Dragon Center Review

Sven Sorensen
Dedicated tool from MSI for managing PC settings including system tuning, overclocking, LED lighting and system information and diagnostics
A review of Dragon Center by Sven Sørensen

MSI Dragon Center is the official control panel that comes with modern MSI gaming notebook.

The control panel includes several useful features including System Monitor, LED Wizard, System Tuner, Mobile Center and Tool & Help.

Probably the most used feature for gamers and other owners of MSI systems is the system tuner. With this feature, you can access the core system hardware diagnostics like GPU, CPU, Memory and disk space usage. In addition, you can also use it to overclock your CPU and GPU either manually, or by selecting of the included presets; Turbo, Sport, Comfort or ECO.

The system tuner can also be used to adjust fan speed, quickly change audio settings, toggle virtual reality (VR) or boost USB ports.

Moving on, MSI Dragon Center also provides access to the keyboard backlight LEDs; from here, you can instantly change the color settings, configure presets or switch between LED modes.

Other useful things can also be accessed from Dragon Center like documentation, online help, backup and recovery, battery calibration and more.

Finally, the App Portal section of MSI Gaming Center provides quick links to installed system software like the SCM Control Panel, SteelSeries Engine III, MSI True Color, Nahimic 2, XSplit Gamecaster and NVIDIA's GeForce Experience.

All in all, MSI's Gaming Center provides quick access to basic, proprietary system tools and a bit more.
