H110M or B250M for G4560?

Hello,

I own a g4560 and read somewhere that a b250m can have better perfomance for the cpu compared to the h110m. Should I give 15 dollars more for the b250m mobo or tell the shop to update the bios of h110m and buy this?

  1. you've already saved so much with the cpu so use that to get the better mobo w/ the better chipset more ram and upgradability options down the road you thank your self later in terms of upgrade path

    There is no noticeable performance difference between the H110 and the B250 boards. The main difference of these two chipsets would be the number of PCIe lanes and connectors/ports.

    B250 boards usually offer 6x SATA ports in addition to at least 1x M.2 socket. Total USB ports that can be provided would be up to 12x. This is due to the number of PCIe lanes the B250 socket can provide (which is 12x PCIe3.0 lanes).

    H110 board usually offer only 4x SATA ports (usually no M.2 sockets). Total USB ports that can be provided would be up to 10x. This is due to the number of PCIe lanes the H110 socket can provide (which is 6x PCIe2.0 lanes).

    It depends now on how many connectors you would be needing (plus the fact that you would need to update the BIOS of the H110 to be able to support the G4560 7th-gen CPU).

  3. I want to use the same processor and don't want to upgrade bios. I have been looking at different mobos and cant decide since I have zero clue which one is better and why. Does someone know any important differences or is it all the same? Is there any other that is better? I am making an ITX build (thermaltake versa h15, g4560, rx480)

    MSI B250M PRO-VD Intel B250
    Gigabyte GA-B250M-DS3H Intel B250 So.1151 Dual Channel DDR mATX
    ASRock B250M Pro4 Intel B250 So.1151 Dual Channel

    I believe that the differences you will notice will be in the colour and design of the motherboard, in the ram,pci-e slots, in the bios and the back ports. I would personally go with the gigabyte which has an hdmi output, 4 ram slots and is cheaper than the as rock (7 dollars cheaper). But if you're building an ITX build, then you need for sure an ITX motherboard cause those 3 motherboards you sent are m-atx

    B250m mobo has support for 2400mhz ram while the H110M supports only 2133mhz.
    Doesn't that create difference in performance?
    Also the Intel core i3 7100 requires b250m mobo?
    I am asking it coz i own intel core i3 7100
