Advanced DDR4 Boost
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.
An added XMP LED highlights an active Extreme Memory Profile for the best memory speed and stability setting.

This motherboard supports the latest LGA 1151 Skylake CPUs out of the box. I installed a i7 6770 in mine and it works fantastic, paired with a set of PNY Anarchy 2133Mhz RAM. Games like a champ, runs cool and quiet, nearly as fast, if not faster than my previous PC, which was a watercooled, overclocked full ATX AMD FX8350 system. This board also supports overclocking, although I have not attempted it and plan NOT to. But the options are there. RAM settings can also be customized. Be weary, though, this isn't a full ATX and such, has smaller heat dissipation capabilities for overclocking.
Versus the cheaper models, this version has two system fans plugs, both with 4 pin connectors. The motherboard also has tiny LEDs, including on the backside of the motherboard, which look nice in a windowed case. Overall, this is a great motherboard for the money. This has everything you will ever need to do serious gaming on a Micro ATX build. My one and only complaint; I wish the SATA connectors were all side-connectors instead of top-down. Two of them are, but four of them are not. This makes things very cramped for MIcro ATX builds.
Overall, great motherboard. Feel free to ask any me questions about building a Micro ATX PC.

This motherboard is still running great. I have had zero problems with it, still boots fast, and the gaming is great. I started getting back intyo music production and recently plugged several USB devices into this, including Guitar Rig 5 and a mixerboard. I've had zero problems with them with this motherboard. So it makes a good build for music producers as well. Gaming wise, I've been playing a lot of Overwatch on this build and the game runs great in 1080p maxed out with the hardware listed above. I also had a chance to try the mouse that came with this; an MSI Interceptor DS-B1 gaming mouse that came with the B150 model of this motherboard. I have to say, the mouse is REALLY good. It's got a good feel, it plays well with FPS games including CS:GO. It's also go on-the-fly sensitivity adjustment. Unfortunately it's a budget mouse; the DPI is capped at 1,600 and you immediately notice the difference going back to a high-end mouse. There is also no software like other higher-end mouses have, so no programming buttons, adjusting the sensitivity, polling rate, DPI, or other settings on the mouse. Still, I was mildly impressed by the mouse, it makes a good spare. I went back to my regular mouse, which is currently a Steel Series Sensei. I have owned Razer and Logitech mice's in the past.
Setting up and installing OS on this drive works fine. So you have better hope that your OS is running smoothly for the rest of your life while using this motherboard or if when you need to go to restore your OS on the M.2 from another drive then you're not going to be able to find it in Windows or DOS.
This is my first MSI board and it will be my last.
1. dual channel ram doesn’t work, I can only use DIMM 3 and 4, (2 and 4 , which is the recommended pair, doesn’t work). It didn’t works from day one, but I was too lazy to unscrew everything and return it.
2. not enough power pins for 4 fans. I can onky see 3. this is a minor thing though.
I have had no issues running linux with this msi board
