    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 

    Explanation
    The power supply controller is responsible for regulating and distributing power to the various components of the motherboard. It ensures that the correct amount of power is supplied to each component, preventing damage from over or under voltage. The AC connector is where the power supply unit (PSU) cable is connected to provide power to the motherboard. Different motherboards require different types of power supply units, with older motherboards needing AT power supply units and newer ones requiring ATX power supply units.

     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.

    Explanation
    CMOS stands for Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor. It is a type of chip that is commonly used in computers to store information about the system's hardware configuration. In this context, CMOS is mentioned as a chipset that contains the BIOS (Basic Input Output System). The BIOS is a crucial component of a computer as it provides the necessary instructions for the computer to start up and perform basic functions. Therefore, CMOS is the correct answer as it accurately describes the chipset that contains the BIOS.

    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.

    Explanation
    PCIe, also known as PCI-E or PCI-Express, is a computer expansion card standard introduced by Intel in 2004. It is currently the most recent and high-performance standard for expansion cards available on modern personal computers. PCIe was designed to replace older standards such as PCI, PCI-X, and AGP. Unlike its predecessors, PCIe uses point-to-point serial links called lanes instead of a shared parallel bus. This allows for faster and more efficient data transfer between the expansion card and the computer's motherboard.

    SATA Stands For??

    Explanation
    The correct answer is Serial Advanced Technology Attachment. SATA stands for Serial Advanced Technology Attachment, which is a computer bus interface that connects host bus adapters to mass storage devices such as hard disk drives and optical drives. It is a standard interface for connecting storage devices in modern computers. The incorrect answer, Serial Advance Technology Attachment, is a misspelling of the correct term.

    CMOS Stands For!!

    Explanation
    CMOS stands for Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor. It is a technology used in the fabrication of integrated circuits, particularly microprocessors, memory chips, and other digital logic circuits. CMOS technology uses a combination of p-type and n-type metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) to create complementary pairs. This allows for low power consumption, high noise immunity, and the ability to operate at both high and low voltage levels. CMOS technology is widely used in modern electronic devices due to its efficiency and versatility.

    IDE stands For!!

    Explanation
    IDE stands for Integrated Drive Electronics. This term refers to the technology used in computer hard drives to connect them to the motherboard. IDE allows for the transfer of data between the hard drive and the computer system. It was a common interface for hard drives in the past, but has been largely replaced by newer technologies such as SATA.

    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.

    Explanation
    The given answer, LGA (Land Grid Array), is correct. LGA is a type of CPU socket design where instead of having holes, it has pins located on the socket that make contact with points on the underside of the CPU. This design allows for better electrical conductivity and improved heat dissipation compared to other socket types. The abbreviation "N/A" is not applicable in this context, as it does not provide any additional relevant information.

    Is a serial communication physical interface through which information transfers in or out one bit at a time (in contrast to a parallel port).

    Explanation
    A serial port is a type of physical interface that allows for the transfer of information one bit at a time, as opposed to a parallel port which transfers multiple bits simultaneously. It is commonly used for connecting devices such as modems, printers, and mice to a computer. Serial ports transmit data sequentially, making them slower compared to parallel ports but more reliable for long-distance communication. They use a single wire to transmit data and typically require less hardware compared to parallel ports, making them a cost-effective option for many applications.

    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.

    Explanation
    The Southbridge Chipset, also known as the Input/output Controller Hub (ICH), is responsible for allowing the CPU to communicate with various components of a computer system. It facilitates communication between the CPU and peripheral devices such as PCI slots, PCI-Express x1 slots, SATA connectors, USB ports, Ethernet ports, and on-board audio. The Southbridge Chipset plays a crucial role in coordinating data transfer and ensuring seamless connectivity between the CPU and these peripherals.
