Description

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.

  • Unmatched memory performance and stability

    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.
  • OC Genie 4

    OC Genie is the world's first built-in hardware overclocking technology on motherboards. With this one-second overclocking option we're giving you even more performance. Just hit the button and your PC gets another adrenalin shot.
  • The award-winning CLICK BIOS 5

    Explore the greatly improved, award-winning CLICK BIOS 5 and use it to tune your system to maximum performance. MSI CLICK BIOS 5 is the next generation UEFI BIOS with optimizations for Windows 10.
  • Stable, secure networking

    The Gigabit network adapter on MSI Professional motherboards offers fast, reliable and secure networking.
  • 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's you know that overvoltage protection is activated for easier troubleshooting.
  • Optimized for multiple graphics cards

    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.
  • Total fan control

    Total fan control gives you complete control of all your fans connected to the motherboard, through a revolutionary and easy to use interface.
  • Legacy DVI/VGA video support

    To support professional monitors, TV's, beamers and other displays, this MSI motherboard features DVI and a VGA video output. No matter what screen type you want to connect, using a dedicated graphics card or an onboard connector, MSI motherboards have you covered.
