MSI MAG B660M MORTAR WIFI – HardwareCooking

This motherboard is intended for use with 12th generation Intel Alder Lake-S processors. Indeed, we are here on a new LGA 1700 socket and only this generation is compatible. Thus, we can for example place an i9-12900K , i7-12700K or even the i5-12600K to quote the references with unlocked coefficient, but this motherboard will be more suitable for non-K CPUs like the i5-12400or why not the i9-12900. Although the B660 chipset does not allow CPU overclocking, memory OC is still possible. As for several generations in the mainstream sector, this motherboard is able to manage 128 GB of memory at most, but this is done here in DDR5.

There are two M.2 slots, both of which have a thermal heat sink finished in the same brushed silver as the rest of the motherboard.

On the contrary, something that does not go unnoticed are the brushed aluminum heatsinks that it has spread over its entire surface. These coolers have a generous size and an attractive design with black lines and grooves that give the board some charisma. Another thing that surprised me is that both M.2 ports have their own heatsinks, which MSI calls M.2 Shield Frozr .
