Quality board for workstations, and servers

The MSI C236A WORKSTATION is equipped with the LGA 1151 socket for the latest 14nm Skylake processors, from the Xenon E3 v5 series. At the same time, there are four electrically-noise-free screens for DDR4 memory modules. They operate at a base frequency of 2133 MHz with a maximum capacity of up to 64 GB, with ECC correction support. Three PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots are available to support multiple graphics cards. MSI VGA Armor, ensures the security of this solution, which guarantees greater resistance to solder joints at the point of stress.

Optimized for performance and stability

To connect the latest generation of SSDs, the existing SATA Express ports and M.2 sockets are great, but there are also six classic SATA IIIs. Even external drives are not left behind, thanks to the presence of USB 3.1, that boasts up to twice the speed of the previous version. The board is also ready to use the Intel X540 10Gb LAN Adapter, which uses Network Genie to provide a very fast, stable, and secure connection.
