MSI Z170A GAMING M5

Together with the first Skylake 6th generation processors, Intel also introduced a brand new Z170 chipset. And that's the brain of the perfect motherboard MSI Z170A Gaming M5, which is designed especially for more demanding users. With its capabilities, it is the ideal choice for creating powerful game assemblies that can be used to play games as well as to work with demanding multimedia content.

Ideal board for those who want the maximum from their PC

The MSI Z170A Gaming M5 is equipped with a LGA 1151 socket, in which the 14nm Skylake processors will provide ultimate performance. It does not even settle for basic memory slots. Here is a clear transition to a more modern version in the form of DDR4 at the base frequency 2400 MHz. However, overclocking is supported up to 3600 MHz. This is especially great news for experienced overlockers. You will also appreciate the exceptional design of the entire PCB, which is also very functional. The system of high-quality passive coolers will ensure very good operating conditions even in demanding applications. This board will simply allow you to go to the edge of overclocking.

On waves of radiant power

PCI Express 3.0 slots are used to plug in graphics cards. When using CrossFireX or SLI cards, you get the chance to enjoy the graphical resolution of your most up-to-date games. MSI Steel Armor has more and better bonded points that guarantee greater durability while protecting against electromagnetic interference for a carefree gaming experience.

The current SATA Express ports , as well as the recently-searched M.2 interface, are great for connecting the latest generation SSD. External drives will enjoy high speeds thanks to the presence of the second-generation USB 3.1, boasting massive acceleration over the 2.0 generation. The requested files are transferred up to 20 times faster.

Even the sound side does not stand side by side and is proud of NAHIMIC technology. It is still used in the army and aerospace industries. The computer world brings bass highlighting, the clarity of even the slightest sounds, but also the superior sound quality of the studio while streaming over the Internet.

Certified for Game Deployment

MSI game boards are tested in our gaming lab and Internet cafes and, together with the world's best eSports players, make sure you get the most performance and reliability in the world's most popular games. Each board is tested with over 24 hours of testing, where both online and offline games are played. At the end of testing, we're confident that network configuration, audience reception, and overall performance are properly tested and tuned to perfection, and you enjoy the best gaming experience. The certificate will only receive the motherboards that successfully pass this test. Only then can they be called true game boards of the MSI Gaming series.

Felix, Praha 2 - Nové Město 27/12/2015
Great choice for a gamer - has all that is needed (M7 offers luxuries that are not so relevant) Great command center to adjust performance and very simple to use auto update. I had to, and I heard from others the same, take out the CMOS battery, wait 1min, and put it back in before it would start working. This resets the BIOS. Why that is needed I dont know. It took me quite a long time to figure that out. The Intel ME driver that comes with the install CD is quite old and did not install (froze the system). Untick this during install and download a new one instead.
