Product Overview PRO Series: Making Your Life Easier Is Our Business
The PRO Series motherboards fit in any PC. Quality you can trust with top performance and clever business solutions are key aspects of these motherboards. Make your life easier and boost your business with the super stable, reliable and long-lasting PRO Series motherboards.

Productivity

Unmatched Memory Performance and Stability

DDR4 Boost
With traditional memory design the memory signals are often distorted by electromagnetic signals from other components, making the system perform slower or become unstable. MSI introduces DDR4 Boost technology with optimized traces and fully isolated memory circuitry. This design ensures the memory signals stay pure for optimal performance and stability.

Fast Storage with SATA Express
SATA Express offers a solution in high speed storage through PCI-Express, providing more bandwidth for the latest generation SSDs up to 16 Gb/s.

Push Your SSD Harder with M.2
M.2 doesn’t need any power- or signal-cables and with a very small footprint M.2 is the storage connector of the future replacing traditional HDDs/SSDs.

Motherboard Supports NVM Express

Reliability

Military Class 4 Components

Dark Choke
Dark Choke uses the special core design and allows the Dark Choke to run at a lower temperature with higher capacity and better power efficiency and stability.

Solid Cap
With their aluminum core design and Japanese made quality, Solid CAPs are made for high-end design motherboard. Not only do Solid CAPs could provide lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR), but also work firmly for over-10-year.

Guard-Pro
• Humidity Protection: Reduction in moisture absorption helps prevent "Conductive Anodic Filament". Untreated PCB's can have 10x higher failure rate.
• High Temperature Protection: All key chomponents used in MSI motherboards have all passed military testing ensuring stable operation in the harshest environments.
• Circuit Protection: Carefully selected materials, multiple PCB layers and shielding result in the best circuit protection for our GAMING motherboards.
• ESD Protection: Each and every I/O port is protected against the hazards of Electro Static Discharge.
EMI Protection: All MSI motherboards comply with strict American FCC regulations and reduce the impact of Electromagnetic Interference.

EZ Debug LED: Easy Diagnostic
MSI EZ Debug LED is an easy troubleshooting tool using 3 LEDs to indicate CPU / Memory / VGA operation every time you boot up your system. Run into trouble? Use the LEDs to easily identify the source of your problem and get back into operation quickly.

Enhanced CPU Overvoltage Protection
Onboard overvoltage protection prevents overvoltage and short-circuit damage of the CPU and other components. A red LED near the 24 pin CPU power connector let you know that overvoltage protection is activated for easier troubleshooting.

Optimized for Multiple Graphics Cards

AMD CrossFire Technology Support
This motherboard supports AMD CrossFire™. Optimal PCI-Express slot placement allows for better fitting and airflow.

That way, you can enjoy the best graphics at the highest framerate jumping off from your screen when running an AMD CrossFire™ setup.

Prevent Damage!
Worried about damaging the PCI-Express slot or your graphics card because of the weight?

MSI® VGA Armor
With the increased size and weight of modern high end graphics cards, traditional PCI Express slots often show signs of bending or even breaking. Meet VGA Armor, strengthened PCI Express slots using more solder points to make sure you never have to worry about breaking off any of the slots.

MSI® VGA Armor with Reinforced, Heavy Soldered Connections is up to 35% Stronger than VGA slots with no Strengthening.
