PRO series helps users work smarter by delivering an efficient and productive experience. Featuring stable functionality and high-quality assembly, PRO series motherboards provide not only optimised professional workflows but also less troubleshooting and more longevity.
User Friendly Design
MSI motherboards feature tons of convenient and smart design features for DIY users, countless system tuning and troubleshooting tools are at your disposal to push your system to new heights and satisfy even the most demanding tweaker. This makes it so easy to install your own motherboard without any issue.
Thermal Solution for More Cores and Higher Performance
With more cores’ processors, thermal and power design is more important to make sure the temperature stays low. MSI extended PWM heatsink with 7W/mK thermal pad ensures even high-end processors run at full speed with MSI motherboards.
M.2 Shield Frozr
World’s fastest SSDs can start to lower performance when getting hot. Part of the motherboard’s heatsink design, M.2 SHIELD FROZR is the next generation M.2 thermal solution to avoid this by offering the best thermal protection to make sure that the SSD maintains maximum performance.
Fully Controllable in BIOS and Software
MSI motherboards let you manage speeds and temperatures for all your system and CPU fans. Total Fan Control allows you check your primary system characteristics in a simplified graphical interface. You can also set up to 4 temperature targets for CPU and motherboard, which will adjust the fan speeds automatically.
Frozr AI Cooling
Detecting CPU & GPU temperatures and automatically adjusting fan duty of system fans to a proper value by adopting MSI AI ENGINE.
Optimised for Water Cooling
Designed to support the most popular All-In-One & customised water cooling solutions on the market, a dedicated water pump PIN header gives you full control of the water pump speed. A clearly marked ‘keep-out-zone’ allows for easy and safe installation and a perfect fit.
The most important thing of DIY is expandability. MSI PRO series motherboards feature plenty possibility for prosumers’ need. Stable LAN, faster storage and USB transfer speed and other expandable connectors are ready to enlarge your flexibility.
High-Bandwidth and Low-Latency Network
2.5Gbps LAN provides incredible data transfer speed faster than general Gigabit LAN. This is a premium solution for demanding users.
Optimise Network for Lower Latency
MSI LAN Manager automatically classifies and prioritises the latency-sensitive applications, giving you the best online experience with low latency.
Fast and Future-Ready Storage
MSI PRO series motherboards support all the latest storage standards, which allows users to connect any ultra-fast storage device. Higher efficiency makes your work easier.
Lightning Gen 4 PCI-E
MSI lightning Gen 4 PCI-E is the latest and the fastest PCI-E data transfer solution with 64GB/s of transfer bandwidth that has doubled compared to its previous generation. PCIe 4.0 maintains both backward and forward compatibility with older and newer specifications.
Lightning Gen 4 M.2
Utilising 11th Gen Intel Core processors, MSI B560 PRO motherboards feature latest Lightning Gen 4 M.2 which is the fastest onboard storage solution on the market with up to 64 Gb/s transfer speed.
Boost Your HDD to Perform Like an SSD
PC Enthusiasts can now enjoy the performance of an SSD on their HDD by coupling it with the new Intel® Optane™ Memory device. Intel® Optane™ technology provides an unparalleled combination of high throughput, low latency, high quality of service, and high endurance.
MSI PRO series motherboards are designed to satisfy any professional workflow. Elevate your listening pleasure and enjoy extreme sound quality. Moreover, with years of experience in creating performance enhancing tools that are easy to use, only the highest quality applications are at your disposal. The extensive features let you fine-tune your system to deliver reliable maximum performance.
12 + 2 +1 Power Design
Unleash and sustain maximum performance with an aggressive VRM design built with a total of 12 digital CPU power phases. Combining 8 + 4 pin power connectors and exclusive Core Boost technology, PRO series motherboard is ready to sustain heavy daily work.
A Huge Step of DDR Performance
MSI OC LAB does not merely work hard on extreme overclocking. The XMP memory profile has great improvement on performance and efficiency for B560. Easy to enable XMP profile with auto power settings to get the best memory speed and stability.
Core Boost technology combines MSI's premium layout and optimised power design which allows for faster and undistorted current delivery to the CPU at pin-point precision. Not only supporting multi-core CPU, also creating the perfect conditions for your CPU overclocking.
Dedicated High Definition Audio Processor
Make sure you enjoy the purest sound quality in both stereo and surround sound.
High Quality Audio Capacitors
A high-fidelity sound experience with exceptional acoustics and realism for studio level headphones is ensured.
HD Audio Connectors
Keep your sound perfect by transmitting your audio with pure digital signal.
Audio Boost protects your ears by eliminating those annoying loud popping sounds when you plug/unplug devices or turn your PC on/off.
Isolated Audio Design
Like a dedicated sound card, audio components and circuits have been laid on a reserved motherboard section and electrically isolated.
Separated Audio Layers
Using separated layers in the PCB ensures equally pristine sound quality for both left and right audio channels.
Secure boot is a security standard to make sure that a device boots using only software that is trusted. When the PC starts, the firmware checks the signature of each piece of boot software, including UEFI firmware drivers, EFI applications, and the operating system. The PC boots while the signatures are valid.
