  • 1Description

Build an 8th-generation Intel desktop system with the MSI Z370 Gaming M5 ATX Motherboard, which offers an Intel Z370 chipset and LGA 1151 socket. This ATX motherboard comes equipped with four DDR4 DIMM slots for supporting up to 64GB of memory modules, and you can overclock the memory chips to 4000 MHz speeds. For storage, it has six SATA connectors and two M.2 slots. To create a gaming system or video-editing workstation, there are three PCIe 3.0 x16 slots. Furthermore, MSI lets you enhance your components by offering a BIOS FLASHBACK+ button, Clear CMOS button, 2-digit debug LED, and overclocking software.

The MSI Z370 Gaming M5 ATX motherboard is armed with onboard LED lighting and supports user-supplied LED strips to illuminate the insides of your case with 16.7 million colors and 17 lighting effects. With three USB 2.0, two USB 3.1, and two USB 3.0 ports available, the motherboard can accommodate external storage drives, printers, and other useful USB devices. The two USB 3.1 ports transmit data at 10 Gb/s speeds, and one of the USB 3.1 ports features a convenient USB Type-C design. Other notable connections include HDMI and DisplayPort outputs as well as six audio jacks powered by a Realtek ALC1220 processor. To access the Internet reliably, Killer E2500 Gigabit Ethernet is on board. For more connectivity options, you can install optional PCIe cards to the motherboard's three PCIe 3.0 x1 slots.

MSI Mystic Light
Customize your build with LED lighting, which can produce 16.8 million colors and 17 effects. Using the MSI Gaming App, you'll be able to swap through a variety of colors and effects to fit your style. There's also a 4-pin Mystic Light Extension RGB strip header for RGB strips and other RGB peripherals so you can add and sync LED strips. Mystic Light is also compatible with a wide range of LED-lit components such as graphics cards, CPU coolers, keyboards, and mice. 80 cm extender cable included.
Cooling
This motherboard is equipped with six fan headers, which support DC or PWM modes, to offer you full fan controls. For AIO or custom liquid cooling solutions, it sports a 2A water pump PIN header. MSI also includes Total Fan Control software that allows you to take control of your fans and check the system's characteristics in a simplified graphical interface. You can also set up temperature targets, which will adjust the fan speeds automatically.

    MSI Z370 Gaming M5 reviews

    Z370 Gaming M5 LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Buy MSI. I Use MSI. I Buy MSI Again. I've been using the MSI Gaming M5 motherboards for my last two builds. I had the Z170 earlier and would have kept it except for the fact that I needed the Z370 chipset for the Core i7-8700K. In my opinion: These boards are stylish, have the latest specs and features, good build quality, and work as advertised. I used my Z170 for nearly three years and I plan to use the Z370 for years to come. When it's time to upgrade, I'll be looking for the current M5 equivalent first.
