B360M Bazooka Intel B360 (Socket 1151) DDR4 Micro-ATX Motherboard
The Intel B360 chipset of the MSI B360M BAZOOKA motherboard is designed for use with 8000- series Coffee Lake CPUs from Intel. The chipset natively supports fast NVMe SSDs and Intel Optane via the M.2 slot which is connected via PCIe. Socket 1151 motherboards with the B360 chipset form a great foundation for a budget gaming PC or home office computer.
The Features of the MSI B360M BAZOOKA at a Glance:
- 1x PCIe (3.0) x16 & 2x PCIe (3.0) x1
- 1x M.2 (PCIe 3.0 x4) / 6x SATA 6G
- 4x USB 3.0 Type A & C on I/O panel
- Total of 6x USB 3.0 and 6x USB 2.0 (internal & external)
- Supports max. 64 GB DDR4-RAM at 2.666 MHz
- RGB-LED header for controlling MSI Mystic Light
The MSI B360M BAZOOKA in Detail
The MSI B360M BAZOOKA mATX motherboard offers a PCIe x16 slot which is connected to the chipset via 16 full lanes. For upgrades and expansion cards, the board includes two PCIe x1slots.
The four PCIe 3.0 lanes which are connected to the M.2 slot support the NVMe protocol and this, in combination with a compatible M.2 SSD, enables data transfer rates of almost 4 GB/s. This is approximately eight times faster than an SSD connected over SATA 6G! Additional drives like SSDs, HDDs and optical drives can be connected using six SATA 3.0 ports. A max of 64 GB RAM clocked at up to 2.666 MHz can be installed in the four DDR4-DIMM slots.
The I/O panel of the MSI B360M BAZOOKA comes with four USB 3.0 ports, of which one is the slim Type C port which can be inserted in either orientation. Additional peripheral devices can be connected using two USB 2.0 slots.
One DVI- and HDMI connection is available for display output via the integrated GPU of the processor. For the onboard sound, the motherboardp rovides three 3,5 mm jacks. The internal connections include, among others, a COM Port-, TPM-, Power LED- and Speaker Headers, three fan connectors, two USB 2.0- as well as a USB 3.0 header. RGB strips and RGB fans can be controlled using the RGB-LED header bereit, which can be controlled with the MSI Mystic Light App.
