Cooling

For cooling, this motherboard has two fan headers that support both DC and PWM modes, which allow you to manually or automatically adjust speeds within BIOS or a third-party software, so you can find your preferred balance between cooling and noise.

Storage

Aside from standard SATA ports, the B450M PRO-M2 also has a single M.2 slot, which is PCIe 3.0 x4 compatible for speeds of up to 32 Gb/s when used with an appropriate drive. Additionally, you can use MSI X-Boost and AMD STOREMI to help optimize your drives' storage and 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.
