(Please refer “CPU Support List” for more information.)
|Chipset||Intel® Z370 Express Chipset|
(Please refer “Memory Support List” for more information.)
* Support for DisplayPort 1.2 version, HDCP 2.2, and HDR.
* Support for HDMI 1.4 version and HDCP 2.2. Maximum shared memory of 1 GB
* For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16 slot.
* The PCIEX8 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIEX16 slot. When the PCIEX8 slot is populated, the PCIEX16 slot operates at up to x8 mode.
* The PCIEX4 slot shares bandwidth with the M2P_32G connector. The PCIEX4 slot operates at up to x2 mode when a PCIe SSD is installed in the M2P_32G connector.
* The PCIEX1_3 slot shares bandwidth with the SATA3 1 connector. The SATA3 1 connector becomes unavailable when the PCIEX1_3 is populated. (All of the PCI Express slots conform to PCI Express 3.0 standard.)

From Hardware BBQ:
I am not very happy to see the MOSFET/VRM heatsink with not many sunk cut-outs. This is what MSI did. More sinks, the better. No metal which is good at heat transfer will help to dissipate heat if it is basically a block of metal. I saw an ECS Z370 motherboard which seems to have more sinks in its MOSFET/VRM sink. At this point, marketable decoration shouldn’t come in the way at all. It may not be a big deal since modern CPUs are more energy efficient, especially Coffee Lake. But it still needs care as overclocking generates heat- on the CPU and its related parts such as the CHOKES and its VRMs. This motherboard has a 5.0 GHz profile which I used. It pushes out a lot of heat. That tiny fan under the rear I/O bracket will barely do a good job. This is important especially when enhanced multicore performance is enabled by default (set to auto is enabled). Many users even overclockers may not observe it. Because the system does not notify the user. Luckily it does not change the settings when you change anything else- such as Intel XMP.[/nextpage][nextpage title=”Purchase Links” ]
