Intel's H570 chipset is the mid-range option for more budget-focused motherboards. Usually, you'd choose a Z590 to get the most out of the best CPU for your custom PC, but an H570 motherboard can be a good choice if you don't plan to go all-out with an Intel Core i9 processor. Here are our picks for best Intel H570 motherboards.
