Description

Each game demands different skills, each gamer selects, customizes and levels their own gaming character. Why stop there? MSI Performance GAMING motherboards allow you to fully customize and personalize your gaming PC to any color you want while delivering top performance for a great gaming experience.

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.

White PCB highlights compliment a unique design, to display when GAMING meets class. Perfect for gamers and case modders who are looking for something different.
