Mother board

The motherboard is the main circuit board inside your PC, it connects your CPU, RAM, disk drives and graphics / sound cars.


There is no moving parts in the motherboard so it isn't something that will need replacing every couple months. An easy way to describe the motherboard would be like say it looks like a city and they have electrical pathways for the highways and streets.

If you have ever opened a machine that has had an excessive amount of dust in it around the fan, the motherboard fan will be similar to that but a lot less dust.


The motherboard is made up of many different components and they are all fixed in to the motherboard so you cant take them out and replace them. You don't even have to clean the motherboard because there is a cooling fan which will basically do it for you.
