Another high-end motherboard for Ryzen.
None of MSI's X370-chipset motherboards look boring by any stretch, though its X370 Krait Gaming stands out from the pack with a aggressive black and white color scheme. It also features white LED lighting.
Of course, looks will only get you so far. The X370 Krait Gaming boasts an 8+2 VRM design and has four DIMM slots supporting up to 64GB of DDR4 memory at 3,200MHz or higher (via overclocking).
On the PCI-Express front, it has two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots (x8/x8), a PCIe 2.0 x16 slot, and three PCIe 2.0 x1 slots.
For storage duties, users have access to six SATA 6Gbps ports with RAID 0/1/10 support. There is also an M.2 slot for installing one of those gum stick-sized SSDs.
Users also get a variety of external connectivity options, including DVI-D and HDMI output, two USB 2.0 Type-A ports, four USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-A ports, a USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-A port, a USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C port, and a Gigabit LAN port, plus audio connectors.
There is no word yet on when the X370 Krait Gaming will be available or for how much, though as a point of reference, MSI's similarly spec'd X3780 Gaming Pro Carbon streets for around $180.
