MSI B150M overview

  • 1Description

Built with performance and business solutions in mind, the B150M PRO-VDH LGA 1151 Micro-ATX Motherboard from MSI is designed to fit in cases that support a micro-ATX form factor. This 9.3 x 9.0" motherboard supports Intel 6th Generation Core i7, i5, i3, Pentium, and Celeron processors, the LGA 1151 socket, and the Intel B150 chipset.

The micro-ATX form factor of the B150M PRO-VDH has four DIMM slots that are able to support up to 64GB of dual-channel unbuffered ECC memory, plus Intel Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory modules. The supported memory speed is 2133 MHz and there are also a total of six SATA III 6 Gb/s ports and one SATA Express port (PCI3 3.0 x2), that is backward compatible with SATA. Additionally, there is one PCIe 3.0 x16 slot and two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots. USB 3.0 Type-A connectivity is integrated with four ports on the back panel and two more ports available through the internal USB connector, and there are also two USB 2.0 Type-A ports on the back panel, with an additional four ports available through the internal USB connector. Using the Realtek ALC887 audio codec, this motherboard can support 7.1-channel (7 speakers + 1 subwoofer) HD audio, and network connectivity is achieved using Realtek's RTL8111H Gigabit LAN controller.

Graphically, the B150M PRO-VDH has one HDMI port that supports a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 @ 24 Hz or 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz, one DVI-D port that supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz, and one VGA port that supports a maximum resolution of 2048 x 1536 @ 50 Hz, 2048 x 1280 @ 60 Hz, or 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz.

The B150M PRO-VDH LGA 1151 Micro-ATX Motherboard has been designed with features such as M-Cloud, Audio Boost, Total Fan Control, reinforced PCIe slots, CPU overvoltage protection, Military Class 4 components, humidity protection, high temperature protection, circuit protection, ESD protection, EMI protection, and more. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.

General Features

Productivity

Memory Performance and Stability
With traditional memory design, the memory signals are often distorted by electromagnetic signals from other components, making the system perform slower or become unstable. 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.
Fast Storage with SATA Express
SATA Express offers a solution in high speed storage through PCI Express, providing more bandwidth for the SSDs up to 16 Gb/s.
CLICK BIOS 5
Explore the improved CLICK BIOS 5 and use it to tune your system for increased performance. MSI CLICK BIOS 5 is the next generation UEFI BIOS with optimizations for Windows 10. Control your system in two modes: EZ mode, for the most used settings and functions, and Advanced mode for more detailed settings and fine-tuning options to boost your system's performance.
M-Cloud
MSI's M-Cloud is a convenient and secure way of saving personal files in the cloud. M-Cloud simplifies complicated settings with a user friendly interface and is easy to learn. Build and maintain your personal cloud with ease. M-Cloud can also turn your PC into an Access Point. You can easily share a wireless network or internet signal to other devices through just a few simple steps.

Reliability

Dark Choke
Dark Choke uses a special core design that allows it to run at a lower temperature with higher capacity and better power efficiency and stability.
Solid CAP
With their aluminum core design and Japanese made quality, Solid CAPs are made for high-end motherboards. Not only do Solid CAPs provide lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR), but also work firmly for at least 10 years.
Humidity Protection
Reduction in moisture absorption helps prevent "Conductive Anodic Filament." Untreated PCB's can have 10x higher failure rate.
High Temperature Protection
All key components used in MSI motherboards have all passed military testing, helping to ensure stable operation in the harshest environments.
Circuit Protection
Carefully selected materials, multiple PCB layers, and shielding result in strong circuit protection for MSI motherboards.
ESD Protection
Each and every I/O port is protected against the hazards of Electro Static Discharge.
EMI Protection
All MSI motherboards comply with strict American FCC regulations and help reduce the impact of Electromagnetic Interference
EZ Debug LED
MSI's EZ Debug LED is an easy troubleshooting tool using three LEDs to indicate CPU / Memory / VGA operation every time you boot up your system. Run into trouble? Use the LEDs to easily identify the source of your problem and get back into operation quickly.
Enhanced CPU Overvoltage Protection
Onboard overvoltage protection helps prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage of the CPU and other components. A red LED near the 24-pin CPU power connector let you know that overvoltage protection is activated for easier troubleshooting.
VGA Armor: Reinforced PCI Express Slot
With the increased size and weight of modern high end graphics cards, traditional PCI Express slots often show signs of bending or even breaking. Meet VGA Armor, strengthened PCI Express slots 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 fans connected to the motherboard, through an easy to use interface.
  • Full control of fans through 4-pin fan headers
  • Real-time monitor fan speeds & temperatures
  • Intuitive, easy to use application design
  • Set profiles
  • Log fan speed, voltage, and temperature status
  • Intel Small Business Advantage
    Intel SBB is a unique, customizable solution that helps improve small businesses data security, maximizes employee productivity, and boosts overall office computers' performance. It is a simple and intuitive interface which improves security and productivity - With USB blocker, screen sharing, file sharing, and chat.
    WHQL Certified, Windows 10 Ready
    Benefit from great compatibility and a worry-free user experience when using Microsoft Windows 8 / 8.1 or Windows 10 with MSI PRO Series motherboards. MSI received official Microsoft Windows 10 WHQL certification. With a true testament to compatibility and performance, the MSI R&D team ensures a worry-free experience when using the latest version of Microsoft Windows on virtually any MSI PRO Series motherboard.
