The proprietary MSI Gaming App is only used with the manufacturer’s motherboards or graphics cards. It can adjust the backlight and rotational speed of the graphics card fans, improve the overall system performance and configure the macro.
This article will show you how to use the MSI Gaming App. All MSI software is compatible with Windows 10. Many users do not even know what this program is. Some of its functions depend on the version of the application and your components.
How to use the MSI Gaming App
Setting color filters
The Eye Rest function will optimize the image on your monitor. You can simply reduce the blue to protect your eyes. Especially noticeable on LED backlit screens. Well, or use other pre-installed profiles.
|Eye rest||reduces only blue color to protect eyes|

Switch all color profiles in turn. Choose the one that suits you best. Depending on the tasks. In the latter, you can already customize the gamma, contrast, color balance. To return everything to default, you just need to click the Default button .
Processor power management
Frequency monitoring is displayed depending on the accessories. For example, only with the MSI B450 Gaming Plus MAX motherboard, the operating frequency of the Ryzen 5 3600 processor is displayed. If you have video cards from this manufacturer, you can monitor its frequencies.
- OC Mode – apply automatic overclocking to the frequencies of the processor and video card.
- Gaming Mode – apply turbo frequency to the CPU and GPU.
- Silent Mode – Silent mode returns operating frequencies to default values.
Like Game Boost in MSI dragon Center , OC Mode can instantly boost frequencies. For testing, I activated it and rebooted the computer. The base frequency of the Ryzen 5 3600 processor from 3.6 GHz has risen to the coveted 4.2 GHz.
