I just get a cheap Z170, I got a gigabyte Z-170 HD3P, it was 120 when I got it… overclocks… it’s good enough

Robert Drake says:

Screw Fractal. NO quality control, got mine with a huge warp in the case (not that one, a R4).

Kevin White says:

so do b250m motherboards require a flash to work with kaby chips? specifically the g4560?

Zephir il ventilatore chiassoso says:

8:00 what does that “indipendent displays” mean? If I get a h110 mobo I won’t be able to connect 3 displays? But wasn’t that a gpu thing?

jholotan best says:

First the whole z or x thin is totally bs and because we can’t change it I would like to see some lower end motherboards whit overclockability whit lower end chip sets because and don need that many usb and sata ports

Anshuman Walvekar says:

he whined about muha USBs get worn out and its going to be replaced soon and you dont need all that.

I want to play arma, and swicth over from console gaming, due to the new generation of console’s coming soon.

All Black Everything says:

Thomas Alexander Holm SPE Fælleshåbsskolen says:

zaid achmed says:

What about h110

Juan Manuel says:

i’m going nuts trying to choose a z170 motherboard… there are way to many models… and i just need one that lets me overclock a 6700k to the fullest on air. no sli no crossf… gadgets i don’t care… how can i choose knowing what i need ?

Cam Liddle says:

Does the B150 support/have PWM? My main question is if i can use the new Corsair ML120 fans with my computer

Validifyed says:

So I litterally just played the video, and at the end realised I hadnt been paying any attention to it… oops.
Anyone got a Tl;Dr? lol

Beast says:

Props for the pun in the beginning XD

What...the...funk! says:

This is the struggle I have currently so many choices and features I go blind researching and reading reviews. But then I have a aw x51 r2 and yes we can. I prefer a sff not a hulking monster case.

Jaydaks rules says:

ronjonsurf39 says:

“when AMD’s AM4 is available in 2016” lol thats a nice thought

JMar119 says:

creepy crackhead neck scratch

Bone Crushing Metal says:

If you get something like an I3, aren’t looking to spend a lot and aren’t majorly concerned with future upgrades go with a B150. If you want something with headroom yet don’t plan on overclocking at least get an H170 chipset. If you have a K series CPU always get the top of the line chipset for overclocking.

Dominic Carnaje says:

it must very nice to leave in your country. the b150 only cost around $120, while here cost $250-300 while the z170 around $400-500.

Andrew Sheehan says:

I honestly thought the B150 chipset was better then the H170 chipset. I have been using the b150 chipset for the past year and no regrets using it. Actually my favorite one but, definitely learned something. Thanks Paul!

Master Xehanort says:

I’m getting an ASUS H170

AtomicAJ74 says:

I disagree with the philosophy of only buying a motherboard with an overclocking chipset when buying a “K” CPU. There is no problem or downside to buying a 6700K and running it at default speeds. You’re still getting higher performance for a modest increase in cost. It’s not hard to find yourself buying a board with the features and layout you want that doesn’t lend itself to overclocking.
