Review: MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard [7B17-012R]

The MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard  [7B17-012R] belongs to the MSI Performance GAMING series, is not far from the top solutions: with this motherboard you can build a powerful PC that can handle both modern games or serious work, such as video processing and 3D graphics.

It has a strict stylish design: the motherboard textolite is painted black, but some of the heatsinks are in contrasting white. The bends of the device resemble sports car bodies.

The motherboard has a powerful Intel Z390 chipset, focused primarily on Intel 9th ​​generation processors with great overclocking support.

The board is equipped with a large number of modern interfaces and expansion slots, some of them: 3 x PCI 3.0 Sli, Cross; 3x USB 3.1 Gen2; 6 x SATA, 2 slots for fast SSD of M.2 format. You can install 4 x DDR4 memory units up to 64 GB with a maximum speed of up to 4400 MHz. Memory slots are additionally shielded.

We should also note the sound based on Realtek ALC1220P-VB2. Microphone noises, echo, and other artifacts that interfere with normal communication – all this does not threaten the owners of the motherboard from MSI.

Another argument in favor of buying MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon for gamers is supporting of the MYSTIC LIGHT synchronized backlight system, all devices compatible with the MYSTIC LIGHT will glow in the same color.

MSI STEEL ARMOR technology protects the slots for video cards and RAM from interference, deformation and high voltage. Overcurrent protection is achieved through enhanced soldering and earthing points on the RAMe and PCIe 3.0 x16 slots. In the production of the motherboard used solid-state Japanese capacitors SOLID CAP with a service life of up to 10 years and Titanium Choke chokes, which allow the device to work on high temperatures better than conventional components.
