BIOSTAR H110MDE offers affordable performance; cheap MATX motherboard for less than $60!
BIOSTAR has been steadily churning out affordable motherboard options for DIY builders who are on a tight budget. Priced at just $54.99 (~RM215.18), the BIOSTAR H110MDE is a great option for those who want a compact and affordable motherboard.
The H110 chipset used here supports the Intel 6th and 7th Generation Intel Core processors, which are still potent enough for some serious gaming. Two DIMM slots supporting up to 32GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM and a single full-speed PCIe 3.0 x16 means that you can use this cheap motherboard as the base of your high performance gaming rig.
Connectivity wise you are getting 2 USB 3.1 Gen1 and 2 USB 2.0 ports at the back, along with a USB 3.1 Gen1 and 2 USB 2.0 headers. 4 SATA 3 6Gbps allows you to pack your system with plenty of storage. There is no built-in WiFi on this MATX board, but you do get Gigabit LAN thanks to the Realtek RTL8111G.
For $54.99, the BIOSTAR H110MDE is a great choice for budget builds based on Skylake or Kaby Lake CPUs. BIOSTAR is even offering a free copy of BullGuard Antivirus for even greater savings for the DIY builder.
Pokdepinion: If I am going to build a no-frills Skylake/Kaby Lake rig now, this would definitely be at the top of my shortlist.
