MSI X370 XPOWER Gaming Titanium Motherboard ($299 US):

The MSI X370 XPOWER Gaming Titanium comes in the lovely white and black design which is also seen on the Intel Z270 chipset based variant. The motherboard has a 10 phase PWM design fitted with the highest quality components. These allow higher overclockability and stability with Ryzen CPUs which will be fully supported by the AM4 socket. There are two aluminum based heatsinks fitted with heatpipe cooling that dissipate heat from the VRMs.

Four DDR4 DIMM slots allow for really fast memory support with capacity of up to 64 GB and speeds running past 4000 MHz (O.C.+). Expansion slots include three PCIe 3.0 x16 slots, three PCIe 3.0 x1 slots and dual Turbo M.2 slots (32 Gb/s). Storage options on the board include 6 SATA III 6 Gb/s ports, a Turbo U.2 port and dual USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 front panel headers.

The motherboard is powered by various power inputs. CPU is supplied through the 8+4 pin connector, the 24-pin ATX connector powers the board while an extra 6-pin power connector lies at the bottom to provide extra juice to the PCIe slots when running multiple GPUs.

There’s MSI Audio Boost solution for high quality, integrated audio output. Storage options include six SATA III 6 Gb/s ports and a single USB 3.0 front panel header. The MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon will retail at a price of $179 US or $225 CAD.

MSI B350 Tomahawk Gaming Motherboard ($110 US):

The second board is based on the B350 chipset which is a more affordable PCH for AM4 PC builders. The motherboard is a pretty decent design that comes with the AM4 socket and a 6 phase PWM design. CPU is powered by an 8-pin connector.

Four DDR4 DIMM slots offer support for memory capacity up to 64 GB. Expansion slots include two PCIe 3.0 x16, two PCIe 3.0 x1 and two PCI slots. There’s also a single M.2 slot. Do note that a single  PCIe slot is covered in metal shielding which is a new feature MSI introduced with their Z270 lineup and now extending it on to the upcoming AMD AM4 motherboards. Storage options include four SATA III 6 Gb/s ports and a single USB 3.0 front panel header.

Other features include a sweet design for gamers who want to build some interesting, gaming focused budget builds. This motherboard is going to cost $110 US or $138 CAD.

MSI B350M Gaming Pro Motherboard ($80 US) and MSI A320M Gaming Pro Motherboard ($70 US):

There are also two M-ATX motherboards from MSI that are based on the Gaming Pro design and priced under $100 US. These include the B350M Gaming Pro and the A320M Gaming Pro.
