Asus B150M-K D3: 31 facts and highlights

1. RAM speed

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
1600MHz
ASRock Z270 Taichi: 21233MHz

2. overclocked RAM speed

The motherboard supports overclocking the RAM to a higher speed. By increasing the speed at which the memory runs, you can boost the performance of your computer.
1866MHz
ASRock X299 OC Formula: 4600MHz

3. Signal-to-Noise ratio (DAC)

When an audio chipset converts a digital audio signal to an analogue one (for example when playing an MP3 on your speakers), a certain amount of noise is added. A higher SNR means that there is less added noise and the audio quality is better.
97dB
Gigabyte G1.Sniper 5: 123dB

4. maximum memory size

The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
32GB
Asus Z10PE-D16 WS: 1024GB

5. fan headers

Fan headers are connection points on the motherboard that cooling fans can be connected to. Fans can also be connected straight to the power supply, but when connected to the motherboard you gain much finer control over them through software.

6. PCIe 3.0 x16 slots

PCIe slots allow you to connect peripherals to the motherboard, most commonly graphics cards but also others such as sound cards and network cards. The ‘x16’ represents the number of lanes it has, with more lanes supporting higher data transfer rates. PCIe 3.0 offers higher transfer rates than PCIe 2.0, and can give increased performance.
