MSI has announced their new X99A GAMING Pro Carbon Motherboard, which features RGB illumination and is the first MSI motherboard to include a motherboard RGB LED header. 

This new motherboard is easily the best RGB motherboard from MSI yet, allowing users to synchronise your system's RGB LED strips using your motherboards RGB LED strip header and the motherboard itself comes with a neutral white and black colour scheme, which allows users to use whatever colour they wish without any clashing colours. 

The RGB LEDs on the motherboard, or connected to it with the RGB LED header, can be controlled by you PC with MSI's Mystic LED app or by your phone with MSI's Mystic Light mobile app. 17 different effects can be used with your LEDs or you can use them with a static colour of your choosing.

Being a new X99 motherboard the MSI X99A Gaming Pro Carbon features everything that you would expect from a modern high-end motherboard, with U.2 and M.2 NVMe SSD support, SATA Express Support, 10 total SATA ports and support for USB 3.1 and USB Type C.

On the Audio side, this new motherboard uses MSI's new 8-Channel 7.1 HD audio with MSI Audio Boost 3, offering a better audio experience than with standard lower-end motherboards.

What the X99A offers in not just an improvement in aesthetics but a greatly updated feature set over their older X99 offerings, being the second motherboard manufacturer to integrate RGB LED control into their own motherboards directly. 

At this time, we do not have the pricing information or the release date of this motherboard.

Okay then... Since it looks like you can have any 2 colours you want and not just the standard black/red, I'm digging it.Quote

I know there are customers who hate RGB or prefer not to have it but you have to see it from the other side. There are many people who may love a particular motherboard but because its a certain colour they just don't buy it regardless how much they like the spec/performance/price on offer. So these newer boards come in a more neutral all-black aesthetic to stop this from happening and keep those people happy.. and the RGBs for those who want a particular theme for their new PC.

It makes more sense from a manufacturer perspective instead of having different colours of the same board available or supplying decals in the box. RGB's are the solution.Quote

There's got to be a market for it no doubt. I really like that they've gone down the external header control for case lighting. I could never get my afterburner app to work properly (was a few years ago now) so hopefully the app or software control is solid.

I really like the look of this - not the rainbow on the top of the post but the other pics I've seen. I'd go a nice subtle white or blue led.Quote

Aye that pictures is a "rainbow" effect. We have another 16 effects to choose from... or just static colours.

We include an extension cable for external case lighting too in the box. I know I've had issues using the HUE+ when doing cable management and the cables not reaching where I'd like. The extension should solve that and make it easier in bigger cases.Quote
