Will a H110I mini itx mobo run games slower than a z170?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am doing a mini itx build and trying to get by on a budget mini itx rig, i got a gtx 1080 new and sealed for 599 free ship no tax, im keeping lot of my old parts like psu and such...


but will a H110I make games run slower? also the motherboard says DDR4 memory boost and standard memory is 2133... will my 3000 DDR4 run in it? or do I need Z170 for that?

Most likely not, but the 3000Mhz memory is a different story. Technically its not supported on H110, there's a big chance it might not work.

Imo, for a build that high end, I'd just suck it up and spend that 50 $/€ more on a Z170 board.

Yeah I know, but then I might as well suck it up even more and just buy a 6600k as well, lol.

Then I might as well suck it up even more, and get a watercooler to fit in the mini ITX rig, lol.. its a rabbit hole... I could have got by without the 1080 gpu, but I couldn't pass up such a good price on it. I'm honestly ok with the ram running lower speed and the dual core. For now anyway. can always sell and upgrade later I guess

from an actual performance it'll depend on the build quality and overall layout of the motherboard.
it is the same with any other motherboard regardless of chipset, they often have different performance and capability.
build quality such as VRM quality and count, parts used (e.g. NIC, audio, etc.) and others can affect overall performance of the board.
where as the layout of the motherboard can affect the stability and reliability of the board, things like data-path crosstalk for example can lead to noise issues.

now as for H110 chipset specifically, it'll have some minor restrictions.
like PCI-E bandwidth (less lane count to be precise), DRAM compatibility and I/O count (number of USB ports and others).

Thanks everyone, I decided to keep the laptop in my sig rig and not do this mini-itx build, just going to get a refund on the gtx 1080, sadly, lol.
