MSI H170i overview

  • 1Description

The MSI H170I Pro AC LGA1151 Mini-ITX Motherboard features a small-sized form factor that lets you build a compact Windows system. It comes with an LGA1151 socket that supports Intel's 6th-generation of Skylake processors. Armed with an Intel H170 chipset, it allocates the multiple PCI lanes from your CPU to the M.2 and PCIe 3.0 x16 slots. This combination of performance allows this motherboard to offer two DIMM slots, capable of supporting up to 32GB of DDR4 2133 MHz memory modules. MSI has also designed this motherboard with an integrated 802.11ac/Bluetooth 4.2 module for wireless access to the Internet and Bluetooth-enable devices.

With an Intel processor, this motherboard delivers up to 4K visuals through the HDMI and DVI-D ports. It comes equipped with a Realtek ALC887 audio processor that provides 8-channel surround sounds through the three audio jacks. For storage, you can install optical drives, hard drives, and SSDs to its four SATA ports. Additionally, the H170I Pro is outfitted with four USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports as well as a PS/2 combo port and a Gigabit Ethernet jack.

Intel H170 Chipset
The H170 chipset is designed to support Intel's 6th-generation of Skylake processors. It delivers RAID support and six SATA III ports so the system can protect and quickly access data. This chipset natively supports up to six USB 3.0 and fourteen USB 2.0 ports as well as eight PCIe 3.0 lanes for faster data retrieval. For audio offload and audio/voice features, it comes with an integrated digital signal processor.
Intel LGA1151 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.
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, 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. If 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 speakers 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 headphone-out connector.
Software Package
  • Click BIOS 5 - provides EZ and Advanced modes to help you boost your system's performance
  • 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
