Due to the huge price increases for DDR4 memory I thought this Biostar mATX motherboard could be of interest to those wanting to build a budget PC as it will take cheaper DDR3L (low voltage DDR3 1.35V) memory instead of DDR4 and supports Skylake and Kaby Lake processors.

The motherboard dimensions are slightly smaller than a regular mATX board but it still includes a PCIe x16 slot for a graphics card and another PCIe x1 slot.

Price collected from Scan is £40.99 or add £5.48 for delivery if you don't qualify for free postage.

Not really the same at all - there's virtually no performance difference between DDR3 and DDR4 so you don't lose anything by using this board.

Thanks
nice board for price hot
Very cheap price but does the fact it states DDR3L mean it wouldn't work with regular DDR3 e.g. from past builds, like from a Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge or Haswell build? If not I don't see a lot of point really as those upgrading would still have to buy new memory, maybe a bit cheaper but still seems daft buying into an old standard as this will almost certainly be last last board to support any flavour of DDR3 so you would only be delaying the inevitable.

If it supports all DDR3 it would be awesome...

Skylake and Kaby Lake cpus only support low voltage DDR3L. I have a Haswell desktop PC at home which happens to have DDR3L memory so I could re-use that if I wanted.

What's the current recommended price/performance processor for this board? Intend to use with a Palit Jetstream GTX970, but more for multiple displays (Display Port), not gaming. (Saves time researching, too many options. Thanks for the responses).

If you don't need i5 level performance then this is equivalent to an i3:

If you want an i5 then CeX have an i5 7400 for £100.

Fair point, I would find it hard to justify a DDR3L board now though

yeah basically no point
it's like buying a board that supports USB2.0 over USB3.1 (aka 3.0 gen 2) just because it supports USB2.0 only
well not exactly like that, but you get my point

no idea why people would waste money on obsolete hardware whose price:performance is poor

Thanks for sharing @brookheather there is a lot of MB for the money and is cost effective way to build something for those that cannot get their hands on any hyped up price DDR4+ :-)
Make sure you have ddr3l as normal ddr3 has too high a voltage for the integrated memory controller on the cpus
Just a little extra info regarding Intel atm, the CPUs (even the ones just released) are vulnerable to an attack known as "Spectre/Meltdown" . The fix for this comes in the form of a BIOS update on the motherboard you will have to do yourself BUT because of the nature of it, you will take up to a -10% performance hit. *ref: hexus.net/tec…ix/ there have been 32 lawsuits filed against them so far since they knew about this in June 2017 yet still released new CPUs vulnerable to it and sold shares: hexus.net/bus…el/. AMD are supposed to have no performance hit currently but also had a BIOS update - they're still below on single CPU core performance in most cases but are now closer on the usual bang per buck
If I paired this with the G4560 and 8gb ram would it play 4K video smoothly?

my acer revo is showing its age and is struggling with 1080p these days. Looking to upgrade the TV to 4K so want a HTPC for that.

What, people still buy them pre-assembled in the shops? lul

This looks like it could mine bitcorn quite well.
Isn't this an ITX board
Would this not be ideal for someone who likes to buy the previous generation? I'm still running a 7200 C2duo with 4gb ddr2 ram in Win10 for basic browsing and word processing. This seems to be a decent step up whilst avoiding the pricy ddr4 route.

Micro ATX by the description and a quick look at the thumbnail.
If anyone has seen any 1151 ddr3 motherboards with 4 ram slots, kindly let me know...just looking for an excuse not to buy ddr4!
Scan price has now dropped to only £32.48.
