X370 Gaming Pro Carbon AMD X370 (Socket AM4) DDR4 ATX Motherboard

High-performance motherboard (ATX) with AMD x370 chipset, 2x PCIe 3.0 x16 & 1x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4), 2x M.2 & 6x SATA 6G, 2x USB 3.1 / 8× USB 3.0 / 6x USB 2.0, integrated RGB-LED lighting Motherboards with the AM4 socket serve as the platform for the AMD Ryzen (Summit Ridge) quad-core, hexa-core and octa-core CPUs as well as "Bristol Ridge" and "Raven Ridge" desktop APUs from the A-series with integrated GPUs unlike the old Athlon X4 which came without an iGPU. The advanced AMX X370, B350 and A320 chipsets are aimed at the enthusiast, mainstream and entry-level segments coming with an abundance of modern I/O interfaces and connectors for hardware peripherals, while additional data links are provided by the GPU/APU.

AMD Logo The processor's integrated memory controller supports AM4 motherboards as well as fast and energy- efficient DDR4 RAM in dual-channel mode, as well as specialist ECC error-correcting memory depending on the motherboard. The advanced "Zen" microarchitecture in conjunction with the AM4 platform forms the perfect foundation for high-performance systems in a range of applications.

The Layout of the ATX-Format MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon

The MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon is an ATX motherboard and comes with a lightning-fast PCI-Express 3.0 slot, which comes with a full 16 lanes. Furthermore there is a PCIe 3.0 slot with a 8x interface, a PCI 2.0 slot with x4 lanes as well as three PCIe 2.0 x1 slots for other expansion cards. Up to 64 GB DDR4-RAM can be installed into the four RAM slots, which in turn operate at a maximum of 2.666 Megahertz. range of internal connectors includes, among other things, two USB 3.0 headers and two USB 2.0 headers for a total of four ports respectively.

Data storage devices such as SSDs and hard drives are managed via six SATA 6G connectors (incl. RAID support) as well as two horizontal M.2 slots, which are connected via 4 PCI-Express 3.0 lanes respectively and therefore provide huge speeds of up to 32 Gbit/s. M.2-SSDs measuring from 42 mm to 110 mm in length can be used and furthermore the cutting-edge NVM-Express protocol is also supported. This protocol has been optimised to take advantage of the parallel processing utilised by modern PCIe SSDs.

A further highlight of the MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon is to be found on the reverse of the motherboard, specifically the fact that the motherboard includes a USB 3.1 Type C connector and a USB 3.1 Type C connector. This new kind of USB Type C port is particularly thing and can finally be inserted in either direction. USB 3.1 or USB 3.1 Gen 2 can reach a maximum transfer rate of up to 10 Gbit/s per port. A special feature of the board is the integrated MSI "Mystic Light" RGB-LED lighting, which enables lighting on the VRM- as well as chipset cooler and on the PCB itself, including coloured lighting in all colours that can be controlled via app.

Other refinements of the MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon include the "Audio Boost 3" functionality with Nahimic Sound Enhancer 2, the stabilising "Steel Armor" and the Click BIOS 5 for simplified fine-tuning of the system. Last but not least, five fans with 4-pin PWM connectors as well as a pump for water cooling can be connected directly to the board. On the reverse of the motherboard is located the I/O shield which provides access to further devices and components via USB 3.0 and 2.0, Gigabit LAN, universal PS/2 or five audio jacks for connecting 7.1 sound to the MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon. Furthermore the monitor outputs of the integrated APU-GPU (optional) include two monitor outputs: HDMI and DVI-D.

Compatibility Note for CPU Coolers Utilising AMD Socket AM4:

Due to the revision in mounting hole distances for the new AM4 socket, CPU coolers with rear mounts will - compared with preceding sockets e.g. AM2(+), AM3(+) or FM2(+) - require AM4-compatible mounting brackets. Please ensure compatibility prior to purchasing. CPU coolers that are attached directly to the retention bracket of the motherboard retain compatibility.

Great now BIOS updated

So much better with recent BIOS/AGESA updates.

Stable, booting faster and supporting Samsung B-Die (8Pack) @ 3333C14 with R7 @3.8.
Decent option at this price.

It's okay

Personally I would go with another board still waiting on a Bios update to hopefully fix the issues this board currently has all other boards I have seen are giving good customer support and are keeping the customers up to date MSI are not doing this and right now it is not in a very good state and if I could go back I would have bought another board

Have to say though I do like the monochrome design with the RGB lights meaning this board can fit any colour scheme

Elliot Watson 2017-04-10

overall very good

paired this with a 1700x, straight out of the bios this only boots up @2667mhz and with bios updates it goes too 3200mhz ram speed

with cpu temps i cant find a voltage slide or im just being silly, just it seems to be locked @1.4v whats pretty high but seems fine

with the voltage clocked like that it auto boosted 3.9ghz on all 8 cores stable

overall really good and its in stock. all works good
