    So is it GAMING or not ? I can not tell, I am so confused with so much transparency….I always been an MSI customer: motherboards, graphic cards mainly. but recently I feel betrayed, as I recommend you to some of my friends. With this GPP bullshit I don't care whatever you produce I will not buy. The same for Asus or Gigabyte or other Nvidia minions.

  41. TuxNewsit! says:

    If this is an 11 phases im a turtle. Pls, be honest and write 4+2 phases on gaming pro and gaming plus and 6+2 or 8+0 (cant remember now) for this one. And remove that useless dual cpu power connector.

  44. BARF Gameplay says:

    This is a bit unrelated and might be a weird question, but you sound Dutch. I thought MSI was a Taiwanese company but is the marketing team in the Netherlands? Just interested as i'm a huge fan of MSI products, especially the aesthetics (black and red is my favorite colour scheme since i was a little kid).

  48. antikiller92 says:

    Could you tell me which ram is the best for this mobo plus a 2700x processor? I was planning on buying a F4-3200C16D-16GTZR but read that it may not be able to reach that speed of 3200 mhz. Any other recommendations? RGB?

  49. JA Bognini says:

    do I need to connect the 2 cpu 8-pins connector for my 2700X or just one 8-pin connector will do?

  50. -gravef1ghter- says:

    X470 Gaming Pro Carbon / AC
    Supports AMD® Ryzen 1st and 2nd Generation/ Ryzen™ with Radeon™ Vega Graphics/ Athlon™ with Radeon™ Vega Graphics and A-series / Athlon™ X4 Processors for Socket AM4.

    Therefore, 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs also work on X470 and B450 motherboards.

  56. Evan Morgan says:

    @1:33 it shows compatibility w/ Cooler Master products, but thus far I have been unable to figure out how to control the RGB fans (3 of them) in my Cooler Master MB500 TUF case. The fans are on, and the LED's are lit, but they're only one color, and I am unable to change the colors, either with the included controller, or through the mobo . . . help?

  57. MSori086 says:

    Hi, this mobo will be compatible with next gen Ryzen?. Support Addressable RGB?, and 3600 ram?

  58. Тайным фейком об тейбл says:

    Very potancevalnaja mother. One touch – GREAT BOObST.

  59. Some Random Guy says:

    It’s work with 3rd gen Ryzen btw

  60. Cliffy N Jovelyn says:

    STUTTERING AND FREEZING ISSUE: Since no one has figured this out DO NOT USE the RGB headers on this board to connect any lights etc, I tried everything including tearing my hair out swapping parts out etc and win10 settings, voltages you name it! Unplugged the rgb lights from the board and like magic all the stuttering went away. This is a similar problem to some asrock and gigabyte boards so makes sense. MSI should really fix this issue though or warn customers that not all rgb lights play nice with the onboard headers!!!

  61. Catalin csw says:
