MSI Z170M MORTAR, Intel Z170, S 1151, DDR4, SATAe, M.2, Gigabit LAN, USB 3.1 Gen1 A, Micro ATX is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Misleading listing The motherboard is great, I can tell you that much... However my beef is with Scan's listing. It says Internal I/O for M.2. Which I presumed meant it would support the Samsung 950 M.2 PCIE 2080. I can confirm this board does not support M.2 2080 cards. I literally just finished building my PC... Got to the last part to put the M.2 in, and now my brand new shiny rig can't even be used because I have no storage drive. Hopefully scan will let me replace this with one that does support M.2. :(
