MSI PRO Z690-A INTEL CORE 12TH GEN MOTHERBOARD
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 optimized professional workflows but also less troubleshooting and longevity.
THERMAL SOLUTION FOR MORE CORES AND HIGHER PERFORMANCE
With more cores’ processors, thermal and power design is more important to make sure the temperature keeps lower. MSI extended PWM heatsink with 7W/mK thermal pad ensures even high-end processors to run in full speed with MSI motherboards.
M.2 SHIELD FROZR
World’s fastest SSDs can start to lower performance when getting hot. Part of the motherboards 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 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.
- Performance Mode
- Silent Mode
- Mannual Mode
OPTIMIZED FOR WATER COOLING
Designed to support the most popular All-In-One & customized water cooling solutions on the market. A dedicated water pump PIN header supports up to 2 amp, giving you full control of the water pump speed. A clearly marked ‘keep-out-zone’ allows for easy and safe installation and a perfect fit.
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.
OPTIMIZE NETWORK FOR LOWER LATENCY!
MSI LAN Manager automatically classifies and prioritizes the latency-sensitive applications, giving you the best online experience with low latency.
SMT PCIE 5.0 SLOT
MSI motherboards adopted the advanced SMT(Surface Mount Technology) PCI-E slot to diminish interference and electrical noise, fully supporting higher bandwidth and faster transfer speeds of PCI-E 5.0 signal.
LIGHTNING GEN 5 PCI-E
MSI Lightning Gen 5 PCI-E represents the bandwidth of a x16 interface to 128GB/s, which is double of the speed of the previous generation.
LATEST DDR5 MEMORY
MSI OC LAB does not merely work hard on extreme overclocking. The XMP memory profile has great improvement on performance and efficiency for Z690 . Easy to enable XMP profile with auto power settings to get the best memory speed and stability.
SMT DDR5 MEMORY SLOT
The advanced SMT(Surface Mount Technology) welding process reduces the defect rate of slot solder joints, electromagnetism, and interference. Combining with exclusive Memory Boost technology allows MSI motherboards to deliver the clean and pure high-frequency DDR5 signal.
Core Boost technology combines MSI’s premium layout and optimized 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.
