MSI also confirms that B560 series motherboards will get memory overclocking support. MSI's B560 lineup will be equipped with at least 6 PCB layers that would allow them to handle high-speed memory signal transfer. The top model which is the B560I Gaming Edge WiFi will support memory overclocked speeds of up to DDR4-5200 MHz while the rest of the lineup will be able to handle speeds of up to DDR4-5066 MHz.
MSI Z590 & B560 boards will also come with a new Memory Try It! feature which offers 100 sets of settings for Samsung, Hynix, Micron, Nanya, PSC, CXMT, Spectek memory ICs with Comet Lake, and up to 500 sets with Rocket Lake CPUs.
In addition to memory overclocking, MSI 500-series motherboards (Z590, B560, H510) will come with unlocked power limit support. So while you won't be able to overclock your 10th or 11th Gen Intel CPUs on B560 and H510 boards, you can get unlocked power limits which would allow you to sustain boost clocks for longer periods but at the cost of higher power draw. You can select various power limit profiles based on your cooling. The power limits go up to 255W (PL2) with a current limit of 210 Amps.
