The H170M ECO mATX Motherboard from MSI is designed with unique ECO hardware and software features so you can build an Intel-based computer that uses less energy than other typical systems. It comes with an Intel H170 chipset and an LGA 1151 socket to support Intel's 6th-generation of Skylake processors. The H170M is equipped with two DDR4 DIMM slots that support up to 32GB of memory. For storage, six SATA III ports allow it to access HDDs, SSDs, and optical drives. With headers that support serial and parallel devices, it is well suited for business and retail environments. Additionally, a VGA port is available to support legacy monitors.

This motherboard can deliver up to 4K visuals to your DVI-D and HDMI-capable monitors by utilizing the processor's integrated graphics. To quickly render 3D graphics, you can install a dedicated graphics card to its single PCIe 3.0 x16 slot. Aside from graphics, the Realtek ALC887 audio processor provides 8-channel sounds through the three audio ports.

MSI has equipped this motherboard with four USB 3.0 ports to connect with your printers, scanners, and digital cameras. For accessing the Internet, a Gigabit Ethernet controller is onboard. Furthermore, two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots allow you to add additional capabilities and ports to this motherboard.

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 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.
ECO Tech Design
MSI has designed this motherboard with unique hardware and software features that enable it to use less power than a 16W light bulb. It comes with ECO Genie that provides immediate energy savings. You can activate these savings through the BIOS or the ECO Center PRO application, which offers ECO, Lounge, and Server modes for different computing scenarios.
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 slot has 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 headphone-out connector.
