MSI on Wednesday unveiled the company’s fully loaded AM4 motherboards aimed at the next-generation AMD RYZEN CPUs. The new products are the first to be coming with an enthusiast level design in addition to being fully equipped to cater to gamers and overclockers.
Thanks to OCaholic, we can show you some really cool photographs of the X370 XPower Gaming Titanium motherboard. It comes with the ready-to-go support for RYZEN, as well as an array of features absent on the previous-generation motherboards.
(Note: Among the motherboards that have so far been showcased at the CES 2017 are the MSI X370 XPower and the B350 Tomahawk.)
MSI X370 XPower Gaming Titanium Specs
The X370 XPower Gaming Titanium brings the white and black design that we have previously seen on the Intel Z270 chipset based variant. It has a 10 phase PWM design carrying high-quality components. The configuration and quality of specs ensure that the X370 is capable of delivering higher stability alongside a superior ability to accommodate overclocking on the RYZEN CPU. There are a couple of aluminum-based heatsinks equipped with heat pipe cooling that transfers the heat away from the VRMs.
Among key specs, the X370 has four DDR DIMM slots that enable very fast memory support with a maximum capacity of 64GB and a speed going well beyond 4000 MHz (O.C+). As for expansion slots, there are three PCIe 3.0 x 16 slots, three PCIe 3.0 x 1 slot, and dual M.2 slots of which one comes with Turbo speed compatibility (32Gbps).
Storage options comprise six SATA III 6Gbps ports, one Turbo U.2 port, and dual USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 front headers.
The power aspect is overseen by multiple power inputs, including the 8 + 4 pin connector, the 24-pin ATX connector. There’s also an additional 6-pin power connector at the bottom that provides extra power to the PCIe slots. Overclocking friendly features include an internal USB 3.1 connector that allows you to boot up BIOS using a flash storage device, reset/power switches, as well as an OC-BIOS switch.
