The B350 Gaming Plus ATX Motherboard from MSI enables you to put together a Windows desktop that operates on an AMD RYZEN, A-series (7th-gen.), or Athlon (7th-gen.) processor by featuring an AM4 socket and an AMD B350 chipset. The motherboard is outfitted with four memory slots for installing up to 64GB of DDR4 memory modules. For storage capabilities, it comes equipped with four SATA jacks as well as one M.2 slot, which supports ultra-fast SSDs running with NVMe technology. Additionally, it has a PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, a PCIe 2.0 x16 slot, a pair of PCIe 2.0 x1 slots, and a pair of PCI slots.

With an AMD Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) processor installed, the B350 Gaming Plus motherboard delivers up to 4K visuals through its HDMI port and lower resolutions utilising VGA and DVI-D outputs. MSI has built this motherboard with a Realtek ALC892 audio processor along with six audio jacks to complete the multimedia experience. As for USB connectivity, you get two USB 2.0 Type-A and three USB 3.0 Type-A ports as well as one USB 3.0 Type-C port for easy connections with USB-C cables. Other notable interfaces include a Gigabit Ethernet port and a PS/2 combo port. There's also a set of internal headers that support user-supplied liquid-cooling solutions and LED lighting strips to enhance cooling as well as personalise the insides of your case.

Key Features

AM4 Socket

AM4 chipsets provide dedicated PCIe lanes for USB, graphics, data, and other I/O.

Personalise Your Gaming Rig

Customise and set up your own colour scheme with RGB Mystic Light Sync. You can select any of the colours from the palette using the MSI Gaming app for smartphones and desktops to match your personal style. A Mystic Light extension header is on board for controlling optional RGB strips, fans, and other gear, without needing a separate RGB controller. Additionally, Mystic Light Sync can also work with select LED-enabled keyboards and mice.

Cooling

MSI fan headers automatically detect fans running in DC or PWM mode for optimal tuning of fan speeds and silence. Hysteresis technology is on board to make your fans spin up fluently to help ensure your system stays silent. Total Fan Control software is offered so you to take control of your fans and cheque the system's characteristics in a simplified graphical interface. You can also set up to 4 temperature targets for the CPU and motherboard, which will adjust the fan's speeds automatically. Additionally, the motherboard comes with a water-pump PIN header that supports up to 2A, offering you full control of the water pump's speed.

Audio

With premium audio components, this motherboard offers studio grade sound by offering separated audio layers, golden audio jacks, and Chemi-Con audio capacitors as well as an isolated audio design, De-Pop protection, and EMI-shielded HD audio processor.
