Fantastic midrange motherboard!
By M. Saxon
Just built an i5-7500/Win 10 system and I have to say the MSI B250 Mortar motherboard is a solid choice. The complete listing of parts are shown below. Everything fired up the moment I turned on the power. I'm usually a fan of Gigabyte motherboards but after using MSI on another budget build for my parents, I decided to give this midrange board a shot. Couldn't be happier with the performance and options. Granted, I'm not a gamer so I don't use the PCI-E slots but I'm sure they will work for those who do game. I wanted to use a motherboard with a M.2 slot for my OS drive. The Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB M.2 was immediately recognized by the mobo and OS. It's a snappy 20 sec boot up once the OS was installed. I like the MSI Control Center and Live Update software it comes with. It just makes it easy to keep the drivers up to date. The Control Center has a ton of info on your system (temps, CPU core speeds, fan control, etc). I don't overclock so I don't need to tweak anything but the software has the ability to do so. The system has been running for 3 weeks now and so far so good. I will update my review if I run into any snags. If you are looking for higher performance, then I suggest going with the 270 chipset. Cheers!

MSI Does It Again!!

MSI does it again! This is one fantastic motherboard. It has all the perks of a higher priced motherboard, but without compromising looks and quality.

A stylish motherboard with no extra frills and a robust BIOS
By Eduardo P.
I bought this as part of a new computer build I was making. As a newcomer, I was afraid of how everything would turn out, but this motherboard was very easy to work with. Everything was properly labelled and the motherboard itself was very sturdy, even as I was plugging and unplugging things off of it.
The design itself is very good for what is supposed to be a budget motherboard, featuring a few red LEDS peppered around various areas (but unfortunately it doesn't light up along the red lines like I originally thought it would.
The BIOS is also very easy to work with, even having mouse support! Fortunately, I didn't need to change anything since it seemed like my motherboard defaulted to the most optimal settings, so that's very handy.
Overall, I'm very satisfied with this motherboard. MSI really knocked it out with this one. I'd easily recommend this for anyone going for any Kaby Lake processor, newcomers and veterans alike.
