The MSI B150 PC Mate ATX Motherboard features an LGA1151 socket that is compatible with 6th-generation Skylake Intel processors. It comes with four DIMM slots, so you can build a Windows system with up to 64GB of DDR4 ECC memory modules. For graphics, it supports Intel's integrated graphics and offers two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots for dedicated graphics cards linked via AMD CrossFire technology. To complete the multimedia experience, Realtek ALC887 and three audio jacks immerse you in sounds with optional headphones and speakers. The B150 PC Mate comes with six SATA III connectors as well as a single SATA Express and M.2 slot to handle optical drives and various storage drives including slim-form factor M.2 SSDs to 3.5" hard drives.
MSI has equipped this motherboard with a Realtek RTL8111H Gigabit LAN controller that delivers reliable and fast Internet access. For connecting your peripherals, it sports two PS/2, four USB 3.0, and two USB 2.0 ports as well as an HDMI, DVI-D, and VGA port. In addition to the PCIe 3.0 x16 slots, it provides three PCIe 3.0 x1 and two PCI slots to let you expand the system's capabilities. MSI also offers software tools along with hardware features so you can enhance the performance of your components and help diagnosis if you encounter a problem.
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.
SATA Express offers a bandwidth of up to 16 Gb/s utilizing PCI Express. The single SATA-based M.2 slot doesn't need any power or data cables and supports small footprint M.2 SSDs.
The UEFI BIOS features M-Flash for easy BIOS flashing, advanced data protection, system security, and tools to fully protect and optimize the system. Through smart design and optimizations for Windows 10, Click BIOS is faster when compared to other versions. By reducing the use of graphics in the UEFI shell, it boots faster, reacts faster, and adds a smooth experience when changing settings. Smart categorizing of functions and settings are also included with Click BIOS.
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.
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
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.
Supports Intel Small Business Basics
Intel SBB is a unique, customization solution that helps improve small businesses data security, maximizes employee productivity, and boosts the computers' performance. An intuitive interface improves security and productivity by including USB blocker, screen sharing, file sharing, and chat.
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.
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, separated audio layers, and Chemi-Con audio capacitors as well as an isolated audio PCB, anti-popcorn noise technology, and a front dedicated headphone out connector.
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.
