The Z270 Krait Gaming LGA1151 ATX Motherboard from MSI is designed with gamers in mind by allowing you to build a Windows system that runs on an Intel 6th- or 7th-generation processor along with three graphics cards linked with AMD Crossfire or NVIDIA SLI technology. The Krait comes outfitted with an LGA1151 socket as well as an Intel Z270 chipset that supports the various features of this motherboard, such as three PCIe 3.0 x16 slots, four DDR4 memory slots, two M.2 slots, and more. Furthermore, an onboard Realtek ALC1220 audio processor delivers 7.1-channel sounds through the motherboard's six audio jacks to complete the multimedia experience.
