Mystic Light RGB Cover & Heatsink

The X470 Gaming Plus is built with RGB lighting that you can customize using MSI's software. Choose from multiple lighting effects and millions of colors to fit your style, and even sync it with other RGB-compatible product with Mystic Light Sync.

Cooling

This motherboard is built with six fan headers that support both DC and PWM modes for cooling your system. Once connected, the fans can be adjusted in BIOS or with a third-party software to your preferred speed, so you can find a perfect balance between noise and cooling performance.

AMD CrossFire Support

If you aren't getting the graphical fidelity and frame rates you want in your games, you can install additional graphics cards on this motherboard for enhanced performance. It supports up to 2- and 3-way AMD CrossFire. Please note that Ryzen desktop processors support up to 3-way CrossFire whereas Ryzen desktop processors with Radeon Vega graphics and A-Series/Athlon processors only support up to 2-way CrossFire.

Storage

There are six SATA III ports on this motherboard designed for traditional 2.5" and 3.5" drives. Moreover, it's also equipped with two M.2 slots that can utilize the PCIe 3.0 x4 interface for speeds up of up 32 Gb/s when used with a compatible NVMe drive. For an additional boost in performance, you can enable X-Boost within MSI's software. Additionally, MSI X470 motherboards include STOREMI, AMD's SSD technology that improves storage performance.

Audio

MSI Audio Boost consists of both hardware and software additions that are designed to provide you with a high-quality listening experience. The left and right channels are built on separate PCB layers, De-Pop Protection prevents loud popping noises, an EMI-shielded audio processor ensure clean stereo and surround sound, and a dedicated headphone amplifier automatically detects the optimal impedance for your headphones. For gaming, Nahimic 3 provides you with virtual surround sound with an in-game overlay that displays where noises are coming from.

Memory

The DDR4 memory slots on this motherboard are built with an optimized memory layout to offer stability, performance, and low power consumption. Additionally, this motherboard supports XMP for enhanced RAM speeds. Please note that A-series/Athlon processors support up to 2400 MHz, and the supporting frequency of memory varies with installed processor.
