    Hi everybody :
    I'm considering the MSI H110M-A Pro M2 Motherboard for my next build. I looked on newegg.com for compatible RAM, but most of the RAM chips list for the Z170 platform. Even though they do have 288 pins. I checked on the MSI website, but it didn't give enough information. Just the DDR4-2133 RAM chips. The other identifier would be the PC4-XXXXX number. I'm not sure where else to check. Thanks..........garystan

    It looks to me that on the msi website, they give you exact brand name and part#

    Just my opinion however if you are going to do anything other than a very basic build, I would not purchase that board. You do understand that motherboard is already over 2yr old and two generations behind current tech, correct?

    I didn't realize that board was that old. How DO you tell if a board is old (or new)? Thanks for the advice. I was doing a parts list for a friend. His PC is incredibly slow. Thanks. garystan

    I just did a search on the H110 Chipset. The specs shown here state that this board DOESN'T have PCIE x16............geesh.......................I'm beginning to see what you mean. Back to motherboard shopping. Thanks....garystan

    You gotta be kidding... just read its spec again. It clearly has a PCIe Gen3 x16 slot and what's better, it's a steel reinforced slot! crjdriver's gonna be happy to see that :D
