The MSI B150 Gaming M3 LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard comes with two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots as well as an Intel B150 chipset and an LGA 1151 socket so you can build a gaming desktop. This combination of features enables you to create a Windows system running on a 6th-generation Intel processor and up to two graphics cards linked with AMD CrossFire technology. For a non-dedicated graphics build, integrated Intel HD graphics can deliver up to 4K visuals through the motherboard's HDMI and DVI-D ports. There are also four DIMM slots that can accept up to 64GB of DDR4 2133 MHz memory modules.
MSI has equipped this motherboard with a single SATA Express port and an M.2 slot along with six SATA III ports for connecting optical and storage drives. Other ports offered are four USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports as well as a PS/2 combo port. To access a network, a Killer E2400 Gigabit Ethernet port is onboard. Audio is handled by the built-in Realtek ALC1150 processor that delivers 8-channel sounds through the motherboard's six jacks. Furthermore, three PCI slots and two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots allow you to add additional capabilities and ports to this motherboard.
Intel B150 Chipset
The B150 chipset is designed to support Intel's 6th-generation of Skylake processors. It delivers Advanced Host Controller Interface support and low power management of your SATA devices. This chipset natively supports up to six USB 3.0, fourteen USB 2.0, and six SATA III ports as well as PCIe 3.0 technology for faster data retrieval. For audio offload and audio/voice features, it comes with an integrated digital signal processor. Furthermore, it offers various features that help enhance security and productivity.
Intel LGA 1151 Socket
This motherboard supports Intel Core i7/i5/i3/Pentium/Celeron processors in the LGA 1151 package. These processors come with integrated graphics, memory, and PCI-Express controllers to deliver onboard graphics, dual-channel DDR4 memory support, and PCI Express 3.0 lanes for graphics performance.
MSI has designed this motherboard with optimized trace paths and isolated memory circuitry to help ensure the DDR4 memory signals stay pure. Additionally, an XMP LED highlights an active Extreme Memory Profile, which enhances the memory's speed while remaining stable.
MSI has provided circuit protection for this motherboard by outfitting it with Titanium chokes, Dark capacitors, multiple PCB layers, and shielding. For key components, they have passed military testing to ensure stable operation in a harsh environment. MSI has protected all the I/O ports on this motherboard against Electrostatic Discharge damage. In addition, the motherboard meets FCC regulations and produces less Electromagnetic Interference than other motherboards.
With the increased size and weight of high-end graphics cards, MSI has designed the PCIe slots with reinforced soldered points that help strengthen the connection. 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. When the system does not function properly, three LED lights help you determine if the CPU, memory, or graphics need replacement.
Audio Boost 3 with Nahimic Sound Technology
With premium audio components and Nahimic Sound technology, this motherboard offers studio grade sound by delivering clear sound and music through 8-channel HD speakers or high impendence headphones. Audio is enhanced with Nahimic sound technology that offers immersive virtual 7.1 sound. This motherboard comes with six audio jacks, Chemi-Con audio capacitors, dual headphone amplifiers, and separated audio layers as well as an EMI-shielded audio processor, isolated audio PCB, anti-popcorn noise technology, and one front headphone-out connector.
