Now to add the Infinite series to this line-up. The Infinite gaming desktop is inspired by gamers that have a never-ending desire to GAME. To support true gamers we want to give them a PC to start gaming but also one for the future. One with Infinite possibilities to play the way you want.

The essence of Infinite is to provide unprecedented power, in a large variety of prebuilt hardware configurations. Because every component is thoughtfully working together, it gets you the entire performance you need for your infinite gaming sessions.
Gaming never stops, the only challenge is to stay awake.
The Infinite series comes in two models at this moment. The MSI Infinite and MSI Infinite A. Let us look at five of the main differences between these two models.

The Infinite series models are using different Intel chipsets. These chipsets control all kind of functions of the gaming desktop and how many devices you can connect.
Infinite is using H110 chipset
Infinite A is using B250 chipset.
The main difference is in high-speed USB ports, Infinite A has more USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type A ports than Infinite, and the support of Intel Optane which Infinite A supports.
Besides the differences, the Infinite series also shares a lot of great gaming feature. For example:
Silent Storm Cooling 3
To get outstanding performance MSI Gaming Desktops are equipped with an exclusive, smart and powerful cooling system. MSI’s Silent Storm Cooling embraces several separated chambers that individually take care of different components within the system. This unique design makes sure the system’s temperature stays perfectly under control, supporting a cool and silent operation.

Going to a LAN-party, a friend or you just feel like you want to bring your Gaming Desktop anywhere you go? A useful handle situated on the chassis of the case can be used to pick up and carry this gaming beast around from one gaming den to the next.
Best protection for transportation
To protect your most important component of your gaming PC, Gaming Graphics Card, we designed it in a vertical position. This will prevent bending of the card or damage to the PCI-E slot during transport.
