MSI Announces The H81M-E35 V2 Motherboard

MSI has released the H81M-E35 V2 motherboard, an M-ATX board featuring a LGA 1150 socket and support for Intel’s Haswell processors. The main feature of this motherboard is its Military Class 4 components, having Humidity Protectionm ESD Protection EMI Protection and High Temperature Protection.

Looking at the motherboard’s technical specs, we can see it has support for the latest 4th generation Intel core (i3, i5, i7), including Pentium and Celeron processors. However, the motherboard has entry-level features due to its two DIMM RAM sockets and the presence of only one PCIe socket. The DDR3 RAM modules can work in dual channel with up to 1600 MHz frequency. Also take into account that its PCIe is 2.0, not 3.0.

Other features consist of two PCIe x1 and one PCI slot for additional components such as NICs, wireless adapters, and so on. In terms of SATA connectors, it has two SATA-III and two SATA-II ports which the user can use to easily install a RAID HDD and SSD configuration using the SATA-III and other peripheral devices such as optical drives with the help of the SATA-II ports.

The back of the motherboard reveals two PS/2 for keyboard and mouse peripherals, although very few keyboards and mice use the PS/2 technology nowadays. The USB configuration is made out of four USB 3.0 ports (with additional support for two more in the front) and two USB 2.0 ports, having the possibility of adding an extra four on the front.

The motherboards NIC is 10/100/1000 Mbps compatible and is controlled by a Realtek RTL8111G chip, while we can also find a Realtek ALC887 chip capable of 7.1 channel support on the motherboard as well. And with an Intel HD graphics processor, the H81M-E35 V2 also provides one HDMI, one DVI and one VGA port having support for 4K UHD display.

MSI is providing the OC Genie 4 for a quick 1 second overclock feature, along with its Command Center tool and Click Bios 4 for easy PC customization and Fast Boot for a quick startup process.

All in all, the MSI H81M-E35 V2 is a handy motherboard, though it is not suited for gaming or overclocking purposes. The price has yet to be announced, though we are expecting it to hit the shelves at a price tag of less than $100.
