Motherboard MSI Z370-A PRO [7B48-001R] allow to use Intel 8th generation processors (Coffee Lake series). The boards have a larger number of PCI-e slots for connecting and using several video cards simultaneously, so with its rather low price, it is ideal for mining. Optimized power and advanced BIOS settings ensure a stable system for long cryptocurrency generation sessions with maximum efficiency.
It has Military Class 5 and Guard-Pro components, as well as reinforced openings for mounting the motherboard and one reinforced PCI-E slot. It has an impressive radiator’s size, stylish and professional look.
Intel 300 series motherboards do not have backward compatibility with 7th generation processors, so the owner of such processors would rather have to do a full upgrade of the system, including the purchase of a new processor.
The purchase is quite heavy – 9.3 kg due two 3 kg power supplies from Seasonic added into it, as well as the weight of the motherboard from the ASRock Z390. In order, there were powerful and quiet fans from Noctua, SSD from Samsung 970 series and memory kit with a backlit Corsair Vengeance RGB 16GB DDR4 Kit 3000.
