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. Feel free to contact Scan for buying advice prior to purchase.
The Intel Z590 chipset is the flagship chipset for Intel 10th Core processors codename Comet Lake with limited support for 11th generation Rocket Lake processors. It supports 24 PCIe lanes, 14 USB ports and is required for overclocking. These particular boards are full size ATX designs with maximum expandability.
The Intel B460 chipset is the mid-range chipset for Intel 10th generation Core processors, codename Comet Lake. It supports 16 PCIe lanes and 12 USB ports. These particular boards are small form factor micro-ATX designs with middling expandability.
The Intel Z390 chipset is the flagship chipset for Intel 9th generation Core processors, codename Coffee Lake. It supports two graphics cards, the most USB ports and is required for overclocking. These particular boards are full size ATX designs with maximum expandability.
Please Note: Despite utilising the same LGA1151 socket as 200 & 100 Series Motherboards, ONLY Intel 8th and 9th gen 'Coffee Lake' CPUs are compatible with these Intel Z370 Motherboards.

The Intel B360 chipset is the next step-down from the H370 chipset for Intel 8th generation Core processors, codename Coffee Lake. Like the H370 chipset, B360 does not support overclocking & usually only supports a single graphics card (although some of these motherboards may support 2x AMD Radeon Graphics Card in CrossFire - Check Specs. for details). Its main difference from the chipsets above are it loses support for RAID, but it does however maintain support for Intel Optane Memory & 10Gbps USB 3.1 Gen2. Another notable trade-off with B360, is that the chipset supplies less PCIe 3.0 Lanes for other devices than both of the more expensive Z370 & H370 chipsets. These particular boards are full-size ATX designs for maximum expandability.
Please Note: Despite utilising the same LGA1151 socket as 200 & 100 Series Motherboards, ONLY Intel 8th Gen. 'Coffee Lake' CPUs are compatible with these Intel B360 Motherboards.
