The A320M Gaming Pro can provide sharp visuals, utilizing an integrated APU chipset, to your monitors connected to its HDMI, DVI-D, and VGA ports. To render detailed 3D visuals, you may install a dedicated graphics card to a single PCIe 3.0 x16 slot. There are also two PCIe 2.0 x1 slots to grant your system with extra capabilities. Audio is handled by the built-in Realtek ALC887 processor and three audio jacks. Other ports offered are two USB 2.0 and four USB 3.0 ports as well as an Ethernet port, which lets the system access a wired network at Gigabit speeds.
Customize and set up your own color scheme with RGB Mystic Light Sync. You can select any of the colors from the palette using the MSI Gaming app for smartphones and desktops to match your personal style. This motherboard features LEDs on the back to create a red glow inside your case. For additional lighting inside, a Mystic Light extension header is on board for controlling optional RGB strips, fans, and other gear, without needing a separate RGB controller. Additionally, Mystic Light Sync can also work with select LED-enabled keyboards and mice.
MSI fan headers automatically detect fans running in DC or PWM mode for optimal tuning of fan speeds and quietness. Total Fan Control software is offered so you can take control of your fans and check the system's characteristics in a simplified graphical interface. You can also set up to 4 temperature targets for the CPU and motherboard, which will adjust the fan's speeds automatically.
This board is based on the same exact PCB as the A320M Grenade, but tops it up with slightly more premium black capacitors, a pitch-black PCB (compared to brown on the A320M Grenade) and MSI's signature dragon red color scheme for some of the slots and connectors. The board could be priced slightly above the A320M Grenade. The feature-set of the two boards, however, appears to be identical.
Built in the narrow micro-ATX form-factor, the A320M Gaming Pro draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS power connectors, and conditions it for the SoC using a 6-phase VRM. Expansion slots include one reinforce PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot, and two PCIe gen 2.0 x1. Storage connectivity includes four SATA 6 Gb/s ports, and one 32 Gb/s M.2 slot. USB connectivity includes six 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 ports. 6-channel HD audio (Realtek ALC887 controller) and gigabit Ethernet (Realtek RTL8111H controller) make for the rest of it.
