Is also called the "System Board," it is the main printed circuit board in an electronic device, which contains sockets or slots that accept additional boards.
The personal computer memory module also known as Random Access Memory (RAM) is a piece of hardware that allows stored data to be accessed randomly. Its main function is to store the data temporarily.
Connector is a three-row 15-pin DE-15 connector. The 15-pinVGA connector is found on many video cards, computer monitors, and high definition television sets.
This is the slot where you will insert the memory module or memory card. Some motherboard comes with two to four slots. Aside from the motherboard specification, looking at the memory slots would help you to know which type of memory card is compatible.
Is the portion where you can connect the power supply unit (PSU) cable connector. Motherboards come with different power supply controller. Old motherboard needs AT power supply unit while new motherboard needs ATX power supply
is also a chipset which contains the BIOS (Basic Input Output System). The BIOSis the built-in software that tells what a computer can do without accessing programs from a disk.
CONTROLLER FOR HARD DISK DRIVE AND OPTICAL DRIVEare the connectors to which you will insert an IDE cable (supplied with motherboard). IDE cables connect devices such as hard drive, CD Drives and DVD Drives.
Is a computer expansion card standard introduced by Intel in 2004, and currently is the most recent and high-performance standard for expansion cards that is generally available on modern personal computers. PCIe was designed to replace PCI, PCI-X, and AGP. Unlike previous PC expansion standards, rather than being a shared parallel bus, it is structured around point-to-point serial links called lanes.
SATA Stands For??
CMOS Stands For!!
IDE stands For!!
This socket has no holes, but instead pins are located from the CPU socket that makes contact with points on the underside of the CPU.
is a 6-pin Mini-DIN connector used for connecting some keyboards and mice to a PC compatible computer system.
Is a serial communication physical interface through which information transfers in or out one bit at a time (in contrast to a parallel port).
Also known as the Input/output Controller Hub (ICH).Chipset that allows the CPU to communicate with PCI slots, PCI-Express x 1 slots (expansion cards), SATA connectors (hard drives, optical drives), USB ports (USB devices), Ethernet ports and on-board audio.
