Sink your competition with the MAG A520M VECTOR WIFI AM4 Micro-ATX Motherboard from MSI. Featuring the AMD A520 chipset, this gaming motherboard is compatible with processors using the AM4 socket. Two dual-channel RAM slots support a total memory capacity of 64GB and speeds up to 4600 MHz when overclocking. Storage drives can be installed using four SATA III interfaces or an M.2 slot, while a PCIe 3.0 x16 and two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots provide room for various adapter cards.

The rear I/O panel features four USB 3.2 Gen 1 and two USB 2.0 Type-A ports. A legacy mouse or keyboard can be connected to the PS/2 port, while displays can be hooked up using the DisplayPort or HDMI outputs. An RJ45 port is also present, supporting Gigabit Ethernet. Two Wi-Fi antenna connectors facilitate Wi-Fi 5 connectivity, while the preinstalled wireless controller further facilitates Bluetooth 4.2. The rear panel also sports three 3.5mm audio jacks. Relying on Realtek audio codecs, this motherboard supports 7.1 Surround Sound. The MAG A520M VECTOR WIFI AM4 Micro-ATX Motherboard is compatible with Windows 10 operating systems.

AMD A520 Chipset

The AMD A520 chipset supports 3rd Gen Ryzen processors using the AM4 socket.

Extended Heatsink

Keep high-end CPUs running at full speed, thanks to the extended PWM heatsink and optimized circuit design.

M.2 Shield FROZR

Part of the motherboard's heatsink design, the M.2 Shield FROZR ensures smooth SSD performance when temperatures rise.

Fan Control via BIOS and Software

MSI motherboards let you manage speeds and temperatures for all your system and CPU fans. Total Fan Control allows you check your primary system characteristics in a simplified graphical interface. You can also set up to four temperature targets for CPU and motherboard, which will adjust the fan speeds automatically.

Automatic Fan Detection

MSI fan headers can automatically detect if a fan needs to run in DC or PWM mode, streamlining the fan tuning experience.

4+2+1 Duet Rail Power System

Combining VRM design with Core Boost, this motherboard is designed to tackle heavy gaming loads.

Core Boost

Core Boost technology allows for precise and undistorted current delivery to the CPU. In addition to multi-core CPU support, Core Boost also benefits CPU overclocking.

Game Boost

Enable one-second overclocking with Game Boost, delivering more FPS for smoother gameplay.

Load-Line Calibration

Load-line calibration ensures your CPU voltage remains stable under any load, even with demanding, CPU-heavy performance.

Overvoltage Protection

Overvoltage protection prevents potential short-circuit damage to the CPU and other critical components.

Keep-Out Zone

Motherboard circuitry ensures case standoff keep-out zones are clear, preventing any contact between components and damage to the motherboard.

EZ Debug LED

Onboard LEDs for key components will indicate the source of the problem so you know exactly where to look to get up and running again.

2oz Copper PCB

An enhanced PCB design with 2oz thickened copper increases conductivity, improving heat dissipation and performance reliability during overclocking.

Double ESD Protection

Double ESD protection provides an optimized grounding layer around the mounting holes, preventing static discharge surges from damaging the motherboard.

Dragon Center

The Dragon Center unifies a suite of MSI software utilities into a single centralized application. Take control of advanced motherboards features for color calibration, live updates, user scenarios, hardware monitoring, fan control, RGB lighting, and product registration.

MSI App Player

Developed under an exclusive partnership with BlueStacks, the MSI App Player is intended to provide a seamless gaming experience between mobile games and the PC platform, utilizing customized features as specific keyboard lighting and better graphics when multitasking.

Isolated Audio Design

Like a dedicated sound card, audio components and circuits are located on a reserved motherboard section and electrically isolated.

Separate Audio Layers

Using separated layers in the PCB, this motherboard ensures accurate sound quality for both left and right audio channels.

USB 3.2 Gen 1

Synonymous with USB 3.1 Gen 1, USB 3.2 Gen 1 features a maximum throughput of 5 Gb/s when used with compatible devices.
