MSI Gaming AMD Ryzen B350 DDR4 VR Ready HDMI USB 3 CFX micro-ATX Motherboard (B350M MORTAR ARCTIC)

9.5 Total Score
MSI B350M Mortar Arctic delivers all the features at the right price, with an eye catching white color scheme

MSI has a whole stable of AMD Ryzen motherboards, but the B350M Mortar Arctic is likely to turn heads for several reasons. Its overclockability, budget-friendly pricing, and white color scheme complete with LEDs is an impressive mATX solution for Ryzen builds. If you're not looking to use multiple GPUs, and want to build a smaller Ryzen gaming PC, we think this is a fantastic motherboard to start with.

PROS
  • Great ports and slots layout
  • Inexpensive overclocker
  • Stable
  • Includes LED accent lighting
CONS
  • Could use a few more LEDs for effect
  • Only one CPU fan header

MSI B350M Mortar Arctic Review

MSI are clearly onto a winner with their Ryzen boards, the BIOS seem to be well in front of the competition with both CPU voltage control and memory support.

Overclock3d.net

The MSI B350M Mortar Arctic is a budget socket AM4 board that features the B350 chipset. As a mATX motherboard around $100, MSI smartly did not opt for the more expensive X370 chipset, given that the B350 has all the features a gamer would want for a smaller build. The B350M Mortar Arctic comes in a striking white color scheme and includes white LEDs behind the board for accent lighting. MSI has reinforced the primary x16 slot, allowing for heavier GPUs to be installed without long-term flex issues. The motherboard has all of the ports and expansion options you’d expect, including an M.2 PCI-Express slot, four DDR4 slots, and a host of USB ports on the back, including video out for upcoming AM4 GPUs, making this a very future-proof design. The B350 Mortar Arctic features MSI’s Command Center, making overclocking a breeze from inside of Windows. Here you can set fan curves for either PWM or voltage controlled fans and can set multipliers and voltages as needed. BIOS options are plenty, and updating is easy with MSI’s included software tools. While we would have liked to have seen a second CPU fan header, and perhaps a slightly better choice of white, we think this motherboard is an excellent board for any gamer on a budget, regardless of whether or not you intend to show off the looks of the board.
