Product Overview

Premium Hardware Design

With years of experience, MSI is no stranger to building high-performance motherboards. Our R&D and engineering teams have reviewed countless designs, evaluated a wide selection of high-quality components, and developed products for reliability even under extreme conditions.


Fully Controllable IN BIOS and Software

MSI motherboards let you manage speeds and temperatures for all your system and CPU fans. Total Fan Control allows you check your primary system characteristics in a simplified graphical interface. You can also set up to 4 temperature targets for CPU and motherboard, which will adjust the fan speeds automatically.


Optimized for Water Cooling

Designed to support the most popular All-In-One & customized water-cooling solutions on the market. A dedicated water pump PIN header supports up to 3 amp, giving you full control of the water pump speed. A clearly marked 'keep-out-zone' allows for easy and safe installation and a perfect fit.


Core Boost

Core Boost technology combines MSI's premium layout and digital power design which allows for faster and undistorted current delivery to the CPU at pin-point precision. This creates the perfect conditions for multi-core CPU while high-loading operation.


1-Second Overclocking!

MSI Game Boost enables one-second overclocking, giving you the performance boost you need to get more FPS.


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.


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.


Easy BIOS Recovery with Flash BIOS Button

Run into trouble when updating your BIOS? Simply flash the old BIOS version back and continue gaming within minutes with Flash BIOS Button. Flash BIOS Button even works without a CPU, memory or graphics card installed!


EZ Debug LED

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


Fortify Your System with PCIe Steel Armor

MSI PCI Express Steel Armor slots are secured to the motherboard with extra solder points and support the weight of heavy graphics cards. When every advantage in games counts, Steel Armor shields the point of contact from electromagnetic interference.
