Picking the right motherboard when building a PC is essential. While the CPU may be the brains of the build, and a hefty GPU will provide the graphical brawn, it’s the motherboard that ties it all together – and the chipset that the mobo uses determines what processor you can use.
If you’re looking to harness the power of Intel’s latest 13th generation Core processors for your next build, then MSI’s range of B760 motherboards should be your first port of call. From there, you can build out the rest of your PC to make the perfect desktop for your needs.
Each of MSI’s B760 motherboards support both 12th generation and 13th generation Intel Core CPUs, and offer exclusive features, extensive thermal solutions and rock-solid build quality, offering you performance and dependability for pretty much any type of PC you want to build.
These motherboards also feature exclusive MSI technology, such as the powerful MSI Center software, which makes it easy to monitor and update the motherboard and any other MSI peripherals you have, as well as synching RGB lighting effects.
