MSI B450 Tomahawk pictured

Entry-level ATX motherboard

The B450 Tomahawk from MSI is an entry-level motherboard that comes with a few interesting features. At a first glance the B450 Tomahawk offers everything you need for your daily gaming system and it sells at a rather reasonable price tag.


The B450 Tomahawk is based on an ATX form factor with four DIMM slots. The predecessor, which was based on the B350 chipset featured a red backlight around the ground layer insulation. The new B450 Tomahawk noch comes with RGB backlighting. Layout wise we see two full-sized PCIe 3.0 x16 slots and three PCIe x1 slots. In general the layout is quite simple.

In the storage department there are six SATA ports and four of them have been angled. Apart from that you get one M.2 slot allowing the installation of differently sized SSDs. The M.2 slot is placed in the middle of the motherboard and it's compatible with 22110 units.

In terms of pricing this particular board is placed somewhere between the entry-level and the mid-range market segment. During the last days we have added the motherboard to our B450 Motherboard Charts and during the following days you will find our review as well.
