Mwave offers motherboards with all current socket types Intel currently use for their CPUs - LGA1151 (Celeron, Pentium, i3, i5, i7, i9 and Xeon), LGA2066 (i7 & i9) and LGA3647 (Xeon) - from a range of brands such as Asus, MSI, Gigabyte and ASRock. Depending on your needs Mwave can offer Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX, ATX and E-ATX form factor Intel motherboards.

 

Which motherboard do I need?

First, you will need to decide on the chipset (which relates to your CPU and budget). LGA1151 motherboards use more mainstream chipsets, while LGA2066 uses high-end chipsets and the server grade LGA3647 uses different chipsets again. Z390 motherboards usually offer the most features over other mainstream chipsets. Along with providing support for the high-end LGA2066 CPUs, X299 motherboards offers extra features such as 3 M.2 slots and extra RAM support over mainstream chipsets. If you plan to use a Xeon Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum you will need server grade chipset (C621) and a motherboard such as the Asus WS C621E SAGE Dual Socket. This motherboard has the benefit of being able to run 2 LGA3647 CPUs for extra processing power for use in workstations or servers.

 

Do I need Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX or ATX?

This will depend on the size of your case. Typically, a motherboard smaller than your case will still fit but you may sacrifice some upgradeability and features. It is generally recommended to buy a motherboard that best fits your case.

 

Will buying a more expensive motherboard give me better performance?

The short answer, it depends. If you are wanting to use fast RAM and overclock your Intel ‘K’ CPU then you will most likely see an improvement in your overclocking results when compared to a cheaper motherboard.
