It´s just too sad companies like Asus, Msi and Gigabyte reserve their premium on-board solutions for their flagship motherboard models only. Not every audiophile PC user is necessarily a die-hard hardcore OCer and people who buy the most expensive boards with all the features shouldn´t have problems spending more on a DAC solution.

I’m searching for “How to TEST a NEW Motherboard” on YouTube…nothing. There are a ton of Builds and other things, but not a SIMPLE “How to TEST a NEW Motherboard” Step by Step.
Does anyone have a link to this?

Hey guys I’m trying to build my first computer and am a bit confused still. If the mobo of your choice has say, 2 usb 3 and 2 usb 2 on the rear io shield you still have to plug those onto your mobo correct? the reason I’m asking is my case comes with 2 usb 3 and 2 usb 2 headers on the front and I don’t know what to look for in terms of connectivity. thanks a lot everybody

chris crawley says:

Hi Jay. I’ve been a lurker for a while and I really enjoy your stuff. I like the way you don’t make it sound boring or “talk down” to us newbies. I appreciate that. I can and have built my own computers, but do tend to have questions sometimes. Like this one for example: Of course it’s a stupid one, but I have tons of stuff on my HD, so I’m wanting to know how to (if possible) build my new system and just take my HD out to this one and put it on the new one. Is this a thing? Oh and btdubs, you gots a subs. Cheezy as hell I know. Thanks.

when I’m looking for a motherboard the first question I ask how manny USB inputs does it have?

Kevin Gersteling says:

Hey guys, so I’m looking to build my first PC **Noob Alert!!** So yeah, as J said, “it can be hella confusing.” Could someone tell me what they think of the MSI B250M Gaming Pro? I guess the fact that it comes with a mouse is appealing, but am I just falling for a marketing tool or is there some backbone to this? If there is something better for a similar price, please throw it out there.

BoricuaSincero says:

I just bought a AMD FD8350FRHKBOX FX-8350 graphics card. What’s the best motherboard for that CPU? Thanks! :$
