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.
The Intel H270 chipset is the mid-range chipset for Intel 7th generation Core processors, codename Kaby Lake. Compared to the more expensive Z270 chipsets H270 only supports a single graphics card, 2 fewer USB ports and does not support overclocking. These particular boards are full size ATX designs with maximum expandability.

These motherboards are based on the AMD B350 chipset and are designed for the AMD Ryzen range of CPUs. The B350 is the mid-range Ryzen chipset, and so features a modest number of SATA ports, USB ports and PCI-E lanes. Unlike the more expensive X370 motherboards, B350 boards do not support SLI or CrossFire. These particular boards are full size ATX designs with maximum expandability.
Please note: The motherboards below with graphics outputs are designed for future AMD processors with onboard graphics. Ryzen 5 & Ryzen 7 CPUs do not have onboard graphics and require a discrete graphics card.
Please note: In order to use a AMD Ryzen 5 CPU with these Motherboards, you may need to update the motherboard BIOS to the latest version before installing the CPU.
