MSI attacks the entry-level market with a new motherboard, the B75MA-G43 with Socket LGA 1155.
Fulfilling the Intel Small Business criteria , this micro-ATX solution is the little sister of the B75MA-G45. It embeds a VRM CPU of five phases while supporting Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge.
Its equipment is based on four DDR3 slots that accept a maximum of 32 GB of memory, two PCIe x16 (3.0 and 2.0), two PCI slots, five SATA 3 Gb/s, one SATA 6 Gb/s port. The chipset entitles to four USB 3.0 ports, including two external, while the video connection consists of DVI, VGA and HDMI in addition to an 8-channel audio chip, an Ethernet port, two PS2 ports, a COM port, a LPT port and multiple USB 2.0 ports.
