CES 2016 - ASUS had a tremendous showing at CES this year, with all manner of great new motherboards to look forward to and of course fantastic looking monitors. Now that Skylake has been out for a little bit, they're going to infuse the lower-end B150 chipset with some gaming love.


Even though these boards are not overclockable in the traditional (and official) sense, you can have a good stable board that uses all of the available resources that B150 has to offer, and in a small mini-ITX form-factor for those looking for a tiny, reliable and attractive package.

Underneath it'll be equipped with their Aura LED lighting that has a plethora of different colors and lighting effects. The board comes with MIMO enabled 802.11ac with an external 2x2 dual-band 2.5/5GHz antenna for maximum range and performance. There's an M.2 slot, and four separate SATA 6 ports for a mighty, yet great build. And better still is an on-board, dedicated water-pump header for the best possible cooling solutions.
