Product Info

MSI H370 GAMING PLUS: For 8th Gen Intel® Coffee Lake1

featureThis MSI H370 GAMING PLUS Socket LGA-1151 v2 Motherboard is initially compatible with the latest 8th Gen Intel® Core™ Series, Pentium Gold G5xxx Series and Celeron G49xx Series Processors1. Additional compatible Intel® Processors will be available in the future.

Older Socket LGA-1151 Processors are not pin compatible with this new Motherboard; as per Intel®; due to differences in how each pin is used by the Motherboard.

Built for a customized gaming experience, the H370 GAMING PLUS features a M.2 Slot with PCI-E 3.0 x4 SSD and Intel® Optane™ Memory compatibility and Dual USB 3.1 Gen2 (10Gbps) ports to deliver maximum connectivity and the transfer speeds that improve overall performance.

MSI Motherboards Are Your Tactical Advantage

This MSI Motherboard along with a compatible Intel® 8th Gen Coffee Lake Core™, Pentium and Celeron Processor1 goes farther, faster than previous Consumer level Intel® CPUs and Chipsets ever have.

This Motherboad comes with enhanced clock rates, improved memory caching and higher "per core" IPC scores to give you the best possible gaming and overall performance.

  1. This Motherboard only supports 8th Gen Intel Core Processors on the LGA 1151 Socket. Pin assignments have changed, so 7th Gen and earlier LGA 1151 socket processors will not work. Any damage to this motherboard and / or 7th Gen and earlier LGA 1151 socket processors when used together voids the warranty of both products.
