  1. G4600 is KabyLake, so any H110 will most likely need BIOS update before it can be used with this CPU. Either make sure you get it already upgraded by seller, or get different board (with B250 chipset).
  2. itf you're on a budget its best to go with a B250 board because the chances are slim a 7th gen CPU like that will work out of the box with a H110 board.

    the major concern with that is if it doesn't have the correct BIOS then you will not be able to get the motherboard to boot to update the BIOS and would have to return the board and get another one that supports them, bring it to a local computer shop, or buy a 6th gen CPU just to perform the update to get it to work with the CPU you originally wanted
  3. the msi h110 gaming/grenade r now updated to run kabylake.
    try to go for corsair cxm 450 or seasonic s12II 430
    the 1050ti is better than 460 imo
    if the hynix ram is a really good real, then fine. or u can look for 2400mhz ram and 2x4gb if u r ok with 8gb.
    as for case, try deepcool tessaract or fractal design core 2300 or masterbox 5

    i'm sure any 1xxx series boards that have been stocked for the last month or so do but it always depends on the popularity of some boards and you know the majority are getting 2xxx series boards if they are going for a 7th or 6th gen intel CPU

    It is much safer to assume they are not ... as you don't even know in which country OP buys the mobo.
  6. yeah, thats y i said 'now' ;)
    but i guess its better to be safe.

    P.S.: 1 of the main reasons i prefer h110 for low budget is it can be had for as cheap as $50 in some places...

    so which one of B250 boards surely support any processor i would like to buy? there are asrock, gygabyte and msi ones. im thinking about g4600, i3-6100, 7100, 7350k(not going to overclock tho), i5-6500.
  8. All B250 boards should support any CPUs you listed out-of-box.
  9. hey guys i came to conclusion that G4600 is not futureproof CPU and it would be a wise choice to wait and get money for i5-6500 which i hope to last like 5 years before another upgrade. so here is my question what motherboard should i get that will support something worthy for upgrade in the future after i5-6500? (please note that im still tight in budget so try to suggest as cheap as possible) as far as i know gygabyte H110m-a can support this CPU, but im not sure if it will work with the CPU for future upgrade. Please state your opinion

    Since 6500 is SkyLake, it will work with H110 without problem. Future upgrade - right now H110, after a BIOS update (which you could do since you would have 6500), can support i7-7700 (k version too but without overclocking). And we don't know if there will be any new and better LGA 1151 CPUs in future - only Intel knows.

    nah, i don't think ill buy i7-7700 in the future it will be not worth for upgrade. i'm pretty sure in 4-5 years there will be CPU on the same socket with better performance and less cost than i7-7700 and since LGA 1151 is DDR4 i do really hope it is very future proof invest. thanks for the reply it helps a lot now since i know H110m will work with i5-6500 and it's extremely cheap. all that's left is to wait my GTX 2060 ^^
