The MSI X99A Godlike Gaming Carbon Motherboard is the latest from MSI’s collection of high-performance gaming gear. Made from an extremely sturdy body of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer, which is typically used in the racing and aerospace technology industries, this motherboard is built to last. Its heavy plated armor, enhanced heatpipes, dragon heatsink, and dragon cover ensure that it stays cool even in the most intense battles. And with Mystic Light—which offers a wide range of colors and different lighting effects to choose from—it’s sure to complement your existing battlestation, or spice it up with something new.
Note: At checkout, choose between the MSI X99A Godlike Gaming Carbon Motherboard, X99A Xpower Gaming Titanium, and the X99A Gaming Pro Carbon.
Unlike traditional memory designs where signals are often distorted by electromagnetic signals from other components, the X99A’s design utilizes DDR4 Boost technology with fully isolated memory circuitry to ensure signal purity. Killer DoubleShot-X3 Pro allows the two Killer Ethernet connectors and Wi-Fi adapter to work in tandem for the highest speeds around (up to 2.867 Gbps) whether you’re using a wired or wireless connection. The Killer Network Manager allows users to customize which applications receive the most bandwidth, so you can prioritize your favorite games over other programs.
The MSI X99A Godlike Gaming Carbon Motherboard is no slouch when it comes to sound, either. Every audio component—from the jacks to the capacitors to the amplifiers—has been engineered to deliver the highest quality sound to satisfy even the most discerning listeners. With Audio Boost 3 Pro, which is powered by Nahimic Sound Technology, it delivers crystal clear 8-channel HD audio to help you hear more detail in your favorite games, movies, and music. And as opposed to most motherboards, this one is able to deliver a steady stream of 5V power to each USB port for the lengthy sessions at the keys.
OC Genie delivers an extra push of adrenaline when the action gets hot. At the touch of a button, you can increase the X99A’s performance by up to 20 percent. When you’re transferring files, use one of the two MSI USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, which offer transfer speeds up to an impressive 10 Gb/s. Turbo M.2 helps reduce boot up times and application loading times with speeds that are five times faster than a standard SATA III connection. Plus, the MSI Super Charger is great for quickly charging external devices like smartphones and tablets when you aren’t gaming.
