The MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon is one of the more premium motherboards in MSI’s X370 lineup. The X370 Gaming Pro Carbon is one of MSI's top Performance series motherboards for the X370 chipset. It offers pretty aesthetics and top-notch features that you might not find on MSI's lower-end X370 and B350 motherboards such as dual M.2 slots.
Today, we are going to look at and review the MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard. It’s significantly cheaper compared to the X370 XPower Gaming Titanium; it has the essential features that most gamers or professionals need; and it has RGB lighting! MSI's X370 GAMING PRO CARBON's color theme is a popular one, black with hints of silver and white, and allows easy matching. It has many integrated RGB LEDs, and you can change the motherboard's color theme to match that of the rest of your system, and that is one reason it's a popular motherboard.
The Gaming Pro Carbon is one of MSI’s current flagship products, with a broad range of features and support for AMD’s barnstorming range of Ryzen chips. MSI’s board is one of the most striking I’ve seen for a couple of reasons. Its carbon-fibre PCB, heatsinks and IO shroud make it look darker than most, but it creates great contrast with the RGB LEDs and shiny steel slots to come to the fore.
The MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard offers a sweet spot for those who are looking for an X370 AM4 motherboard that is feature rich, fully capable and is built with the essentials without spending too much on a motherboard. This motherboard features an all-black design with matte finish, and silver / RGB highlights making it compatible with most color scheme.
The Gaming Pro Carbon features AMD’s latest X370 chipset, meaning it supports both AMD CrossFireX and NVIDIA SLI for multiple graphics card configuration. It basically supports AMD’s new Ryzen processor and (upcoming) 7th generation A-series / Athlon processors for socket AM4. AMD has also announced that the socket AM4 will be around for quite some time, this means future AMD processors using socket AM4 may be compatible with this motherboard. No need to change the entire system, only the processor when you plan to upgrade in the future. At least that’s the idea.
- Supports AMD Ryzen series processors and 7th Gen A-series / Athlon processors for socket AM4
- DDR4 Boost with Steel Armor: Give your DDR4 memory a performance boost

The features are extensive, the aesthetics are somewhat restrained but still edgy and the performance is exactly what we expected from an enthusiast product. X370 chipset is the one you should get if you plan on overclocking your Ryzen processor. All Ryzen processors are unlocked and can be overclocked using an X370 motherboard. The MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard is the cheapest and most reliable X370 chipset currently on the market with excellent support for overclocking and several current generation technologies.
