Special features include Killer DoubleShot-X3 Pro, Audio Boost 3 PRO, Nahimic sound technology, Turbo M.2 connectivity and 2X Faster USB 3.1 Type-A and Type-C. Curiously, MSI also opted to include a LGA2036 "Turbo Socket" on the motherboard. This is the same story as the ASUS OC Socket that was making the rounds last year, MSI claims the extra pins remove all limits to provide a better overclocking experience. These pins are normally used during the development and testing phase of Intel's CPUs but the motherboard makers claim overclockers can achieve higher records with these turbo sockets.
