MSI CSM-B150M overview

  • 1Description

The CSM-B150M PRO-VHL LGA1151 mATX Motherboard from MSI features an LGA1151 socket along with an Intel B150 chipset to support Intel's 6th-generation of Skylake processors. It comes with two DIMM slots that can utilize up to 32GB of DDR4 2133 MHz RAM modules. With integrated Intel graphics support, this motherboard delivers 4K visuals to your monitor through its HDMI port. MSI also has outfitted this motherboard with VGA, parallel, and serial ports to support legacy devices. Armed with these features, you can build a computer that is designed for your home or workplace.

The CSM-B150M is equipped with a single PCIe 3.0 x16 slot that supports a dedicated graphics card so it can quickly render 3D visuals. Aside from graphics, a Realtek ALC887 audio processor provides 8-channel sounds through the three audio ports. This motherboard sports two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, and two PS/2 ports to access your external peripherals. For 2.5", 3.5", and 5.25" drive support, it comes equipped with six SATA III connectors. To access the Internet, a Gigabit Ethernet controller is onboard. It also has a PCIe 3.0 x1 slot and a PCI slot so you can create a versatile system.

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 LGA1151 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.
DDR4 Memory
MSI has designed this motherboard with optimized trace paths and isolated memory circuitry to help ensure the DDR4 memory signals stay pure.
Protection
MSI has provided circuit protection for this motherboard by outfitting it with dark chokes, solid 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, the PCI Express slots have more reinforced solder points that help prevent damage to the slot. 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
With premium audio components, this motherboard offers studio grade sound by delivering clear sound and music through 8-channel HD audio or high impendence headphones. This motherboard comes with three audio jacks, Chemi-Con audio capacitors, and separated audio layers as well as an isolated audio PCB, anti-popcorn noise technology, and one front dedicated headphone out connector.
Software Package
  • Click BIOS - tools to fully protect and optimize your system
  • Network Genie - changes the applications' traffic priority
  • M-Cloud - a convenient and secure way of saving personal files in the cloud
  • Total Fan Control - monitor temperatures in real time and gives you complete control of all your fans connected to the motherboard's 4-pin fan headers
  • Intel Small Business Basic - improves data security, maximizes employee productivity, and boosts system performance
