4.maximum memory size

32GB

The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.

Best

Asus Z10PE-D16 WS

5.Supports ECC memory
Gigabyte GA-7PESH2

Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.

Connectors

1.fan headers

4

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.

2.USB 3.0 ports (through expansion)

0

The motherboard has USB 3.0 headers, which are pin connections that you can connect additional USB ports to.

Best

Asus X79 Deluxe

3.USB 3.0 ports

0

More USB 3.0 ports allow you to connect more devices to your computer that support USB 3.0. USB 3.0 is an improved version of USB 2.0 which offers faster transfer rates.

Best

Asus Z87-Pro

4.SATA 3 connectors

2

SATA is an interface used to connect mass storage devices such as hard drives and Blu-ray drives. SATA 3 has a native transfer rate of 6 Gbit/s, which is twice as fast as SATA 2, the previous revision. This is particularly useful if you use an SSD as it can perform at higher speeds.

5.has a HDMI output
Gigabyte GA-7PESH2

Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.

6.RJ45 ports

3

RJ-45 ports are used for LAN (Local Area Network) connections. With more ports you can achieve increased bandwidth across a LAN, or connect to multiple networks. It also has the added benefit of not losing connection to the network if one fails.

Expansion slots

1.PCIe 2.0 x16 slots

2

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.

Best

Asus P9X79-E WS

2.PCIe 3.0 x16 slots

2

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.

Best

3.PCIe x8 slots

2

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 ‘x8’ represents the number of lanes it has, with more lanes supporting higher data transfer rates.

Best

Storage

1.Supports RAID 5
Gigabyte GA-7PESH2

RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disks into one unit. RAID 5 stripes the data across the drives, giving increased performance compared to a single disk. It also provides greater data security as if one drive fails, the data will still be accessible from another due to the use of parity.

2.Supports RAID 1
Gigabyte GA-7PESH2

RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disks into one unit. RAID 1 mirrors the data across the drives. This gives you greater data security as if one drive fails, the data will still be accessible from another.

3.Supports RAID 0
Gigabyte GA-7PESH2

RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disks into one unit. RAID 0 stripes the data across the drives, giving increased performance and capacity compared to a single drive. The drawback is that if one drive fails, you lose the data on all drives.

4.Supports RAID 10 (1+0)
Gigabyte GA-7PESH2

RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disks into one unit. RAID 10 (1+0) stripes and mirrors the data across the drives. It gives increased capacity and performance compared to a single disk. It also provides greater data security as if one drive fails, the data will still be accessible from another.
