Final Thoughts & Conclusion
BIOSTAR’s H310MHD PRO has a high-performance spirit trapped in an entry-level board. We saw impressive performance out of system memory that rivals higher end Z370 boards, and overall it scored well in our benchmark runs. We did see a tiny bit of the limits of the VRM, but who sticks a flagship CPU in an entry-level motherboard? You can’t overclock it anyway, so not much point. With a more sensible CPU selection, even the i7-8700 (non-K) you wouldn’t ever see the limits. Feature-wise, the H310MHD PRO checks every box but one, M.2 support. The place is there on the board, it just never made it into the final specs. With the proliferation of SATA and PCIe M.2 devices for competitive prices, we really feel this lack of support is the only thing keeping a good board from being great.
Good Job BIOSTAR!
