With Intel’s ‘One Step Ahead’ in terms of the higher core count mainstream processors, “Coffee Lake” is the next big thing. One thing that these modern day processors want from you, is the upgraded motherboard selection. So to give a tough time to its competitors, MSI has come up with its own version of the Z370 chipset, the ‘MSI Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon AC Motherboard’.
What’s Under The Hood?
Before moving on to its technical features, let me remind you that our very own team Australia used the MSI Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon AC for building up the craziest ever PUBG mod in the live stream they recently did. Also, our upcoming contestant of the Battlemods, ‘Team Thailand’ has also got an inventory back up from MSI in terms of the chipset. So get ready to witness the upcoming jaw-opening mod from ‘Team Thailand’ which is co-sponsored by MSI and Cooler Master. Here’s a brief list of specs featured in this Intel Z370-based Chipset:
- ATX form factor sizing 30.4cm x 24.3cm
- Based on the Intel LGA 1151 Version 2 CPU Socket
- Memory features include DDR4, 4 DIMMs, up to 64GB, up to 4000MHz+ with OC
- The board comes with 2 x M.2 PCIe 32Gbps or SATA III 6Gbps slots
In terms of USB connectivity, we have:
- 2 x USB 3.1 (2 Rear, 1 Type-A and 1 Type-C, via ASM3142)
- 8 x USB 3.0 (4 Rear, 4 Front, via Z370)
- 6 x USB 2.0 (2 Rear, 4 Front, via Z370)
In addition to the above-mentioned specifications, we have 1 x Display Port and 1 x HDMI port. So, looking at this list of specifications and this design, the first thought that hits your mind is that this mobo is a continuity of the Z270 Gaming Pro Carbon. The interesting part is that MSI will be starting off the Z370 game with 13 models.
We are all excited to see the next big mod of Battlemods from team Thailand featuring the MSI Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon AC Motherboard and the PC based on this kind of technology beast, will definitely have a room for yielding the best results.
