Build your next rig with the power of the MAG B560 TORPEDO LGA 1200 ATX Motherboard from MSI. Offering a multitude of robust features, the MAG B560M provides you with plenty of connectivity options suitable for high-end gaming components, ideal for builders looking to use high-end components as well as powerful peripherals.

Based on the Intel B560 chipset, you get access to an LGA 1200 socket for 11th and 10 Gen Intel processors, four dual-channel DDR4 RAM slots, three M.2 PCIe NVMe interfaces, and six SATA III ports, all working together to enhance your experience whether you are gaming or relaxing with some of your favorite media. Equip your rig with an array of graphics and utility cards with one PCIe 4.0 x16, one PCIe 3.0 x16, and one PCIe 3.0 x1 slot. Easily connect your resource-demanding peripherals, such as external drives and streaming interfaces, with multiple USB 3.2 Gen 1, Gen 2, and gen 2x2 ports. You can also utilize low-powered devices such as keyboards and mice with USB 2.0 ports. Dual RJ45 Ethernet ports are available, consisting of one Gigabit Ethernet and one 2.5 Gigabit port allowing you to use teaming functionality and increase the network performance of your system. This motherboard supports Windows 10 (64-bit) operating systems, offering a wide range of features designed to make the most out of your rig.

Comprehensive Cooling

The MAG B560M features a variety of comprehensive cooling solutions that keeps your system running under even the heaviest loads. Extended heatsink, M.2 Shield Frozr, full fan control, Frozr AI cooling, and a dedicated pump fan header work to provide you with a system that runs efficiently.

Power Design

Designed to maintain optimal performance by your high-end components, the MAG B560M uses a 12+2+1 Duet Rail Power System to deliver electrical current efficiently. Core Boost technology combines digital power design and MSI's premium layout to allow direct current delivery to the CPU, enhancing overall system performance. Game Boost enables one-second overclocking, giving you a performance boost for your games. Additionally, load-line calibration, overvoltage protection, digital power design, supplemental PCIe power connector, and double power connectors work together to ensure your system is stable no matter the load.

DIY Friendly

MSI designed the MAG B560M to incorporate various functions, whether you are brand new to building or a seasoned vet. A Pre-installed IO shield makes installation easier, while a Keep Out Zone covers the motherboard circuitry and prevents unwanted component contact. The EZ Debug LED system notifies you of potential issues when getting your rig together. An XL clip makes swapping graphics and utility cards easier by giving you a larger clip. EZ LED Control allows you to turn on or off internal lights in a second. Sporting an atypical PCB makes cable routing easier to manage when building. Additionally, the MAG B560M includes various decorative stickers so you can customize your motherboard to your liking.

Passive Protection

Comprised of a 2 oz thickened copper printed circuit board, the MAG B560M increases conductivity, improves heat dissipation, and provides reliable performance, especially during overclocking. Steel Armor PCIe slots provide additional support for heavier graphics cards with reinforced, heavy soldered connections and metal shielding. Double ESD protection acts as a grounding layer that prevents static discharges from damaging the motherboard. The MAG B560M is certified for gaming, ensuring that you get the best out of your components.

Enhanced Performance

MSI's Lightning Gen 4 capabilities ensure speedy performance when combined with an 11th Gen Intel processor, giving you speeds up to 64 Gb/s for your PCIe 4.0 x16 expansion slot as well as your M.2 storage interface. M.2 Auto Switch automatically ensures performance is properly allocated with the processor for optimal performance. DDR4 Boost and XMP adjusts your system parameters to optimize your memory's performance. A suite of BIOS and software applications enhance your system from adding additional overclocking management systems to screen calibration tools with true color, OC setting, live updates, total fan control, user scenarios, and hardware monitoring.


Experience enhanced network speeds essential for competitive online games with dual RJ45 ports giving you Gigabit Ethernet and 2.5 Gigabit LAN, unlocking enhanced network speeds. LAN Manager assists in prioritizing your wired connection for low-latency gameplay. USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C gives you up to 20 Gb/s speeds for devices connected to the back panel of the MAG B560M, giving you better signal and performance for resource demanding peripherals such as cameras and audio interfaces. Front panel USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C access is also available for compatible devices. A dedicated high-definition audio processor, high-quality audio capacitors, and 3.5mm jacks with S/PDIF output immerse you within your virtual landscapes. Isolated audio signal ensures each audio lane is clear and prevents audio crosstalk. De-pop protection reduces the pop sound when you plug and unplug speakers and headsets. Customize your RGB lighting strips with MSI Mystic Light. With 16.8 million colors and 29 different LED effects, you can add your own personal flavor to your machine.
