Hi, I would say that both are very similar in that regard, but the H170 "Value" build is on the recommended hardware list (buyers guide) and would likely be the safer bet. I am using dual channel (2x8GB) in that machine without issues.Hi mots,
I plan to build new hackintosh. From both of your build, which is easier to install and less problem to solve? H170 or H110?
1) Skylake H170 "Value" build GA-H170-Gaming 3 | i5 6500 | GTX 970
2) Skylake H110 "Econo" build Other | i3 6100 | GTX 950
I think I also read that you have problem with dual channel RAM in other thread, did you able to solve it yet?
Appreciate your input.
From my research, the dual channel RAM issues I was having with the "Econo" build are very likely the RAM module I was trying to use. I found others having the same issues and they replaced their RAM with another brand and had better luck. It may not even be the brand, but the module I had in my hand. If you do some searching, you will find the threads I am referring to. That said, I am nowhere near 100% sure that the MB/H110 didn't have something to do with it. It only has two slots and it is a bit finicky when trying to use them both. I do have 16GB in the "Econo" machine now, but it is just using a single 16GB module.
The video cards are of the same complexity on both machines (very simple). You will just need to use the Nvidia driver for the specific version/revision of the OS you are using. It has to be updated every time the OS is updated, but it is very simple to do.
