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.

Intel Z390 Socket 1151 ATX & Larger Motherboards

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.

Intel H310 Socket 1151 MicroATX Motherboards

The Intel H310 chipset is the entry-level model for Intel 8th generation Core processors, codename Coffee Lake. Being the most affordable & basic of all the Intel 300 Series chipsets, these motherboards only support a single Graphics card, and do not support RAID, Intel Optane Memory, 10Gbps USB 3.1 Gen2, or overclocking. The extra PCIe lanes provided by the chipset are limited to PCI2 Gen2, however H310 still supports the now ubiquitous 5Gbps USB 3.1 Gen1 (formerly known as USB 3.0) & enables users to build a system around the new Intel Coffee Lake CPUs on a shoe-string budget, retaining the core functionality required for home or office PCs. These particular boards are smaller micro-ATX designs with middling 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 H310 Motherboards.

Intel X299 Socket 2066 ATX & Larger Motherboards

The X299 chipset is Intel's flagship model for extreme desktop systems including gaming PCs and content creation workstations. With its LGA 2066 socket, this chipset supports Intel's most powerful desktop CPUs from the Skylake X and Kaby Lake X ranges. It supports quad-channel DDR4 memory, providing unparalled memory bandwidth. With up to 44 PCI-E 3.0 lanes available, these motherboards deliver masses of bandwidth for SLI and CrossFireX configurators, offering unrestricted performance in games and graphic intensive content creation applications. With heaps of USB 3.0, SATA 6Gb/s ports and overclocking features these motherboards are the ultimate platform for high-performance desktop PCs. These particular X299 models are ATX or larger for full-size desktop PCs.

Despite using the new Socket 2066, the external layout is the same as Socket 2011-3, so you can use any of these coolers with your new Socket 2066 motherboard.
