GAMING PRO CARBON AC arrives in a well-designed box which is in keeping with previous motherboard releases of the GAMING PRO series in the past. On the front of this box we’re left in no doubt that our motherboard is designed for gamers as, along with its name, this board sits within the performance gaming section of MSI’s portfolio.
Inside the box there are an assortment of included accessories which include:
• User Manual
• Quick Start Guide
• Register Leaflet
• Driver CD
• Rear IO Shield
• SLI HB Bridge
• Dual-band Wireless-AC 8265 Card w/ two antennas
• 4x SATA Cables
• Corsair Link Cable
• RGB lighting cables
The theme of GAMING PRO CARBON AC will come as no surprise if you’ve been observing MSI’s releases under the recent HEDT platforms. Our motherboard adopts a simple design with modest styling. Black and silver are the two primary tones being used – since they are both neutral, other components will pair up nicely. Like many of the motherboards being unveiled this year, there is very little to separate or distinguish this design from another. Depending on your point of view this could be deemed good, or bad.
GAMING PRO CARBON AC conforms to the ATX form factor and therefore will install into most mid-tower cases.
