Motherboard layout design
When buying a motherboard, it is imperative to consider the layout of the motherboard you will be buying. This includes the positioning of mounting holes , expansion slots, ports etc. Of course your cpu case should be compatible with the motherboard, otherwise it would not fit.

RAM slots
The number of RAM Slots should be able to accommodate your needs.

CPU socket
Be advised that in choosing your motherboard, it must be compatible with the PROCESSOR FAMILY you want to patronize. There are boards that are created exclusively selected CPU models only. Try asking the retailer/seller of the items for more information, or search for it online.

Important things to consider when buying a Motherboard Part 2

November 12th, 2014 · Comments Off

The latest motherboards today usually offer both IDE and SATA connectors. This is because of the rise of the new SATA drives (Serial ATA). Choosing a motherboard that supports SATA drives is a wise option.

PCI slots

Most motherboards have at least two to four PCI slots for expansion and flexibility.
Standard PCI slots designated on the board for additional enhancements like sound cards, video cards, Ethernet cards.
Most mainstream boards also have the faster version of PCI slots, the PCI Express (PCIe).
In buying a motherboard, it is best to plan what enhancements you will apply on your machine.

Know your needs, your preferences and your budget. Seek for more options and opinions from experts to see what motherboard is right for you.

When Buying a Motherboard

November 5th, 2014 · Comments Off

What is a Pc/desktop without a motherboard???? Nothing actually for it is the part of a computer system that allows you to make good use of the computing power locked in today’s multi-core computer processors. The motherboard is the binder that allows your processor(computer’s brain), ram(memory), Video processor and the many other peripherals you use to communicate with each other allowing them to function into one heck of a collection of technology that is the desktop of today.
As with most stuff you can buy, the cheaper the less reliable they are so the best brands do come at a price. It also tends to change frequently as technology evolves, older tech goes obsolete such as the IDE interface as it has slowly been taken over by the much faster SATA interface.

The motherboard’s form is also important.

October 29th, 2014 · Comments Off

The design of the motherboard is something that you should consider much. Aside from the specs and speed of it, the form and design of it are also important since this will determine the placement of your hardware in your computer. If you wish to have USB ports in front of your PC, you must buy motherboards that have USB slots in front. With this, comes the issue of the CPU’s casing. If there are no holes in front, you obviously have to replace it. All the hardware slots (slots for the LAN, phone port, USB ports, plug, monitor etc.) are also important since you will be connecting some of your external devices on it. The least thing that you want to happen is for your slots to be covered.

Your Motherboard

October 22nd, 2014 · Comments Off

The motherboard or the mainboard is the core of the computer set, each part of the computer relies on the mainboard to work its part correctly. One of the main functions of motherboard is to maintain connection between each computer parts and make sure that components are working well between them.

Lots of signs of motherboard crashes are that the PC won’t boot up. It does not reach the POST test. It shows erratic behavior. Or something else of any combinations of components is not working. Because all parts in computer is associated to the motherboard a particular parts may or may not work properly if the motherboard is damaged

What does ASUS P5N-E SLI SLI lack? (1/3)

October 15th, 2014 · Comments Off

Compared to the other SLI models, the 650i SLI is surely missing out on a lot of things, though none of them seem to have a real impact on performance.

Boards equipped with the nForce 650i SLI does not have the 1333MHz FSB support (at least for now), EPP memory support, 28 PCI Express bus lanes, two SATA ports, two USB ports and one Gigabit LAN port.

Most users might not pay enough attention to the missing ports, and at least some will ignore the lack of official 1333MHz FSB and EPP memory support, but the 28 missing PCI Express bus lanes really does matter.

Intel G45 チップセットのデスクトップ・マザーボード

最近地元の販売店でこの製品を購入した。 パソコンのホームシアター、又はパワーが低いHTPCに使えると思いこの製品を購入する事を決めた。 私は安く、消費電力が最小なCPUを好み、 ビデオにとりブルーレイとHD DVDとしてハイディフィニションの内容をハードウェアが解読しながら行うことは大事であった。だが私はたくさんの電気を消費するために、オンボードのビデオカードは選ばなかった。そして今のところ、この利口で驚異的な製品が全ての必要条件に合っている。私はRAM の2GBとWindows Vista Ultimateオペレーティングシステムと一緒に、Intel Core2 Duo E7200 CPUを使用している。トータル・メディア・シアター(TMT)を使用中、電力の短期間の技術上の問題なしにブルーレイの映画を鑑賞する事が出来る。素晴らしい事にCPUは電力手段の約20%しか消費していない。この製品を使用していて出くわした問題は、休止中、そしてスタンバイモード時に製品が不安定な事だ。時々製品が使用されていない時でさえ、休止モードに従事せず、時々従事する時もある。Intel社にこの問題を報告したが、残念ながらこの問題について返答をしていない。たぶんBIOSの更新のように修正を発見できるだろう。

Ease of Use

October 1st, 2014 · No Comments

PC MoBo’s have gotten easier to use with easy setup jumpers that makes installation a breeze. They usually come in the box pre-set to optimal settings and the manual has simple instructions, enough for medium techies to experiment enough to get the most of their recent purchase. Be sure to know what you’re doing and do ask questions or better yet get the shop to do the swap should you not know what a jumper block is.

Most PC boards have BIOS set optimal settings that can to some extent override hardware jumper settings. But just to be sure, leave the jumpers as they are unless you are doing some major tweaking such as overclocking.

Things you must do before changing your motherboard. (part II)

September 24th, 2014 · Comments Off

3. Find a large space for workspace. Changing a motherboard requires a lot of unscrewing the parts and so, you might want to consider doing it in a large open area. Although you might find it reasonable to open your CPU on a small table, it’s ok, as long as you can remember where you placed the screws (and as long as you won’t find it annoying to go to and fro the places where you’ve placed the parts).
4. Make the puzzle fit. Newer versions of motherboards use another kind of power supply and have a 24 pin slot for the connector. If your computer is relatively old, the cord for the power supply might only have 20 pins on it. Although it is possible to do this, it is somewhat risky since you will deliver insufficient electric supply to your motherboard.

What is a Chipset?

September 17th, 2014 · Comments Off

Do you know what a chipset is? Well, chipsets are the main controllers on the motherboard – they allow the CPU to interface with the various components and expansion cards installed.

When choosing your chipset, always bear in mind the type of memory supported by the motherboard. Make sure that the board supports the type and amount of RAM you need. Generally, choosing a chipset that supports high speed memory will allow your system to perform better.
