Introduction

 

In 2018 we saw the launch of a few mainstream chipsets, mainly the B360, H370, Q370, and Z390 chipsets. These chipsets offered a few newer features, but at the low-end of the spectrum, mainly B360, there was a lot that wasn't there.

So Intel went back and grabbed their previous generation chipset and adapted it for the 300 series, and called it B365. The B365 chipset does not have the integrated USB 3.1 (10Gb/s) or integrated WIFI MAC, but instead has eight more PCI-E 3.0 lanes, two more USB 3.0, and supports one more PCI-E M.2 slot compared to the B360 chipset.

 

While you can add USB 3.1 and WIFI, you can't add in eight extra PCI-E 3.0 lanes into the chipset, and so there is demand for more equipped B-series motherboards, and so we have our first B365 motherboard. Let's take a look!
