Product Description

To master the game you need a masterful system. The MSI Enthusiast GAMING motherboards are honoured with the suffix 'M for Master' to cite its truly outstanding design, ready to guide you to the next level in gaming.  With traditional memory design the memory signals are often distorted by electromagnetic signals from other components, making the system perform slower or become unstable. MSI introduces DDR4 Boost technology with optimized traces and fully isolated memory circuitry. This design ensures the memory signals stay pure for optimal performance and stability.  An added XMP LED highlights an active Extreme Memory Profile for the best memory speed and stability setting.  Designed with gaming DNA, Killer LAN is optimized for championship level online and LAN eSports.  The new Killer E2400 Intelligent Networking Platform, featuring Advanced Stream Detect 2.0, is built for maximum networking performance for online games and high-quality streaming media. Killer LAN automatically detects and accelerates game traffic ahead of other network traffic for smoother, stutter-free in-game performance and the competitive edge.  Dedicated to giving you the best online gaming experience with optimized traffic prioritization and low latency, MSI GAMING LAN Manager automatically classifies and prioritizes the latency-sensitive applications for online games.  Featuring 15KV anti-surge protection to shield your network from lightning strikes and static electricity, LAN Protect is a LAN connector designed to give you the best networking experience. It's highlighted with a red LED inside the RJ45 connector to show its functionality.  With Audio Boost 3, powered by Nahimic Sound Technology, we're delivering the highest sound quality through the use of premium quality audio components. That way, you can enjoy breath-taking, crystal clear sound and music through 8-channel HD Audio or high impendence headphones and truly dominate the game.
