Z390 ACE (Socket 1151) DDR4 ATX Motherboard
The MSI MEG Z390 ACE uses Z390 chipset and supports Intel's 9th generation Coffee Lake-S refresh processors.
The latest generation motherboards introduce some fundamental changes, including native ac-WiFi and USB 3.1 support. As a result, these features no longer require third party controllers.
The Features of the MSI MEG Z390 ACE at a Glance:
- 3x PCIe (3.0) x16 (x16/x8 /x4) & 3x PCIe x1
- 8x USB 3.1 (5x Type-A & 1x Type-C)
- 4x USB 3.0 and 8x USB 2.0 (internal & external)
- 3x M.2 (2x PCIe 3.0 x4) / 6x SATA 6G
- max. 64 GB DDR4-RAM up to 4500 MHz
- Integrated RGB-LED-Header
- Integrated WiFi- and Bluetooth-Module
The MSI MEG Z390 ACE in Detail:
Using the cutting edge i9-9900K processor, the MSI MEG Z390 ACE natively supports speeds of up to 2666 MHz, and up to 4500 MHz with overclocking. It can handle intense graphic applications since it is compatible with NVIDIA's SLI- and AMD's CrossFireX technologies for linking multiple GPUs.
There are also numerous technical innovations, enhancements and an array of storage solutions. For instance, there are three PCIe x16 slots, as well as three further PCIe x1 slots. It has three M.2 slots capable of running ultra fast NVMe-M.2 SSDs, resulting in a data transfer rate of nearly 4 GB/s. This makes M.2 PCIe SSDs up to eight times faster than SATA 6G SSDs.
There are six SATA 6G connectors for 3.5"- or 2.5" hard drives and -SSDs (incl. RAID support). Up to 64GB of RAM can be added across four DIMM slots.
The board offers excellent options for connecting external peripherals. The motherboard comes with an I/O panel boasting an array of the very latest and greatest connectivity standards including eight USB 3.1 (5x Type-A & 1x Type-C), four USB 3.0 and 8x USB 2.0 ports (internal & external).
Video is displayed via an HDMI or DisplayPort 1.2 while an AUDIO BOOST DAC allows for excellent sound output.
