Joe M says:

learned nothing. I came here thinking lets see what i need to know about buying a good gaming motherboard. “don’t buy stuff you don’t need,,” really i make it a point to try and not do that. Hard when you have no clue what you need for what your trying to do.

Reiden Lightman says:

Of course it’s subjective. Anyone who expected to get a concrete choice from this will be very disappointed. But those people need to learn that it is dependent on person to person which is why not all motherboards are carbon copies of each other.

Jonathan David says:

Very well done. I subscribed!

ali Naseem says:

Rio Colorado says:

Super dislike for such a shitty and unexplicative video.

ZPERO says:

can someone help me out understand all the motherboards that are or there for Intel Skylake?
With Ryzen it’s very simple: X370 for best overclocking, B350 for moderate overclocking and a lower price, and some other crap that doesn’t support overclocking.

But with skylake there seem to be so many boards out there, what if I just wanted good overclocking for gaming, and didn’t really care about all the other bells and whistles?
can someone walk me through all the chipsets available for the LGA 1151 socket?

Hannes Camitz says:

Seriously the server board look more badass in comparison to the “cool” board.
