MSI B360M Mortar Micro-ATX Motherboard Review
Peter Donnell / 12 months ago
The more affordable Intel motherboards are here at last, with the release of H370 and the B360 series. While they don’t offer the overclocking features found on the more expensive Z370 series, they still pack a huge amount of features. For those running a non-overclocking Intel CPU, they could be the best value for money available to you right now.
The B360M comes equipped with a mATX form factor. However, it still packs in many of the features we’ve come to expect from the more expensive Z370 motherboards from MSI. This includes dual M.2 mounts with support for NVMe and Optane. You’ll find Tubo USB 2.1, DDR4 Boost, Gaming LAN, and premium audio hardware.
