Today marks the end of Intel’s NDA for the new non-K Alder Lake processors and the arrival of the B660 chipset, which will make Alder Lake and DDR5 compatible motherboards more affordable. Once again, we have been spoiled by MSI France as they have sent us a starter kit to test their new MSI MAG B660M Mortar Wifi motherboard.
This kit, in addition to containing the motherboard, came with an Alder Lake i5-12400 processor and a Kingston Fury 5200 MT/s CL40 DDR5 memory kit. Finally, to keep the new CPU cool, MSI also sent us their new 240mm cooling system, the MSI MAG Coreliquid C240.
In this review, we’ll focus on the new motherboard – if you want to know how the i5-12400 performs against other Alder Lake processors, we invite you to read this review.
Thanks again to MSI France for making this bundle available for testing the new Alder Lake i5-12400 on the MSI MAG B660M Mortar Wifi motherboard.
