Motherboards

In personal computers, a motherboard is the central printed circuit board (PCB) in many modern computers and holds many of the crucial components of the system, providing connectors for other peripherals. The motherboard is sometimes alternatively known as the mainboard, system board, or, on Apple computers, the logic board. It is also sometimes casually shortened to mobo.

CPU socket
i

CPU socket

A CPU socket or CPU slot is a mechanical component that provides mechanical and electrical connections between a microprocessor and a printed circuit board (PCB). This allows the CPU to be replaced without soldering.
Common sockets have retention clips that apply a constant force, which must be overcome when a device is inserted. For chips with a large number of pins, either zero-insertion force (ZIF) sockets or land grid array (LGA) sockets are used instead. These designs apply a compression force once either a handle (for ZIF type) or a surface plate (LGA type) is put into place. This provides superior mechanical retention while avoiding the risk of bending pins when inserting the chip into the socket.

Memory chip

Memory chip

Random-access memory is a form of computer data storage. A random-access device allows stored data to be accessed directly in any random order. In contrast, other data storage media such as hard disks, CDs, DVDs and magnetic tape, as well as early primary memory types such as drum memory, read and write data only in a predetermined order, consecutively, because of mechanical design limitations. Therefore the time to access a given data location varies significantly depending on its physical location.

Memory type

DDR-SDRAM ("Double Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory") is a type of random access memory (RAM) currently available in three categories. DDR-SDRAM with 184 contacts, DDR2-SDRAM with 240 contacts and DDR3-SDRAM also with 240 contacts. They are mainly used for memory modules of the DIMM or SO-DIMM standard as main memory in PCs and laptops.

i

USB 2.0 type A

Universal Serial Bus (USB) is a serial bus standard to interface devices. USB was designed to allow many peripherals to be connected using a single standardized interface socket and to improve the plug-and-play capabilities by allowing devices to be connected and disconnected without rebooting the computer (hot swapping). Other convenient features include providing power to low-consumption devices without the need for an external power supply and allowing many devices to be used without requiring manufacturer specific, individual device drivers to be installed.
The Mini-B, Micro-A, Micro-B , and Micro-AB connectors are used for smaller devices such as PDAs, mobile phones or digital cameras. The Standard-A plug is approximately 4 by 12 mm, the Standard-B approximately 7 by 8 mm, and the Micro-A and Micro-B plugs approximately 2 by 7 mm.

Wie gross ist das Mainboard denn? Welche Steckplätze hat es? Hier fehlt sehr viel Information im Gegensatz zu anderen Mainboards..?!?

Accepted answer

Grösse = ATX, 30.5 cm x 24.4 cm
3 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots (support x16/x0/x4 or x8/x8/x4 modes)
4 x PCIe 3.0 x1 slots
Ich empfehle die Herstellerseite, da ist alles aufgezählt: ch.msi.com/Motherboard/Z170... Einfach "Übersicht" anstatt "Tabelle" anwählen.

Z170A Gaming Pro Carbon (LGA 1151, Intel Z170, ATX)

Gutes Mainboard zu einem attraktiven Preis: Klare Empfehlung!

Dieses Mainboard funktioniert einwandfrei und kommt mit einer guten Ausstattung daher. Es hat viele Anschlussmöglichkeiten, wirkt äusserst solide verarbeitet (die PCIe Slots für die Grafikkarte(n) sind mit Stahlfassungen umhüllt), erkennt alle Komponenten (auch die M.2 SSD) ohne Probleme und ist ausserdem noch relativ günstig.
Ich kann dieses Mainboard sehr empfehlen. (Ich habe es gekauft, weil es bei TonyMacX86 als OS-X-kompatible gelistet ist und das ist auch wahr; es liess sich relativ leicht macOS installieren, mit den entsprechenden Boot-Loadern.)

In betrieb habe ich das Mainboard in folgender Konfiguration:

CPU: Intel Core i7 6700K
RAM: 16GB DDR4 RAM (Corsair Vengence)
SSD: 512GB M.2 SSD (PM961 OEM von Digitec)
SSD2: 2x SATAIII 480GB Mushkin Triactor SSD
GPU: Gigabyte G1 Gaming RX480 8GB
OS: Windows 10 Pro

Alles in allem super Board!

Super Board! Ich besitze dieses Board nun schon seit 6 Monaten und hatte bis jetzt keine grossen Probleme. Die Software ist auch ziemlich gut, leider hatte die ältere Software etwas rumgebuggt. Jetzt mit dem neuen Update funktioniert alles Top! Bis jetzt habe ich noch nicht übertaktet aber es sollte auch gut gehen. Die Phasen sind auch sehr gut. Leider sind die Anschlüsse etwas mikrig das hängt aber mit dem Z170 Chipsatz zusammen. Sonst alles Super!more

Alles in allem ein sehr gutes Mainboard zu einem guten Preis

Solides Mainboard mit vielen und auch zukunftsicheren Steckplätzen.
Das Aussehen ist einfach nur wunderschön, gerade in Kombination mit der RGB Beleuchtung. Aber damit kommen wir auch zum Kritikpunkt.
Die RGB Beleuchtung des Mainboards kann nur an der oberen Seite rechts im Bild angepasst werden. Das stört mich ein wenig weil die andere Beleuchtung dauerhaft rot leuchtet.more
