STAY COOL FOR ULTIMATE GAMING PERFORMANCE

Cooling your PC is essential for reliable performance. MSI motherboards feature excellent power design with solid and heavy heatsink. We've made sure to include enough fan headers with full control to allow you to cool your system any way you want.


THERMAL SOLUTION FOR MORE CORES AND HIGHER PERFORMANCE

With more cores’ processors, thermal and power design is more important to make sure the temperature keeps lower. MSI extended PWM heatsink and enhanced circuit design ensures even high-end CPU to run in full speed with MSI motherboards.


CORE BOOST

Core Boost is the latest development in the MSI motherboard CPU power transmission system. The high-quality power delivery component area retained on the optimized circuit design produces an efficient power system that delivers accurate current to the CPU.


Double Power Connectors

8+4 pin connectors deliver adequate power even for an overclocked multi-core CPU.

STORAGE BOOST YOUR STORAGE PERFORMANCE

This great little tool is very simple to use and automatically detects your storage devices connected to the system. When enabled, Storage Boost optimizes your SSDs to keep your system fast and maximize storage performance, saving you a lot of time when loading or transferring data.


EASY RAID SETUP WITH M.2 GENIE

Looking to go all out in terms of raw data speed and put multiple SSDs in RAID 0? Setting this up can prove to be quite the challenge. That's why we created M.2 Genie, a brilliant feature to make setting up RAID 0 for M.2 and U.2 much easier and less time consuming.


AMD STOREMI

All MSI X470 & B450 motherboards are shipped with StoreMI, the new AMD SSD technology to improve storage performance. This tool helps create a virtual SSD by blending capacity storage, treats flash as primary storage and optimizes data access with monitoring continuously. All these functions can enhance read/write speed for active data and provide fast boot times and application startup.


DIGITAL POWER DESIGN

A fully digital power design allows for faster and undistorted current delivery to the CPU at pin-point precision. Creating the perfect conditions for CPU overclocking.

SOUND THAT PULLS YOU INTO THE GAME

Deliver the highest sound quality through the use of premium quality audio components and get the most immersive sound experience when gaming. MSI motherboards let you enjoy breathtaking, gaming-changing sound.


ISOLATED AUDIO DESIGN

Like a dedicated sound card, audio components and circuits have been laid on a reserved motherboard section and electrically isolated.


SEPARATED AUDIO LAYERS FOR CLEAN LEFT & RIGHT CHANNELS

Audio circuits laid on separate layers in the PCB ensure equally pristine sounding audio for both left and right audio channels.


DE-POP PROTECTION

A de-pop filter eliminates loud popping noises that occur when devices are plugged/unplugged or when the PC is turned on/off.

MEMORY COMPATIBILITY & TESTING

Get stability out of MSI’s extensive and aggressive memory testing and optimization. Working alongside partnered brands like Corsair, Crucial, Kingston, G.SKILL, and many more, MSI has worked hard to get the most out as many memory configurations as possible.


FOR HIGHER MEMORY SPEED : DDR4 BOOST 2

Besides optimized PCB design, MSI OC lab has also co-worked with world-known memory brands, pushing memory speed to a peak. MSI X570 motherboards are going to free the these selected memories’ performance with stability.


A HUGE STEP OF DDR PERFORMANCE

MSI OC LAB does not merely work hard on extreme overclocking. With AMD 3rd Gen Ryzen processors, X470 and B450 motherboards have great improvement on performance and memory support.


MORE STABILITY WITH AMD TURBO USB 3.2 GEN2

Featuring the AMD TURBO USB 3.2 GEN2, MSI motherboards offer never before seen USB speeds with more stability when connecting USB devices.

FULLY CONTROLLABLE FAN HEADERS

MSI motherboards let you manage speeds and temperatures for all your system and CPU fans, giving you full control to set up a cool & silent system. The fan headers are conveniently placed with the most popular CPU coolers in mind.


AUTODETECT DC OR PWM MODE WITH HYSTERESIS

MSI fan headers automatically detect fans running in DC or PWM mode for optimal tuning of fan speeds and silence. Hysteresis also makes your fans spin up fluently to make sure your system stays silent, no matter what.


TROUBLESHOOTING FRIENDLY DESIGN

MSI motherboards been designed to make the system assembly process as convenient as possible. An array of system tuning features and troubleshooting tools are available to ease installation and setup.


KEEP OUT ZONE

Circuits have been routed away from the case standoff keep out zones to minimize the damage impacts of misplaced mounting pieces.


EZ DEBUG LED

Run into trouble? Onboard LEDs for key components indicate the source of the problem so you know exactly where to look to get up and running again.


XL CLIP

An enlarged PCI-E clip makes it easier to remove and swap your PCI devices.


1-SECOND OVERCLOCKING!

Need more power from your CPU and memory to get more FPS? MSI Game Boost enables one-second overclocking, giving you the performance boost you need. Simply turn the dial or use the Gaming App and your PC gets another adrenaline shot!


PERFORMANCE ENHANCING APPS

Complete your high performance experience with an array of performance enhancing software from MSI. From a loaded yet easy to use BIOS to potent live system tools, get the most out of your motherboard at any moment.


LOAD-LINE CALIBRATION

What you set, is what you get. LLC makes sure your CPU voltage remains 100% stable under any load. This greatly improves stability when demanding more CPU performance.


OVERVOLTAGE PROTECTION

Prevents potential short-circuit damage to the CPU and other critical components.


MYSTIC LIGHT

Illuminate with MSI Mystic Light and bring the motherboard RGB lighting to life. Choose from millions of colors and sync across compatible devices.


ULTIMATE MOTHERBOARD PROTECTION

Double ESD protection doubles up the grounding layer around the mounting holes, preventing static discharge surges from damaging the motherboard.
