The B450 Tomahawk AM4 ATX Motherboard from MSI is built on the AMD B450 chipset, supporting Ryzen processors with an AM4 socket. It has four memory slots that can hold up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM running at up to 3466 MHz when overclocked. For storage, it's equipped with six SATA III ports and a single M.2 slot, which utilizes the PCIe 3.0 x4 interface for speeds of up to 32 Gb/s when used with an appropriate drive. While it's equipped with DVI-D and HDMI outputs for integrated graphics, this motherboard also has one PCIe 3.0 x16 slot for a graphics card as well as a PCIe 2.0 x16 and two PCIe 2.0 x1 slots for other PCIe-based hardware. Other notable integrated features include Realtek ALC892 7.1-channel HD audio, Realtek 8111H Gigabit LAN, and MSI Mystic Light RGB lighting.

MSI Mystic Light RGB Lighting
The right side of this motherboard features built-in LED lighting. Choose from over a million colors and a variety of lighting effects to fit your style. You can also sync it with other MSI Mystic Light-compatible hardware and peripherals to complete your build.
Cooling
For cooling, this motherboard has six fan headers that support both DC and PWM modes, which allow you to manually or automatically adjust speeds within BIOS or a third-party software, so you can find your preferred balance between cooling and noise.
Storage
Aside from standard SATA ports, the B450 Tomahawk also has a single M.2 slot, which is PCIe 3.0 x4 compatible for speeds of up to 32 Gb/s when used with an appropriate drive. Additionally, you can use MSI X-Boost and AMD STOREMI to help optimize your drives' storage and performance.
Audio
MSI Audio Boost consists of both hardware and software additions that are designed to provide you with a high-quality listening experience. The left and right channels are built on separate PCB layers, De-Pop Protection prevents loud popping noises, an EMI-shielded audio processor ensure clean stereo and surround sound, and a dedicated headphone amplifier automatically detects the optimal impedance for your headphones. For gaming, Nahimic 3 provides you with virtual surround sound with an in-game overlay that displays where noises are coming from.
Memory
The DDR4 memory slots on this motherboard are built with an optimized memory layout to offer stability, performance, and low power consumption. Additionally, this motherboard supports XMP for enhanced RAM speeds.
