Product Overview

Intel Core i5 12600K 10-Core Processor

Performance that Puts Gaming First

Compete with confidence or get immersed in new worlds with a revolutionary processor architecture that focuses on what matters most – gaming.

Divide and Conquer

Intel’s new performance hybrid architecture integrates two core families into a single CPU, keeping everything in your gaming universe running smoothly.
6 Performance-cores (the foreground): P-cores are built for performance across single and lightly-threaded workloads, enhancing activities like gaming and productivity.
4-Efficient cores (the background): E-cores are optimized for multi-threaded performance, minimizing interruptions from secondary tasks.
Intel® Thread Director: Prioritizes and manages workloads, sending tasks to the best core for the job.

Performance Beyond the Cores

The new processor architecture is also compatible with the latest platform innovations, giving you performance improvements throughout your PC.
Ready for What’s Next: Support for PCIe Gen 5 and DDR5 for high-performance components like memory and graphics.
Best-in-class Connectivity: Thunderbolt™ 4 and Intel® Killer™ Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) deliver fast transfer speeds and connections to peripherals.
Streamlined Overclocking: Separate overclocking controls for both types of cores gives you nuanced personalization.

MSI PRO Z690-A DDR4 Motherboard

Lightning GEN 5 PCI-E

MSI Lightning Gen 5 PCI-E represents the bandwidth of a x16 interface to 128GB/s, which is double of the speed of the previous generation. The advanced SMT(Surface Mount Technology) PCI-E slot diminishes the interference and electrical noise, fully supporting higher bandwidth and faster transfer speeds of PCI-E 5.0 signal.

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. Not only supporting multi-core CPU, but creating the perfect conditions for your CPU overclocking.

6-Layer Server Grade PCB With 2OZ Thickened Copper

An enhanced PCB design with 2oz thickened copper and multilayer server grade solution increases conductivity, improving heat dissipation and performance reliability especially during overclocking.

Extended Heatsink

Metal extended heatsink enlarge the surface of heat dissipation, ensures even high-end processors to run in full speed.

USB Type-C Ready In Both Front Case Panel & Rear IO

Get all the performance benefits from the USB Type-C connector. This reversible USB connector allows for effortless connecting of USB devices.

Lightning GEN 4 M.2 With M.2 Shield FROZR

Cooling your NVMe SSD delays throttling which results in higher overall performance. Part of the motherboards heatsink design which helps avoid SSD throttling by offering the best thermal protection.

Faster Lightning USB 20G

The transmission speed of the latest USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 reaches up to 20Gbps, which is four times faster than USB 3.2 Gen 1 solution. PRO Z690-A DDR4 offers stable high speed transmission by reversible Type-C as well as read and write your files over USB faster than ever.

14 + 1 + 1 Duet Rail Power System

Unleash and sustain maximum performance with an aggressive VRM design with concurrent stable power delivery. Combining 2x 8 pin power connectors and exclusive Core Boost technology, PRO Z690-A DDR4 motherboard is ready to sustain heavy daily work.

Unmatched Memory Performance

MSI motherboards are crammed with features to fuel your system's memory with more speed, higher overclockability and increased stability. Optimized traces and a fully isolated memory circuitry ensures perfect stability and performance, so you never have to worry about your system crashing.

Maximum Data Transfer With 2.5G LAN

PRO Z690-A DDR4 features high-bandwidth and low-latency dual Ethernet networks for demanding creators and power users. Onboard 2.5Gbps connectivity provides incredible data transfer speed faster than ever before. MSI LAN Manager automatically classifies and prioritizes the latency-sensitive for your applications, giving you the best online experience with low latency.

Easy To Arrange Your Cables

Not clever at cable arrangement? MSI Atypical PCB design not only the identity of stylish but also makes SATA and USB cable routing easier. Arranges cable neatly even you are not familiar with system build.

Multiple GPU Supports And Steel Armor

PRO Z690-A DDR4 supports multiple GPU solution. Optimal PCI-Express slot placement allows for better fitting and airflow. That way, you can enjoy the best graphics at the highest framerate jumping from your screen when running an AMD CrossFire™ setup. Steel Armor has more solder points on the PCB for more strength and protects the PCI-Express signals against electromagnetic interference for a stutter-free user experience.
