Whats a Motherboard is?? The motherboard is sometimes also called as the Mainboard, baseboard or system board or logic board. It is the main PCB found in general purpose microcomputers and other expandable systems. As the growth of the computer is going at a high scale the performance of the system is also moving at the same speed. All it is possible due to this motherboard. People often say and get confused that Motherboard would increase the performance of my system but the real reason behind this stays in this article where you would understand – What Motherboard your system holds and if you are Window 10 user how is you performance boosting.
Let’s hold on a second. Have you ever checked the paper that you get while purchasing your system? No!! you all get the information in those paper that you always need to check and know about the computer PCB. Unlike a backplane, a motherboard usually contains significant sub-systems such as the central processor, the chipset’s input/output and memory controllers, interface connectors, and other components integrated for general purpose use. It’s very important to know each and every detail of your system. If you have lost those papers and now you are inquisitive to know what is your Motherboard number. STOP! Don’t be smart and open your system.
Check Out these Methods to Get Information About Your Motherboard
Method 1 – Command Prompt
You can find out your motherboard model number just by typing a single command in cmd or terminal. Here is what you need to do:
- Run command prompt as administrator in Windows PC. In the command terminal type and hit enter this command:
wmic baseboard get product, manufacturer, version, serialnumber
In return, it will show you all the information you asked about motherboard above in no seconds just like shown below:
Method 2- System Information utility
The other method is that you can check computer motherboard model number from System Information utility in Windows. For that you need to enter Msinfo32 in search bar.
Click to open System information desktop app.
What Does this Number Tell You About
Don’t look on Numbers, but on the specs. We mean, that sometimes it’s important to understand the number. Let’s get an example:
Here: ASUS Sabertooth Z77 = 3th gen Intel core processor (i7 3770, i5 3570, etc) with socket LGA 1155/1156. BUT an ASUS Sabertooth Z87 = 4th gen Intel core Processor( i7 4770, i5 4670, etc) With socket LGA 1150 (5 less pins, so a 3th gen won’t even physically fit in the socket on the Mobo)
So, sometimes you need to read the numbers, sometimes not. Some have USB 3.0, some not, some have PCI-E 3th gen, some not. So you need to know the specs to know what Number is better than the other.
The best part to know your Motherboard model number get you to know – How to change you Motherboard with time and performance. Because the chipset increase the load on system increase but motherboard get more port to tackle them. So, understand the motherboard is very important!!
