The MSI H170 PC MATE ATX Motherboard features an H170 express chipset along with an LGA1151 socket that supports Intel's 6th-generation of Skylake processors. This chipset along with the four DIMM slots enable the motherboard to handle up to 64GB of DDR4 2133 MHz memory modules. MSI has built this motherboard to be compatible with various types of drives. The six SATA III connectors are designed for your existing storage and optical drives. With a single SATA express port, you can install a drive that has a SATA or PCI interface. Another PCI-based connection is the M.2 slot, which utilizes multiple PCI lanes to provide a bandwidth of 32 Gb/s. For external devices, this motherboard comes with four USB 3.0 ports as well as two USB 3.1 Type-A ports with speeds up to 10 Gb/s.

The H170 PC Mate motherboard delivers visuals to your monitor with integrated Intel graphics and the HDMI, DVI-D, and VGA ports. For a gaming build, two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots let you install dedicated graphics cards linked with AMD CrossFire technology. There are also three PCIe 3.0 x1 and two PCI slots for supporting expansion cards. To complete the multimedia experience, the Realtek ALC887 audio chipset along with three audio jacks provide sounds to your speakers. Aside from these features, the motherboard comes with two PS/2 ports as well as a Realtek RTL8111H Gigabit Ethernet LAN controller.

DDR4 Technology
MSI introduces DDR4 Boost technology with optimized traces and fully isolated memory circuitry. This design ensures the memory signals stay pure for optimal performance and stability.
Storage Expansion
SATA Express offers a bandwidth of up to 16 Gb/s utilizing PCI Express. For faster data transfers, the Turbo M.2 slot delivers speeds up to 32 Gb/s, which is five times faster than a SATA III connection. With a PCI x4 M.2 SSD, the system will boot up nearly instantaneously and your applications will run faster. MSI has an optional U.2 host card adapter for the M.2 slot, so the motherboard can support 2.5" SSDs using the U.2 connector. Moreover, a Redriver chip is added to increase the data transfer speed.
Click BIOS
MSI Click BIOS is optimized for Windows 10. You can control your system in two modes: EZ mode provides frequently used settings and functions, while Advanced mode offers detailed settings and fine-tuning options to boost your system's performance. It's also easy-to-use and has high-resolution multi language scalable fonts as well as advanced overclocking options.
Networking
The integrated Gigabit Ethernet adapter is optimized with Network Genie. This software program allows you to change the application's traffic priority to improve networking performance. You can use it for cloud computing and data syncing.
M-Cloud
MSI gives you M-Cloud that lets you access your files on the system while you're away. It offers a user-friendly interface to build and maintain your personal cloud. Furthermore, it can also turn your PC into an access point.
Military Class 4 Components
  • Dark Choke - uses a special core design that allows it to run at lower temperatures with higher capacity and better power efficiency and stability
  • Solid Caps - are made with an aluminum core design as well as provide lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) and a 10-year lifespan
Guard Pro
MSI has built the PCB with humidity protection, which reduces its moisture absorption to help prevent conductive anodic filament. For key components, they have passed military testing to ensure stable operation in a harsh environment. With carefully selected materials, multiple PCB layers, and shielding, you get circuit protection for this motherboard. MSI has also protected the I/O ports against Electro Static Discharge. In addition, the motherboard meets FCC regulations and produces less Electromagnetic Interference than other motherboards.
EZ Debug LED
The EZ Debug LED features three LED lights to indicate CPU, memory, and VGA operation when you boot up your system. These lights help you determine which part needs replacement when the system does not function properly.
CPU Overvoltage Protection
A red LED light near the 24-pin power connection lets you know that protection is activated to prevent overvoltage and short-circuit damage of the CPU and other components.
Multiple Graphics Support
This motherboard comes with two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots and supports AMD CrossFire. With two graphics cards linked, you can enjoy detailed graphics with fast frame rates.
MSI VGA Armor
With increased size and weight of high-end graphics cards, the PCI Express slots have been strengthened by using more solder points to make sure you never have to worry about breaking off any of the slots.
Total Fan Control
Total Fan Control gives you complete control of all your connected fans through an easy-to-use interface. With fans connected to the motherboard's 4-pin fan headers, you can monitor the fan's speeds in real time. This program offers profiles and logs the speed of the fans. It also displays the voltage and temperature of your components.
WHQL Certified
This motherboard has been certified for use with Windows 8, 8.1, and 10. This ensures compatibility and a worry-free user experience when using either operating system.
Audio Boost
With premium audio components, this motherboard offers clear sound and music through 6-channel audio or high impendence headphones. This motherboard comes with 5.1 audio jacks and Chemi-Con audio capacitors as well as an isolated audio PCB and a front dedicated headphone out connector.
USB 3.1

  • Up to 2 x faster than USB 3.0
  • Up to 20 x faster than USB 2.0
  • Up to 10 Gb/s data transfer bandwidth
  • Boost the transfer rate between your PC and peripherals
USB 3.0 Connectivity
This motherboard comes with two USB 3.0 headers so you can connect your case's front USB 3.0 ports. These ports allow you to enjoy USB speeds without having to use the rear USB ports. The USB 3.0 headers come built with protective ICs that prevent damage caused by Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) from plugging or unplugging USB devices.
Legacy DVI/VGA Video Support
To support professional monitors, TV's, beamers, and other displays, this MSI motherboard features DVI and VGA video outputs.
