THERMAL SOLUTION FOR MORE CORES AND HIGHER PERFORMANCE

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 2 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.

12 + 1 +1 DUET RAIL POWER SYSTEM

Unleash and sustain maximum performance with an aggressive VRM design built with a total of 12 Duet Rail Power System(DRPS). Combining 8 + 4-pin power connectors and exclusive Core Boost technology, PRO series motherboard is ready to sustain heavy daily work.
