Layout is perfect for an HTPC case. Has every feature I could ask for.
There's not many options when it comes to Mini ITX B250 motherboards, but MSI does have one and they have a good BIOS. Everything I needed in a motherboard.
Easy to build with. Only two ram slots but thats to be expected. Lots of guides to help with assembly in the box.
The combination of only 1 PCI slot and no on-board wifi is a drag, but whatever. If I end up getting a graphics card at some point I'll have to also surrender a USB port to a wifi dongle. I wish the B150I would have been compatible with my CPU for that reason. Otherwise, the layout is great! No technical issues thus far.
Looking back I wish I went with the ASUS ROG Strix board now, but that can always be upgraded in the future. Really like the layout of this board, the 24 pin and SATA ports are in very good spots. I've seen boards with them in the most random places it seems. I REALLY wish there was more than one system fan header though. But that is to be expected on ITX mobos. Overall good little board.
