MSI B450 GAMING PRO CARBON AC overview

  • 1Description

The B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC AM4 ATX Motherboard from MSI is built on the AMD B450 chipset, supporting AMD Ryzen series processors with an AM4 socket. It has four RAM slots that can hold up to 64GB of dual-channel DDR4 memory at speeds of up to 3466 MHz when overclocked. For storage, there are six SATA III ports and two M.2 slots, one of which can operate at up to 32 Gb/s when used with a compatible NVMe drive. While this motherboard is equipped with DisplayPort and HDMI ports for onboard graphics, it also has a PCIe 3.0 x16 slot for a dedicated GPU as well as a PCIe 2.0 x16 and three PCIe 2.0 x1 slots for additional PCIe-based hardware. Other notable features include Realtek ALC1220 7.1-channel HD audio, Intel I211AT Gigabit LAN, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, and MSI Mystic Light RGB LEDs.

MSI Mystic Light Sync
The right side of the B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC is equipped with customizable RGB LED lighting. Download the MSI Mystic Light Sync software to choose your favorite color, breathing effect, and even sync it with other MSI Mystic Light Sync-compatible hardware and peripherals.
Cooling
This motherboard is equipped with six fan headers that support both DC and PWM modes, so you adjust their speeds either manually or automatically within BIOS or a third-party software to find a balance between cooling and noise.
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.
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, one of which can utilize the PCIe 3.0 x4 interface for speeds up of up 32 Gb/s when used with a compatible NVMe drive. An M.2 shield is included to help heat dissipation and prevent thermal throttling. For an additional boost in performance, you can enable X-Boost within MSI's software.
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.
