Asus B85M-G Plus: 31 facts and highlights

1. RAM speed

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

2. maximum memory size

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

3. 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.

4. 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.
