MSI B250M overview

  • 1Description

The MSI B250M Mortar Arctic LGA1151 mATX Motherboard lets you build a Windows system that sports a 6th- or 7th-generation Intel processor and up to two dedicated graphics cards. The B250M Mortar Arctic features an Intel B250 chipset and an LGA1151 socket to become compatible with Intel's Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, Pentium, and Celeron processors. Regardless of a micro-ATX form factor, it still comes with two PCIe 3.0 x16, two PCIe 3.0 x1, and four DIMM slots. For storage, it offers six SATA interfaces for your 2.5" and 3.5" storage drives as well as an M.2 slot for an ultra-fast SSD. MSI has designed this motherboard with an arctic color theme to better match your components.

MSI has outfitted this motherboard with HDMI, DVI-D, and DisplayPort outputs to deliver detailed visuals to your monitors utilizing integrated Intel graphics. With two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots available, you can install optional graphics cards and link them with AMD CrossFire technology to enable high-performance gaming.

Aside from the slots, the B250M Mortar Arctic motherboard is equipped with an Intel Gigabit Ethernet port along with a Realtek ALC892 audio codec chipset, which immerses you in 7.1-channel sounds through your speakers or headset. Other notable features include four USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, letting the system access printers, scanners, and external storage drives. Moreover, one of the four USB 3.0 ports features a USB Type-C interface, which lets you connect a USB-C cable the first try.

    MSI B250M reviews

    B250M Mortar Arctic LGA1151 mATX Motherboard is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would buy again! I like this motherboard. The thing I like most about it is the color scheme. I liked this motherboard so much that I have decided to buy msi mortor or tomahawk motherboards if I want my pc to look the best. One thing that I did not like is how there is no Dr. Debug. I give it 4/5

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent motherboard for those not overclocking. Look and feel of the motherboard feel solid. Installed i3-7100 cpu, 16gig ddr4 2400 ram, 240gig ssd, and use existing Evga GT7400 video card without any issues. Fast and stable. Will buy again if building another pc for family.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome colors (well performance, too) For a low budget B250M, I didn't expect the performance. We bought it only because of it's sexy color scheme. I expected an average performance, but it delivers above average performance and it's pretty stable board.
