Intel HEDT Platform Boards

In the HEDT or High End desktop lineup, Intel has Core X series for workstation processors. These have high core and thread counts, so these are fantastic for multi-threaded applications. Also, they support quad-channel memory with up to 128 GB using 8 numbers of 16 GB DDR4 sticks.

These are very expensive and professional level motherboards for processors like Core i9 10980XE, 9980XE, Core i7 7800X, Core i5 7640X, etc. It is easy to identify them because boards have X at their name at first, and processors have X at last. One of the best features or pros of these boards is the high number of PCI Express lanes. It is beneficial for professionals who need a large number of peripherals.

Entry Range AMD Motherboards

Nepali customers can find good AMD motherboards for cheap in the market these days. In comparison to Intel chipsets, AMD counterparts are very affordable. This is an international or USA case. But here also we do get good boards at a reasonable price. In order to simply explain, we can say a few things about the naming scheme. A series is the most basic, B series is the mid-range, and the X series is the flagship.

Below we mainly have A320 series AMD mainboards from MSI. These have an AM4 socket and can support 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processors. The A320 series products only have maximum support of PCI-E Gen3.

All AMD Ryzen processors are unlocked, and users can overclock them. Therefore we suggest you get a good board as far as possible. For example, at the entry-level, Ryzen 3 1200 with an A320 board is excellent. But for processors like 1600X or 2700x, the cheap B450 can be a good pair. For Ryzen 3600X and Ryzen 5 5600X, newer B550 boards can be great. Similarly, for processors like Ryzen 7 3700X, the X570 board is a good option. For a new generation processor like AMD Ryzen 5 3600X, Ryzen 7 5800, we recommend a good B450, B550, or X570 board.

Platforms and Chipsets

Choose your processor and board carefully because it will be very critical for the future. Think of what you need and what you might need in the future before making a purchase. If you are going with Core i3, then the H series board is very capable. If Core i5 is your choice, then B series boards are the best best. Choose the Z series boards for all unlocked Core i7 and Core i5 processors. Also, get the Z series chipset if you are purchasing unlocked Core i3 or Core i5 such as 8350K or 9600K. We also have a video to help you guys on this matter.

PC Motherboards Purchase Guide in Nepali

If you want to plan for a longer run, you can opt for the Z series because it gives you a path to add an unlocked powerful processor in the future. For example, if you are buying i5 9400F now and plan to upgrade to i9 9900K in the future, then Z390 would be a good option instead of B360. Be careful while choosing the chipset because it is one of the most important bases. Some boards only support one graphics card or have just one PCIe X16 slot.

For more PCI lanes, Intel’s HEDT lineup like Core i9 9980XE and 10980XE provide better value compared to consumer-grade CPU. So if those are your needs, think about them as well. Think of what features you need and then only make a purchasing decision.

H Series vs B series Chipset differences

If we see the MSI motherboard price in Nepal, we find that some H lineup boards are close to the B lineup. For example, H370 Pro-VDH is close to B365M Pro-VDH. The small price delta can make a huge difference in features mainly. One of the main reasons to choose expensive boards is for features and I/O. In the case of H and B, we see that the low end or H310, H410, and H110 boards have just two RAM slots, while B360, B460 models have 4 of them. Also, H310 doesn’t support NVME M.2 SSD. There are fewer ports for SATA and fan headers as well. The number of PCI-E 3 lanes also differs in some models.

B360 and B460 have 12 PCI-Express 3.0 lanes, while some H310 only has 6 PCI-E 2.0 lanes. The lower end also doesn’t have Optane memory support while the upper B lineup has it. The number of USB ports on the B line is also higher in comparison. For most people, it doesn’t matter much. It only matters for a few people who are very careful in terms of need, demand, and expansion.

Each generation the differences between the chipsets change a bit. So study the features of the board you want before making a purchase.

Z series vs X series: Differences and Similarities

These are very different chipsets and platforms. The Z lineup has Z470, Z370, Z390, Z270, and many other boards. These are consumer-level products for regular unlocked Core i9, Core i7, Core i5, and Core i3. The Z series motherboards provide a higher number of SATA and USB ports. They also have more PCI-E lanes and, most importantly, overclocking capability. Mostly gamers and professionals choose this to use unlocked overclockable processors.

X series is for HEDT platforms, and they are for workstation CPU. The boards such as X99, X299, etc. have different configurations. They support higher memory, a high number of graphics card, and have large IO lanes. While Z series mainboards have 4 RAM slots, X299 can have up to 8 slots. These are not for regular home or office users. The CPU that sit on these boards have high core and thread count. Therefore, we see very good VRM, chipset cooling, and other features. This platform is for serious professionals, engineers, and special tasks.

Recommendation and Advice

Always update new firmware when it comes. Choose the board that fits the budget and will help you expand in the future. We always recommend choosing a motherboard with 4 RAM slots if you can. Mini ITX boards with just 2 slots are a bit of a barrier for memory expansion in the future. These things run for a decade, and requirements change over the years. So 4 slots are an excellent way to go.

If you are an enthusiast with a tight budget, choose the Intel B series because they have great features and expansion options. Keep your system clean and cool with adequate ventilation and cooling. Make sure you have a high-quality power supply, and everything is fitted correctly. We also have an article regarding basic computer repairing and troubleshooting. We’ll keep updating this list regularly, so keep updated with us. If you have anything to share, drop a comment below.
