The supported memory speeds are 3333 (OC), 3200 (OC), 3000 (OC), 2933 (OC), 2800 (OC), 2666 (OC), 2600 (OC), 2400, 2200 (OC), and 2133 MHz. There are a total of ten SATA III 6 Gb/s ports, one M.2 slot (Key M) that supports PCIe 3.0 x4 and SATA III 6 Gb/s devices with form factors of 2242, 2260, 2280, and 22110, one U.2 port that supports PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe storage, and one SATA Express port that supports PCIe 2.0 x2. Additionally, there are three PCIe 3.0 x16 slots that support x16, x16/x16, and x8/x16/x8 with 40-lane CPUs, as well as x16, x16/x8, and x8/x8/x8 modes with 28-lane CPUs, and two PCIe 2.0 x1 slots. There is one 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-C port, one 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-A port, four USB 3.0 Type-A ports, and four 480 Mb/s USB 2.0 Type-A ports on the back panel, while internally, there are four USB 3.0 ports and four USB 2.0 ports available through the internal USB connectors. Using the Realtek ALC1150 audio codec, this motherboard can support 7.1-channel (7 speakers + 1 subwoofer) HD audio, and network connectivity is achieved using Intel's I218LM and I210AT Gigabit LAN controllers.

Graphically, the X99A Workstation has integrated multi-GPU support for 3-way AMD CrossFire technology and 3-way NVIDIA SLI technology. While it is not equipped with an integrated graphics controller, this will allow users to purchase a compatible dedicated graphics card of their choice.

The X99A Workstation LGA 2011-3 ATX Motherboard has been designed with features such as CLICK BIOS 5, 10GbE connectivity, M-Cloud, Audio Boost, Total Fan Control, reinforced PCIe slots, CPU overvoltage protection, Military Class 5 components, humidity protection, high temperature protection, circuit protection, ESD protection, EMI protection, and more. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.

General Features

Turbo U.2
A Turbo U.2 connector delivers performance up to 32 Gb/s and supports 2.5" SSDs using the U.2 connector.
Turbo M.2 Steel Armor
Delivering speeds up to 32 Gb/s using PCIe Gen3 x4, Turbo M.2 is more than 5 times faster than a regular SATA III 6 Gb/s connection. Steel Armor provides improved signal quality so you can enjoy a fast system boot up and loading of applications and games.
SATA Express
SATA Express offers a solution in high speed storage through PCI Express, providing more bandwidth for the SSDs up to 16 Gb/s.
Memory Performance and Stability
With traditional memory design, the memory signals are often distorted by electromagnetic signals from other components, making the system perform slower or become unstable. MSI introduces DDR4 Boost technology with optimized traces and fully isolated memory circuitry. This design ensures the memory signals stay pure for optimal performance and stability. Steel Armor technology is now also available for DDR4 Boost, offering better EMI-shielding and signal strength for improved memory performance.
NVIDIA Quadro SLI Support
Steel Armor and optimal PCI Express slot placement help ensure stability and compatibility for heavy duty computing. Designed and optimized for NVIDIA Quadro multi-GPU setups for improved rendering efficiency.
Optimized PCB Design
MSI's design maximizes bandwidth to fully utilize professional graphics cards and high-end storage devices. Optimized compatibility & solid stability offers worry-free, professional usage.
Explore the improved CLICK BIOS 5 and use it to tune your system for increased performance. MSI CLICK BIOS 5 is the next generation UEFI BIOS with optimizations for Windows 10. Control your system in two modes: EZ mode, for the most used settings and functions, and Advanced mode for more detailed settings and fine-tuning options to boost your system's performance.
Combining two Intel LAN connectors (i218-LM & I210-AT), TEAMING reduces time spent waiting for big files being transferred and helps protects against copy errors.
Optimized 10GbE LAN Solutions
Supports Intel X540 10 Gigabit Base-T networking cards with improved signal strength.
MSI's M-Cloud is a convenient and secure way of saving personal files in the cloud. M-Cloud simplifies complicated settings with a user friendly interface and is easy to learn. Build and maintain your personal cloud with ease. M-Cloud can also turn your PC into an Access Point. You can easily share a wireless network or internet signal to other devices through just a few simple steps.
Industrial Level Test Standards
This motherboard goes through over 7,000 hours of testing.
Titanium Choke
Titanium Choke uses a Titanium core that has better abilities in thermal and higher temperature tolerance. This allows the Titanium Choke to run at a temperature of 428°F / 220°C, have a 40% higher current capacity, a 30% improvement in power efficiency, and better overclocking power stability.
With their aluminum core design, Dark CAP's have been a staple in high-end mainboard designs and provides lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR), as well as its over-10-year lifespan.
Humidity Protection
Reduction in moisture absorption helps prevent "Conductive Anodic Filament." Untreated PCB's can have 10x higher failure rate.
High Temperature Protection
All key components used in MSI motherboards have all passed military testing, helping to ensure stable operation in the harshest environments.
Circuit Protection
Carefully selected materials, multiple PCB layers, and shielding result in strong circuit protection for MSI motherboards.
ESD Protection
Each and every I/O port is protected against the hazards of Electro Static Discharge.
EMI Protection
