The MSI X370 Gaming Plus ATX Motherboard features an AMD X370 chipset and AM4 socket to support AMD's RYZEN as well as 7th-generation versions of A-series and Athlon processors. This motherboard is designed for gaming and other uses by offering two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots, letting you install multiple graphics cards and link them with NVIDIA SLI or AMD Crossfire technology. For memory support, it comes outfitted with four DDR4 memory slots and six SATA connectors as well as one M.2 slot, which is compatible with ultra-fast NVMe SSDs. Aside from memory, it is equipped with Mystic Light Sync that allows you to install your LED lighting strips and other LED gear without the need for an optional LED controller.

The X370 Gaming Plus motherboard offers HDMI and DVI-D outputs for delivering up to 2560 x 1600 resolution utilizing an APU from AMD. For USB connections, it provides two USB 2.0 and four USB 3.0 ports as well as two USB 3.1 ports with 10 Gb/s speeds. In addition, one of these USB 3.1 ports sports a USB Type-C interface that enables you to connect with a USB-C cable the first try. Other notable connections include one Gigabit Ethernet port, one PS/2 combo port, and six audio jacks, which are powered by a Realtek ALC892 processor. There is also one PCIe 2.0 x16 slot and three PCIe 2.0 x1 slots to grant your system with additional capabilities, such as installing user-supplied 802.11 Wi-Fi and FireWire cards.

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 versions of A-series and Athlon processors.

Personalize Your Gaming Rig

You can customize and set up your own color scheme with RGB Mystic Light Sync. This motherboard comes with a Mystic Light extension header for connecting 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. Downloadable MSI Gaming app is available for control of the Mystic Light feature.

Cooling

MSI fan headers automatically detect fans running in DC or PWM mode for optimal tuning of fan speeds and quietness. Hysteresis also makes your fans spin up fluently to make sure your system stays silent. Total Fan Control software is offered so you can take control of your fans and check the system's characteristics in a simplified graphical interface. You can also set up to 4 temperature targets for the CPU and motherboard, which will adjust the fan's speeds automatically. Additionally, the motherboard comes with a water-pump PIN header that supports up to 2A, offering you full control of the water pump's speed.

Audio

With Audio Boost technology, this motherboard offers studio grade sound with 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. In addition, it comes with a dedicated headphone amplifier for supporting 600Ω impedance headphones.
