Cooling

  • Extended Heatsink Design
    With more cores' processors, thermal and power design is more important to make sure the temperature keeps lower. MSI extended PWM heatsink with 7W/mK thermal pad ensures even high-end processors to run in full speed with MSI motherboards.
  • M.2 Shield Frozr
    World's fastest SSDs can start to lower performance when getting hot. Part of the motherboards heatsink design, M.2 SHIELD FROZR is the next generation M.2 thermal solution to avoid this by offering the best thermal protection to make sure that SSD maintains maximum performance.
  • 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.

Design

  • Flash BIOS Button
    Run into trouble when updating your BIOS? Simply flash the old BIOS version back and continue working 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.
  • XL Clip
    The enlarged PCI-E clip helps you swap or remove your devices easier. Keep the PCI-E slot stronger and safer.
  • Keep Out Zone
    Circuits have been routed away from the case standoff keep out zones to minimize the damage impacts of misplaced mounting pieces.
  • Atypical PCB
    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.

Reliable Components

  • 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.
  • Double ESD Protection
    Double ESD protection doubles up the grounding layer around the mounting holes, preventing static discharge surges from damaging the motherboard.
