MSI MAG B660M Mortar Motherboard – DDR5 Technology
The MAG B660M MORTAR is a gaming oriented micro-ATX motherboard constructed around the latest Intel B660 chipset that balances value with premium hardware.
- 12TH GEN CORE, HIGH PERFORMANCE – The MAG B660M MORTAR (mATX) employs a 12 Duet Rail Power System (60A, DrMOS) VRM for the Intel B660 chipset (LGA 1700, 12th Gen Core ready) with Core Boost architecture for high CPU core count power demands
- INTEGRATED COOLING – VRM cooling features 7W/mK MOSFET thermal pads and an extended heatsink; Includes chipset heatsink, M.2 Shield Frozr, a dedicated pump-fan cooling header & 6-layer PCB with 2 oz. thickened copper
- DDR5 MEMORY, PCIe 4.0 & 3.0 x16 SLOTS – 4 x DDR5 DIMM slots with Memory Boost isolated circuitry for overclocking (1DPC 1R, 6200+ MHz); A PCIe 4.0 x16 Steel Armor slot supports graphics cards (secondary PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, AMD CrossFire supported)
- DUAL M.2 CONNECTORS – Storage includes 2 x M.2 Gen4 x4 64Gb/s slots (Intel Optane supported) with Shield Frozr to prevent thermal throttling during hyper-fast SSD access
- WELL CONNECTED – Network hardware includes a 2.5Gbps LAN controller; Rear ports include USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C (20Gbps), HDMI 2.1 & DisplayPort 1.4, and 7.1 HD Audio with Audio Boost (supports S/PDIF output)
Supports Intel Core 12th Gen Processors
The MAG B660M MORTAR motherboard supports 12th Gen Intel Core, Pentium Gold, and Celeron processors.
- Form Factor : Micro-ATX
