USB Speed Up is here to help out!


With the introduction of our new X99, Z170 CARBON & TITANIUM motherboards, we also released USB Speed Up. 
This great little tool is very simple to use and automatically detects USB devices connected to the system and when enabled can provide up to 30% of an increase in USB performance, saving a lot of time when transferring data.

USB Speed Up works on all MSI X99 and Z170 and any USB storage device, no matter USB 2.0, USB 3.0 or USB 3.1.
