X370 Xpower Gaming Titanium AMD X370 (Socket AM4) DDR4 ATX MotherboardExtensively-equipped X370 motherboard (ATX) from MSI, 2× PCIe 3.0 x16 (x16/x8) / 1× PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4), 2× M.2 & 6× SATA 6G, 3x USB 3.1 / 8× USB 3.0 / 6× USB 2.0, max 64 GB RAM at 2.666 MHz 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.
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 Xpower Gaming TitaniumThe MSI X370 Xpower Gaming Titanium is an ATX motherboard and comes with two lightning-fast PCI-Express 3.0 slots, of which one comes with a full 16 lanes and the other with 8. Furthermore a PCIe 2.0 slot with a 4x interface as well as three PCIe x1 slots are available for additional 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 and a USB 3.1 header for an additional port.
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 Xpower Gaming Titanium 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 A connector. This new kind of USB Type C port is particularly thing and can finally be inserted in either direction. USB 3.0 or USB 3.1 Gen 1 can reach a maximum transfer rate of up to 5 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 Xpower Gaming Titanium include the "Audio Boost 4" 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 3.1, 3.0 and 2.0, Gigabit LAN, universal PS/2 or five audio jacks for connecting 7.1 sound to the MSI X370 Xpower Gaming Titanium. Furthermore the monitor outputs of the integrated APU-GPU (optional) include two monitor outputs: HDMI and DisplayPort.

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.
