock absorbant padding, sealed watertight, less moving parts, etc. Big difference.
If you really want to entertain this marketing BS and assume it's true - you are comparing the classifications of a Ferrari and a Humvee. Ferrari will break apart in fallujah, while a humvee would just die if it somehow made it to 250mph, which it can't do.
Seriously. Look at msi boards. Nikos mosfets. You gotta be blind to buy this military class crap. Either military class means nothing or they aren't testing the components that need to be testing. Just learn something about mosfets and look at the board, its blatantly obvious.
and i didnt' trash taiwan, it's a joke. if you took 2 seconds to read it instead of skimming it and jumping to get pissy about something, you'd realize how absurd the comment is.
