MSI B150M Mortar Arctic review – white camouflage

For those who want a modern platform, but not so powerful as Z170, Intel offers cheaper solutions, like B150. It is a good chipset, but lacks the overclocking features, so you will use the computer without any advanced settings, just using the default capabilities of the components.

MSI sent me B150M Mortar Arctic for review. I already reviewed the B150M Mortar, so I am curious if there are any other differences beside the color.
