Before we get into what you should be looking for in a motherboard, lets have a brief look at the more important of its functions: • CPU and memory – the motherboard provides sockets which enable these devices to be connected to the system.

Therefore, you need to consider the following factors: Memory FSB CPUs used to have an FSB and to get the best system performance it was necessary to match it with the FSB of the memory as closely as possible. This is no longer the case though, due to more efficient technologies such as Intel’s QuickPath Interconnect and Direct Media Interface, which have replaced the FSB in CPUs. As a result, memory FSB in relation to the CPU is no longer an issue. If you install a memory module rated at a speed higher than the motherboard and/or CPU are designed to handle, the memory will still work but only at the motherboard’s or CPU’s maximum FSB.
