Expensive vs cheap motherboards

why should i buy a more expensive lga 1200 socket motherboard rather than going for the cheapest one that still fits my 2x8gb ddr4 ram? (2400mhz) ------------------------------ Looking to upgrade my processor in my pc from an i7 7700k thats sitting inside an asus z270-a I have an ssd, a hdd, noctua nh-d15 cpu cooler, gtx msi 1080 and a 600w psu. I have checked everything except my ssds, psu and hdd if it fits the motherboard i listed below and it does. I assume ssd hdd psu will fit anything so, but ill check for sure. later. my question is why should i buy a motherboard for 130 euro when i could get a gigabyte b560m H for 95 euro? or maybe a cheaper on. from what i see i should have a pcie 4.0 and atleast 2 m.2 slots for my ssd. Im not looking into upgrading anything except for a new gpu when the price drops and maybe another hdd drive. ------------------------------------------- my new build will have an i5 11600k with a lga 1200 socket. what are some good motherboards on a budget? Why should i invest in a pricier one? the best one i have found is the aformentioned gigabyte b560m H for 95 euro.

11600k => overclockable b560 => wont let you overclock, z590 would Might aswell go for 11600 without k (though some people say its still better to go for the k version even if you dont plan to do any overclocking, because it might be more durable and yes, it has a higher base clock and a slightly higher boost clock) Also im not sure if all core boost clock is already an overclocking feature or not, if it is, your performance will suffer dramatically so you might wanna check if your main board will allow all core boost Maybe also take a look at this: premiumbuilds.com/guides/b560-vs-h570-z5..

thanks, i have a good deal for the 11600k so im looking for a mb for it. the z590 is a bit more pricey, in the the 140 euro range. i never overclocked my 7700k but maybe ill try it with the new one since i dont think cooling will suffer too much. could you recommend any other motherboards? ill check out the ideos you posted later

If you dont overclock you might aswell go with the cheapest compatible. If you plan on overclocking the more expensive boards have better current circuits or whatever it is in english, so they dont fry when you take more power out of it to your cpu.

More expensive motherboards have more/better -Features -Build quality -Overclocking capability If you don't value these then an entry-level will do

I can not recommend anything specific, it's a long time since I built my pc (i5-8600K). I have an MSI motherboard in this one and my old PC as well. Both have served me well. I managed to push my 8600K to 5.0GHz which is quite good for it, and this is not even a top spec MSI motherboard (Tomahawk Z370). Shop around a little bit and check reviews/youtube videos, they can be helpful. No point paying for features you don't need.

I wouldn't get the cheapest but the most expensive ones are waste of money as well if you just plan on gaming. Try finding a good middle ground

Well usually the cheapest ones have less lanes coming from the cpu to gpu, storage, ram etc. Which can lead to slower performance. Also some cheaper motherboards have power limits which can really effect the speeds of the cpu especially when the 11th and 12th gen cpus draw so much power. And that gigabyte board well let's just say it isn't the best of the cheap ones. Here is pretty good video explaining differences between motherboards: youtu.be/GvyQXkFUe3E

Unless you car for overclocking or specific features, I'd just advise to get a motherboard that has the I/O you need and is a bit above the cheapest. In my personal opinion, that gigabyte board looks a bit barren, there is not even any VRM cooling. This could lead to a loss in performance if they do get hot. This board would work better with a downdraft cooler as you can at least guarantee air flowing past it. Cheapest motherboard I would consider (at least in my region) is ASrock B560 Pro4

thanks, i found the b560 M pro4 version for 110 euro. i do have a pretty big cpu cooler and plenty of fans inside my pc so i dont think it would be a big problem. what do you mean by I/O?

Even with the right cooling VRM temps can be an issue. I ran a watercooled PC with 10 fans for a bit and that one had crashes due to VRM temp issues, even on a more expensive board. Reason? Dead spots in airflow. And that NH-D15 will suck up a lot of air around it. It may not be an issue, but those VRM coolers may also help if you do decide to pick up a better CPU that fits the motherboard in a few years maybe (if that is on your mind) I/O is the In/Out on the back of the motherboard, so USB ports and such. It's easy to get a USB splitter and if you get a decent one they're fine, but any devices that need good throughput or low latency (like your keyboard and mouse) should 100% be plugged into your PC.

Thanks, I/O is called something else in my language :) ill take it into consideration, i guess i would have to throttle my pc so the vrm wont overheat. could you get an individual vrm cooler that fits my noctua cooler? (nh-d15) and do you have any tips for a decent motherboard around 100 euro?

No, unless you want to put small fans on your motherboard with tie wraps or something. If you could send me the site where you can compare prices for you locally or the site you plan to order from I can have a look in a bit.

heres one for comparing multiple stores; prisjakt.nu/c/moderkort?783=34346&sort=p.. its like pricerunner this one too but its a singular store; inet.se/kategori/1174/socket-1200?sortCo..

prisjakt.nu/produkt.php?p=5830652 looks fine, not available in my country. not the best brand, but they have been around for a while and 6 USB ports is enough unless you need a shitload of devices (but at this point just getting a good splitter is cheaper)
2022-01-20 13:16
- Cleaner power, which could impact stability, overclocking and ability to upgrade to bigger better cpu later - Better memory compatability - quality of software But yeah usually motherboard is not a good way to spend your extra moneyz and if you a gamer looking for some extra fps, get a cheapish mobo.
