MSI Z270 overview

  • 1Description

MSI's Z270 Gaming M5 LGA1151 ATX Motherboard joins the performance from your Intel 6th- or 7th-generation processor and up to three dedicated graphics cards together, letting you create a gaming desktop computer. This motherboard comes built with an LGA1151 socket and an Intel Z270 chipset to support Intel's Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, Pentium, or Celeron processor. With an Intel Z270 chipset, it holds a greater amount of ultra-fast SSDs, via two M.2 slots, than an Intel Z170 motherboard. A built-in U.2 port is also available without the need for an M.2-to-U.2 adapter. Furthermore, it features an ATX form factor to support three PCIe 3.0 x16 and three PCIe 3.0 x1 slots along with four DIMM slots, which can offer memory speeds of up to 3800 MHz.

The Z270 Gaming M5 is equipped with onboard LEDs that illuminate the inside of your case with seven colors as well as five effects. You can control these LEDs via a Gaming app or mobile device.

On the rear panel, the Z270 Gaming M5 has been outfitted with two USB 3.0 and three USB 2.0 ports to access printers, scanners, and other devices. To quickly transfer data, it comes with two USB 3.1 ports that deliver data at a rate of up to 10 Gb/s. Moreover, one of the USB 3.1 ports features a USB Type-C design that lets you connect a USB-C cable the first try. There are also HDMI, DisplayPort, and Gigabit Ethernet outputs. Other notable features include six SATA III ports as well as a Realtek ALC1220 audio codec chipset, which delivers 7.1-channel sound to your speakers and headsets.
