A motherboard connects the computer's hardware components, such as the processor (CPU), memory (RAM), hard drive, and visual card. Motherboards come in a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate various computer kinds and sizes.
Each motherboard is designed to function with specific processors and memory, therefore not all CPUs and memory types are compatible. Hard drives, on the other hand, are typically ubiquitous and function with most motherboards, independent of type or manufacturer.
The majority of the hardware and computer peripherals connect to the motherboard, which is placed inside the computer chassis. The motherboard is the largest circuit board in tower computers and is located on the left or right side of the tower.
