Motherboards - Intel

The motherboard is the central hub of a PC, the board to which every other main component connects – CPUs in the socket, memory in the DIMM slots, and GPUs, sound cards and other expansion cards in the PCI slots. Hard disks, SSDs, optical drives and front-panel ports also connect to it. Intel motherboards have numerous socket types, chipsets and form factors, so make sure you've got the right configuration before buying. Intel's latest product range includes the mainstream LGA1151 and high-end LGA2066 sockets used by the Z370 and X299 chipsets, respectively.
