**B Grade** B360M Gaming Plus Intel B360 (Socket 1151) DDR4 Micro-ATX Motherboard
B Grade items may have been used, have damaged packaging, missing accessories or a combination of these (Motherboards may be missing I/O shields).
Some items may have scuff marks or slight scratches but should otherwise be an operable product.
The Intel B360 chipset of the MSI B360 Gaming Plus motherboard is ideal for use with -8000 series Coffee Lake CPUs and offers support for USB 3.1 - without the need for an additional chip. The chipset also natively supports an M.2 slot connected via PCIe for ultra fast NVMe SSDs as well as Intel Optane. Socket 1151 motherboards with the B360 chipset make the perfect foundation for a budget gaming PC or a computer for the home office.

- 2x PCIe (3.0) x16 (x16/x4) & 4x PCIe (3.0) x1
- 1x M.2 (PCIe 3.0 x4) / 5x SATA 6G
- 1x USB 3.1 Type A & Type C
- Total of 4x USB 3.0 and 6x USB 2.0 (internal & external)
- Supports max. 64 GB DDR4-RAM at 2.666 MHz
- MSI Mystic Light & Sync via RGB-LED header
The MSI B360 Gaming Plus in Detail
The MSI B360 Gaming Plus ATX motherboard offers two PCIe x16 slots, one of which offers 16 full lanes of chipset connectivity and the other four. For upgrades and expansion cards the board comes with four PCIe x1 slots. Both PCIe 3.0 x16 slots support AMD's CrossFire technology to allow two graphics cards to be used.
The M.2 slot is connected via PCIe 3.0 lanes and support NVMe protocol and, in combination with a compatible M.2 SSD, this enables a transfer rate of almost 4 GB/s. That is roughly eight times faster than an SSD connected via SATA 6G! Additional drives like SSDs, HDDs and optical drives can be connected using five SATA 3.0 ports. Up to 64 GB of RAM clocked at up 2.666 MHz can be installed in the four DDR4-DIMM slots.
The I/O panel of the MSI B360 Gaming Plus provides two USB 3.1 ports, of which one is the slim Type C port which can be inserted in either orientation. These USB 3.1 ports allow speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s and are twice as fast as older USB 3.0 ports! Additional peripherals can be connected using two USB 3.0- and two USB 2.0 ports.
DVI- and DisplayPort connectors are available for display output from the processor's integrated GPU. The motherboard provides onboard sound by means of six 3,5 mm jacks. In terms of internal connectivity the board comes with a COM port-, TPM- and RGB-LED headers, six fan connectors, a water pump header, two USB 2.0 headers and one USB 3.0 header.
