    If your rockin' 7th gen. Kabylake non-OC CPU's this is a great place to start. Plenty of options for expansion, good amount of USB 3.0 ports, 4 DIMM slots with DDR4 boost to 2400, easy click BIOS to work with, M.2 slots, 4 system fan headers (PWM 4-pin), 6 SATA ports, and due to its black and grey color scheme can fit with any color build you want, so don't be afraid to display this MoBo in a window!

    The front audio connector is about as far from the front audio as possible; it is at the bottom left of the motherboard. There is also a weird led strip by the PCI slots.

    The MSI B250 PC MATE is an easy to use motherboard and has plenty of fan headers and a decent layout. The BIOS is pretty good too. Good job MSI, overall happy with the quality.

    Has everything you'd want in a current mobo. BIOS was easy to navigate even for a newbie like me. All the connectors made pretty logical sense. The tiny LED strip running down the left is kinda awkward, definitely leaves you with an "is that supposed to be there?" impression.

    Great motherboard for the price point. Has M.2 support too if I ever decide to upgrade.

    User-friendly BIOS and lots of expansion room. There's an LED strip on the side which is kind of random. No on-board WiFi or Bluetooth, so I used a wireless USB network adapter that I got for $20 on Amazon :P I switched to ethernet a few months later though. Went from 45 mbps download to 70.

    Very decent motherboard, I can't say its the prettiest thing with the ugly yellowish LED strip on the side, but it does what it needs to do for a B250 Motherboard, had no hiccups with it and the bios is easy to use, click-bios is a nice touch.

    No overclocking, means I could shave a few bucks off of the price of the motherboard. This one came with four fan connectors, as well as the CPU fan, and the sys-pump (for liquid cooling) connectors. All the features of a more expensive board.

    My one "con" to this system is the I/O shield was a bit flimsy and easily bent when attempting to install it. It was stressed and bent again when we installed the motherboard.
