MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC Review

Packaging & First Look
Our box arrived looking a little worse for wear but this isn’t indicative of how an MSI motherboard would generally arrive.
The front of the packaging shows the carbon theme, as well as a hint towards the RGB aspects. We also see a Performance Gaming logo, with the 5 stars underneath.

The reverse side is packed full of information, showing off the RGB Mystic Light, BIOS Flashback+, Type C USB and other important features.

Bundled with the motherboard is a thick User Guide, a pair of SATA cables, an RGB extension cable, a couple of antennas for the WiFi on the rear IO. There’s also a spare M.2 screw which comes into play if you need to remove the M.2 heatsink. The labelled rear IO shield is also included, as well as a sheet of labels, to help tidy up your rig with labels on SATA cables etc.

The monochrome theme on the MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC looks brilliant, with a grey lined pattern spreading across the board in various directions. The carbon fibre sections on the heatsinks also looks fantastic. We’ll see how it looks with the RGB lighting cranked up, but for now we’re very pleased with the overall aesthetics.
