Information that You Need to Know about Motherboard

Published by:

Computer device, or now also commonly known as personal computer (PC), consists of two major parts. The first one is hardware and the second one is software. Hardware is the main part of computer systems which can be touch with your hand, such as monitor, keyboard, mouse, data storage and CPU. Without complete hardware that needs to be installed, your computer would not work properly. Different from hardware, software cannot be touched with your hand. Software could be a symbol, application, programs or idea. Like what has been stated before, computer consists of hardware and software. It means that we cannot use computer without only one of those things. We cannot use computer with only hardware or only software.

Usually, computer hardware consists of 10 main parts such as monitor, motherboard, CPU, RAM, power supply, expansion cards, hard disk drive, optical disk drive, keyboard and mouse. Except monitor, keyboard and mouse, all of the hardware components are located in one place named computer case. And among all of those components, motherboard becomes the most important part inside computer system. Without this component, your computer will not able to operate because motherboard is the place where CPU, RAM and the other peripherals get connected. Motherboard or also known as mainboard is a large rectangular printed circuit board. It is a place where you can find most crucial electronic components which support the computer system, such as memory, CPU and integrated peripherals. Integrated peripherals which can be integrated on the mainboard are disk controllers, integrated sound card, integrated graphics controller, IrDA controller, USB 2.0 controller and fast Ethernet network controller. Each type of motherboard has different specifications and also supports different processors. If you want to make sure your computer can perform better, you should not hesitate to upgrade your motherboard and also the other components.

When it works, motherboard is generally air cooled with heat sinks. If you put the wrong or insufficient cooling tools, it can cause damage to the internal parts of motherboard and it can also lead a crash to the computer system. Mainboard that you can find these days has various sizes depends on which company that produce the mainboard. In laptop or notebook computers, you will generally find a highly integrated motherboard which has smaller size or customize size. That is why the mainboard inside laptop computer is more difficult to upgrade and it cost more expensive when it’s needed to be repair. A little damage of motherboard’s components on the laptop, can lead you to a replacement of the entire motherboard. Besides insufficient cooling, motherboard can also become damaged from the other factors such as accidentally drop the computer case or laptop, electrical surge like lightning storm, temperature fluctuation and improperly manufactured power supply.
