MSI B360-A PRO Intel Socket 1151 Motherboard

The Intel B360 chipset of the MSI B360-A Pro motherboard is designed for use with 8000- series Coffee Lake CPUs from Intel and supports USB 3.1 - without needing an additional add-in chip. The chipset also supports the connected M.2 slot natively over PCIe for ultra-fast NVMe SSDs and Intel Optane. Socket 1151 motherboards utilising the B360 chipset make the perfect foundation for a budget gaming PC or computer for the home office.


2x PCIe (3.0) x16 (x16/x4) & 4x PCIe (3.0) x1
1x M.2 (PCIe 3.0 x4) / 5x SATA 6G
1x USB 3.1 Type A & Type C
Total of 4x USB 3.0 and 6x USB 2.0 (internal & external)
Supports max. 64 GB DDR4-RAM at 2.666 MHz
7.1 HD Audio with 8 channels


The MSI B360-A Pro ATX motherboard comes with two PCIe x16 slots, of which one offers the full 16 lanes and the other 4 lanes as a connection to the chipset. The board offers four PCIe x1 slots for upgrade and add-in cards. Both PCIe 3.0 x16 slots support AMD's CrossFire technology to enable the use of two graphics cards simultaneously.

The M.2 slot is connected with four PCIe lanes and supports the NVMe protocol. When paired with a compatible M.2 SSD this enables a data transfer rate of almost 4 GB/s. This is roughly eight times faster than an SSD connected using the SATA 6G interface! Additional drives like SSDs, HDDs and optical drives can be connected by means of the five SATA 3.0 ports. A maximum of 64 GB of RAM at up to 2.666 MHz can be installed in four DDR4-DIMM slots.

On the I/O panel the MSI B360-A Pro offers two USB 3.1 ports, one of which is the slim Type C-style USB port and this can also be inserted in either orientation. USB 3.1 ports are, with a maximum speed of 10 Gbit/s, twice as fast as older USB 3.0 ports! Additional peripheral devices can be connected using two USB-3.0- and USB 2.0 slots.

One DVI- and one Displayport connector for display output are available on the I/O panel. The role of providing onboard sound falls to the six 3,5 mm outputs. The internal connectors include, among others, a COM Port, a TPM Header, six fan connectors, a water pump header, two USB 2.0 headers and one USB 3.0 header.
