Together with the first Skylake 6th generation processors, Intel also introduced a brand new Z170 chipset. This is the brain of the Z170M MORTAR motherboard. This game model from the prestigious manufacturer MSI is designed for the most demanding users. With its capabilities, it is the ideal choice for building up extremely powerful gaming computers that can be used to play the latest games, but also to work with demanding multimedia content.

Main advantages:

  • Motherboard for powerful Intel Skylake processors
  • Supports the latest DDR4 memory types up to 64 GB
  • Overclocking is incredibly easy with dedicated buttons and applications
  • Modern connectors deliver ultra-fast data transfers
  • Great sound thanks to the integrated sound card using premium components
  • With stylish LED backlighting, you'll excel on every LAN party
  • The provided software will allow you to stream your games easily

Ideal board for those who want the maximum from their PC

The MSI Z170M MORTAR is equipped with the LGA 1151 socket for the latest 14nm Skylake processors, with a superb shield of four DDR4 memory slots minimising electromagnetic noise. They operate at the base frequency of 2,400 MHz, but at the maximum load they reach an impressive 3,600 MHz.

Overclocking is generally very easy. It is helped by the sophisticated design of the entire PCB and the wonderfully crafted Click BIOS 5 with dedicated clocking tools and drivers, including the Game Boost button to instantly boost performance. Because of the extreme system load, all potentially heat-stressed components are cooled by effective passive coolers. This board will simply allow you to go to the very edge of the overclocking, thinking of easily restoring the original settings if required.

On waves of radiant power

Plug in state-of-the-art graphics cards into the PCI Express 3.0 slots in CrossFireX mode. You will enjoy your favourite games in the last pixel. In addition, thanks to the solid steel frame and the increased number of solder joints, the slot itself is extremely robust. You do not have to worry about losing the handles of even the toughest graphics cards when transferring your PC to a LAN party.

To connect the latest generation of SSD, the existing SATA III ports, as well as the recently sought-after M.2 interface, are great. If you still need a higher bit rate, you can use MSI RAMDisk technology. It saves a portion of the memory and creates a virtual disk, making it 25x faster than the SSD. Even external drives are not far behind, thanks to the presence of the second-generation USB 3.1, boasting up to 20x faster than the previous version.

Optimal for networking

To make your gaming experience as smooth as possible, the MSI Z170M MORTAR is equipped with a gaming network card. Thanks to it, gaming applications will always be preferred when using network communication, minimising latency. With Gaming LAN Manager, you can customise prioritisation according to your own needs.
