The MSI X570-A PRO AM4 ATX Motherboard is built on the AMD X570 chipset, supporting second- and third-generation AMD Ryzen processors with an AM4 socket. It has four memory slots for up to 128GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM, which can be overclocked to up to 4400 MHz. For storage, it's equipped with six SATA III ports and two M.2 slots. There are two PCIe 4.0 x16 slots for graphics cards, one of which only runs at x4, and three PCIe 3.0 x1 slots for other PCI-based hardware. Other integrated features include Realtek 8111H Gigabit Ethernet and Realtek ALC1220 7.1-channel HD audio.

AMD X570 Chipset

The AMD X570 chipset is designed around 3rd generation AMD Ryzen 3000-series processors. Along with multiple improvements, its most noteworthy one is the addition of PCIe 4.0. PCIe 4.0 has roughly double the bandwidth of PCIe 3.0, which is beneficial for graphics cards, networking devices, NVMe drives, and more.

Cooling

The X570-A PRO utilizes heavy-duty heatsinks on the MOSFETs for reliable processor power delivery and on the chipset to ensure the system stays operational under intense workloads. It's also equipped with multiple DC/PWM fan headers for users to connect additional cooling solutions. Users can set their cooling preference (Boost/Balance/Silence) as needed within the Dragon Center software or its UEFI BIOS. Moreover, MSI's M.2 SHIELD FROZR heatsink helps to prevent SSD throttling.

Lightning Gen 4 PCIe

Aside from the increased transfer speeds with PCIe 4.0, MSI's Lightning Gen 4 PCIe slots are reinforced with steel and built with a server grade PCB for additional durability. Please note that PCIe 4.0 is backwards compatible with PCIe 3.0.

CPU

A combination of an optimized circuit layout and MSI's CoreBoost CPU power delivery system ensures performance and stability for high-end processors. Additional features include load-line calibration, overvoltage protection, a digital power deign, and double power connectors.

Memory

MSI motherboards feature an optimized memory circuit layout and extensive compatibility testing with major memory manufacturers. Users can also easily overclock their RAM with A-XMP profiles within BIOS.

Storage

With the addition of PCIe 4.0, M.2 storage solutions can operate at up to 64 Gb/s with an appropriate card. This motherboard is equipped with two M.2 slots and six SATA III ports for traditional hard drives. Additional features include:

  • AMD StoreMI - Combines SSD and HDD storage into a hybrid drive to improve read/write speeds with larger capacity
  • Storage Boost - Automatically checks and optimizes SSDs to keep them performing at their best
  • M.2 Genie - Easily set up your M.2 SSDs in RAID 0 with less steps

USB 3.2 Gen 1 & Gen 2

USB 3.2 Gen 1 features a maximum throughput of 5 Gb/s. USB 3.2 Gen 1, USB 3.1 Gen 1, and USB 3.0 are synonymous. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, USB 3.2 Gen 2 features a maximum throughput of 10 Gb/s when used with compatible devices and is synonymous with USB 3.1 Gen 2.

Audio

The X570-A PRO is built with multiple hardware and software enhancements to improve sound quality including:

  • Realtek ALC1220 Audio Processor - Supports DSD Super Audio CD 120 dB SNR/32-bit playback and recording
  • Golden Audio Jack & S/PDIF - Ensures a better connection from devices
  • Isolated Audio Design & Separated Audio Layers - Audio components and circuits on separate PCB layers are located on a reserved spot on the motherboard and electronically isolated to preserve audio integrity
  • Nahimic 3 - Enhances audio playback and provides users with multiple audio adjustments including virtual 7.1-channel surround sound
  • VoiceBoost - Lowers game audio when users are speaking for improved clarity
  • De-Pop Protection - Prevents loud popping noises when devices are plugged/unplugged or when the system is turned on/off
  • Dedicated Headphone Amplifier - Automatically detects impedance up to 600 Ohms for studio-grade sound quality

MSI X570-A PRO Reviews

Don't waste your time and money

By Curtis

Both Pci-e m.2 slots were defective. Spent almost an hour with MSI tech support. Tried both new Western Digital Black nvme 1 TB solid state hard drives in another computer (both showed up in the bios on two other computers but not on this motherboard), cleared the cmos and started over, changed out power supply, etc. No luck. Finally was told the motherboard is defective. What a waste of money and time.

Great Motherboard for X570

No issues whatsoever with this motherboard. Clocks my RAM at 3600 DDR. I bought this to replace an ASUS TUF Gaming board I bought initially. Plagued with VGA errors. Google it. This is the board to get. Plus it was a little cheaper than the ASUS.

Board okay, MSI registration/support NOT user friendly

I'm a first-time PC builder so I can't offer much of an option on the hardware as such, but the board seems to work fine, installation of all components went OK. It all works. What I DON'T like is the MSI website and customer interface. It demands a ton of personal information, including a copy of the purchase invoice just to register the motherboard. The most infuriating part was it wants a three-digit check code, on a tiny sticker on the side of a power port on the MB, of course, already installed in the tower and nearly impossible to read. I had to use my camera phone to get a picture because I couldn't fit my head inside the computer case to see the number. And they had to know it was their motherboard because MSI read the serial number and filled in it automatically. I also tried to use their support interface. My SSD only seems to work in one of the two M.2 slots on the board. I want to ask if this was a feature or a bug. Again, fill out a ton of information, even though they had all the information from my registration/customer membership. Then, when I click on the SUBMIT button, it did nothing. HA HA jokes on me. Thanks, MSI. Next time I'll try ASUS or Gigabyte just so I won't have to deal with your time-wasting online customer service.

Amazing value for a X570 board

This motherboard has fast gen 4 pcie lanes, hdmi, optical audio and works well overall. There is considerable opportunity to tweak processor and memory speeds in the bios.

Did not know MicroSoft charge for MOB change.

Use for Photo editing. Regular desk work for Word/Excell. No video editing. No Over Clock. It took three weeks to receive product. Replaced old quard core PC. On bord Ethernet is better than my old PC and gave me better Down Load speed. Not Up Load. Most of performance improvement come from SSDs in new system. NO HDD. MOB is not big factor for improvement for my system Did not know MicroSoft charge for MOB change. Just for a second, they took $139.00 from me. Ridiculous!! This MOB is cheap. It's work. It's okay.

Worked perfectly for my Ryzen 3600 setup, very simple, nothing to say really. Not exceptional in any way, but easy to use and setup with simple bios.

Incredible for the price

I bought this board looking for a good X-570 mobo, not only was it cheap, it was also on sale. Normally you would expect some downsides for the price being so low, but the board performed perfectly.

What is the bios version?
Asked by: Ras
As the manufacturers do not provide this information when updating an existing model number, I am unable to verify this for you. It is possible our inventory is mixed with different revisions of the same product. Manufacturers do not update the product model numbers when new revisions are released. As a result, we are unable to discern revisions within individual shipment palettes from the manufacturers. I apologize for the inconvenience.
