2nd-gen MSI ECO series motherboards debut

MSI launching 2nd-gen ECO series motherboards for power-conscious builders
By: Sean Ridgeley | Motherboards News | Posted: Nov 27, 2015 1:34 am

MSI is launching its second generation of environmentally-conscious and power-efficient ECO motherboards. Based on the 100-series Skylake chipset and an optimized PCB and circuitry design, the new models -- H170M ECO, B150M ECO, and H110M ECO -- are said to lead in power efficiency without hurting capability in any way.

 

Included software offers in-depth control over power consumption (even case fans and LEDs can be turned off) and features. If you don't want to do all the tinkering yourself, presets are included.

 

As for compatibility, all Intel 6th Core, Pentium, and Celeron processors are supported, though Intel S & T series are recommended for their power efficiency. Memory-wise, high-speed DDR4 in single and dual-channel is supported.

 

Pricing and availability have not been announced; specifications are below.
