Entry Level Motherboards
There may be many older boards in the market but we don’t have official price for all of them. We have list of newly launched and popular boards. Nevertheless, we are very amazed to see market grasp of G41 and G31 mainboards. We can’t find older products for LGA1151 easily but G41 is available everywhere. Here in this list we have motherboards of lower and basic range. These are the price of entry level latest MSI motherboard in Nepal.
|MSI G41M-P33||Rs 5,000|
|H110M ProVD||Rs 8,500|
|H110 Gaming||Rs 10,120|
|H310M Pro-VD Plus||Rs 10,650|
|H310 Pro-VDH Plus||Rs 11,000|
These platforms are the most basic and it is the cheapest consumers can buy. The H110 chipsets support 6th and 7th generation processors such as Core i3 and Core i5. Similarly the H310 supports 8th and 9th generation processors. In theory these can handle Core i7 as well but it is not recommended. For high power demanding processors, it is better to have boards with better VRM, heatsinks and capacitors.
Mid Range mainboards
MSI has mid range motherboards which includes latest B360, B250, B150 and H370 chipsets. These products have better features such as more SATA ports, USB header, fan header, RAM slots and more I/O options. Most people like to pair their Core i5 and some even pair their Core i7 with these mother boards. These are locked chipsets so overclocking is not possible. However we take these are best value products.
|B250M Pro-VD||Rs 11,760|
|B250M Mortar||Rs 13,200|
|B365M Pro-VDH||Rs 12,400|

High End Unlocked Intel Motherboards
Intel only allows Z series chipset to overclock their unlocked K series processors. This means you need to pair both unlocked processor and expensive Z series motherboard to overclock your processor. Usually people who have unlocked Core i9, Core i7 and Core i5 use these boards. This below given list is for older processors and platforms. The Z170 and Z270 are for 6th and 7th generation Intel processors. Both Z170 and Z270 have forward and backward compatitbility.

Intel HEDT Platform Boards
In the HEDT or High End desktop lineup, Intel has Core X series workstation processors. These have high core and thread counts so these are fantastic for multi-threaded application. 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 and many more. It is easy to identify them because boards have X at their name at first and processors have X at last.
|X99 SLI Plus||Rs 37200|
|X299 Raider||Rs 39000|

All AMD Ryzen processors are unlocked and users can overclock them. Therefore we suggest you to get good board as possible. For entry level such as Ryzen 3 1200 A320 board is great but for processors like 1600X or 2700x the cheap B450 can be a good pair.
Platforms and Chipsets
Choose you processor and board carefully because it will be very critical future. Think of what you need and what you might need in future before making purchase. If you are going with Core i3 then H series board are very capable. If Core i5 is your choice then B series boards are the best best. Choose the Z series boards for all 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 8600K. We also have a video to help you guys on this matter.
If you want to plan for longer run, you can opt for Z series because it gives you path to add unlocked powerful processor in future. For example if you are buying i5 8400 now and plan to upgrade to i9 9900K in future then Z390 would be good option instead of B360. Be careful while choosing the chipset because it is one of the most important base. Some boards only support one graphics card or have just one PCIe X16 slot. Be careful on this matter, if you want SLI or Cross Fire, make sure the board is certified for SLI or CorssFire.
For more PCI lanes, Intel’s HEDT lineup like Core i9 9980XE and 10980XE1 provide better value compared to consumer grade CPU. So if those are your need, think about them as well. Think of what features you need and then only make purchasing decision.
Recommendation and Advice
Always update new firmware when it comes. Choose the board that fits the budget and will help you expand in future. We always recommend to choose motherboard with 4 RAM slots if you can. Mini ITX boards with just 2 slots are a bit of barrier for memory in future. These things run for a decade and requirements change over years so 4 slots is good way to go.
If you are an enthusiast with tight budget choose B series because they have great features and expansion options. Keep your system clean and cool with good ventilation and cooling. Make sure you have high quality power supply and everything is fitted correctly. We’ll keep updating this list regularly, so keep updated with us. If you have anything to share, drop a comment below.
