The X370 Krait Gaming AM4 ATX Motherboard from MSI is built on the AMD X370 chipset, supporting AM4 CPUs such as AMD's RYZEN, 7th-generation A, and Athlon processors. Four DDR4 RAM slots support up to a max of 64GB at speeds of up to 3200 MHz. For storage, this motherboard has six SATA III ports and one M.2 slot for a variety of drive configurations. After installing an AMD CPU with integrated graphics, it can output content at up to 1920 x 1200 at 60 Hz via DVI-D or 2560 x 1600 at 60 Hz with HDMI. For more graphical processing power, there are two PCIe 3.0 x16 and one PCIe 2.0 x16 slot to handle graphics cards. Connect to the Internet via the Gigabit Ethernet jack, and plug your peripherals into its multiple USB ports, one of which features the reversible USB Type-C interface. Hardware aside, this motherboard is also packed with plenty of software additions to help you monitor, manage, and customise your build's performance and aesthetics.

Key Features

X370 and AM4
AM4 and X370 chipsets provide dedicated PCIe lanes for USB, graphics, data, and other I/O. The AM4 socket is compatible with AMD RYZEN series processors as well as 7th-generation A-series and Athlon processors.

Personalise Your Gaming Rig
This motherboard features LEDs on the back to create a glow inside your case. For additional lighting inside, Mystic Light extension headers are 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. Customise and set up your own colour scheme with the MSI Gaming app for smartphones and desktops to match your personal style.

MSI fan headers automatically detect fans running in DC or PWM mode for optimal tuning of fan speeds and silence. You can also monitor and adjust your fans as needed with the Total Fan Control software.

With premium audio components, Audio Boost 4, and Nahimic 2 technology, 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.
