Intel B250/H270 motherboards round-up: affordable basis for Kaby Lake

Seventh generation Core-boards without empty bank account

Connectivity: USB

Considering Intel still does not support USB 3.1 through their chipsets, the new USB-standard is not commonly found on these budget boards. Especially cheaper B250-boards may lack this feature. Most boards do offer four USB 3.0-connectors at the back, but there are exceptions. ASUS for example opts for a second internal header instead of regular connectors on a lot of models. An internal USB 3.1-header is not found on any of these boards.
