Optimized for multiple graphics cards
MSI motherboards feature one or more PCI Express 3.0 slots, perfectly aligned and with enough space for an optimal airflow when using multiple graphics cards. That way, you will never have to worry about an overheating PC, while you are enjoying the best graphics jumping off from your monitor when running Nvidia® SLI™ or AMD CrossFire™ gaming setup

Meet the new speed king
USB 3.1 allows for speeds up to 10 Gbps, doubling the speed compared to USB 3.0 and 20x faster than legacy USB 2.0. USB 3.1 is even faster than SATAIII! Transferring your favorite games, music and movies over USB has never been faster.
- 20X faster than USB 2.0
- 2x faster than USB 3.0
- Up to 10Gbps data transfer bandwidth
- Boost transfer rate between your PC and external storage devices

With traditional onboard audio the signal is distorted by electromagnetic signals from the rest of the PCB. Acting like a dedicated soundcard by physically isolating the audio circuitry which is separated by a isolating path. Less interference gives you a more clear audio signal.

OC Genie 4
With the one-second overclocking option OC Genie we're giving you even more performance. Just hit the button and your PC gets another adrenalin shot straight away. Give your system an awesome performance boost with ease.

The MSI Click BIOS 4 is the latest UEFI BIOS with optimizations for Windows 8. Not only that it also reacts faster, runs smoother and has better mouse support. And this all comes with many cool features. Click on the button on the right to visit our dedicated BIOS page and learn more.
