Find a motherboard with Misco

Define your requirements and choose the right component

Whether you're taking your PC to the next level, or creating a new one from scratch, we have a full range of motherboards from top names such as Asus and Gigabyte. From ATX and Micro ATX boards for both Intel and AMD processors, to motherboards supporting DDR3 and DDR 4 memory slots, you’ll find the right foundations to build a computer that suits your needs and budget.

We also offer a full range of processors, CPUs and graphics cards at great low prices.

What motherboard should I buy?

If you have any difficulty finding the right motherboard, please contact our Technical Support Team on 0800 294 4516 or email us at techsupport@misco.co.uk.

Buying a motherboard with the right chipset

The circuit components within a motherboard that manage data flow between the processor, memory and peripherals, chipsets are designed to work with a specific family of microprocessors.

Defining what type of system you plan to build, whether that's for an office/graphics workstation/gaming PC, will help frame your chipset requirements, as well as the motherboard's form-factor, based on the components needed to meet your specification.

On our product pages, we identify the chipset type i.e. Intel Z170 Express; form factor for each motherboard - such as ATX - along with CPU socket compatibility; for example, AM3+, to help make choosing the right one simple.

Deciding on the right motherboard feature set

To build a decent home desktop system that's mainly used for business productivity applications, we'd recommend a motherboard with a provision for at least sixteen gigabytes of memory.

Even if, initially, a configuration of just half of this is used, choosing a board with four or more memory slots gives you the flexibility to add two additional RAM modules while still leaving two empty slots available for future upgrades.

Motherboards with integrated graphics output are fine for such a desktop, although a separate video card is a must for heavy duty multimedia or dedicated gaming - meaning an adequate number of PCI expansion slots (at least 4 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16) will be required. Additional PCI slots - usually up to six in total - can accommodate other types of I/O card, like internal Wi-Fi adapters and dedicated sound cards.

If you have existing external hard drives, or wish to daisy chain peripherals to your new PC, then high-speed USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt connections are a must, while SATA ports - which allow you to connect storage drives - should meet the SATA 6-gigabit standard, also known as SATA 3.0.

The very latest motherboards support SATA revision 3.2 (16 Gbit/s, 1969 MB/s) making them ideal for working in conjunction with high-speed SSD storage.

Overclocking your PC

Traditionally the preserve of the gaming community, even the biggest names in the business like Asus and Gigabyte recognise the need to offer overclocking support.

Asus, for example, make things easy with a real-time system that monitors and tweaks mode switches; either on the panel case, or via a separate user console (for extreme overclocking).

Even if you have no intention of overclocking, we do recommend motherboards with active fan management where, through enabling BIOS modes such as "Cool & Quiet" or with hardware-level controls, users can independently adjust both CPU and case fan speeds to different ambient temperatures, climate conditions and system loads.

Motherboard memory options for extra bandwidth and performance

Non-ECC, unbuffered DDR3 memory is now the standard for motherboards, with at least 4 DIMMs being the stock number of integrated memory slots. As memory prices have fallen in recent years, DDR4 memory is now an affordable option - meaning that our preferred choice are motherboards supporting this memory type.
