Do motherboards come with Bluetooth?
Some do, some don’t! Most motherboards that also have built-in WiFi also have Bluetooth. If you want to buy one, read the specs and features, if it mentions built-in WiFi you’re probably good to go.
If you already have a motherboard and if yours doesn’t have WiFi built in, it certainly won’t have Bluetooth, we have never found a motherboard with Bluetooth and without WiFi.
If you want to know whether or not your motherboards have it built in, or if you want to know how to properly identify motherboards with it before you buy them, read on as we’ll answer all these questions.
Why Bluetooth is important on your motherboard
Bluetooth is an important part of any computer as it enables wireless data transfer. This means you can do things like connect a phone or tablet or even a PS4/5 controller to your computer wirelessly without using cables, which is especially useful if the device doesn’t have available ports and/or charging options.
If you want to be able to use this kind of feature on your motherboard, make sure it comes with built-in support before you buy it!
How do I know if my motherboard has Bluetooth?
Most motherboards that come with Wi-Fi also have Bluetooth capabilities, so it’s a good idea to check your motherboard’s specs and see if it has built-in Wi-Fi. If not, you may be able to purchase an external module that plugs into one of the USB ports on your board.
You can tell if your motherboard has this capability by looking at your product’s specifications. Information about this can usually be found in the product packaging or on a sticker on the device itself. If you’re not sure, there’s an easy way to find out!
Go on Google and type in something like, “[Brand] † [Product Name] Bluetooth.” It will usually show you the manufacturer of the board along with all its specs and features. You may even find a YouTube video showing exactly where to find the transmitter on your motherboard and how to connect and use!
What are some motherboards with Bluetooth and WiFi?
It depends on which chipset you go for, you can refer to some of our other articles which will tell you some good motherboards for each chipset, such as the Z590 chipset† B560 chipset† Z490 chipset and so forth.
We recommend that you check the products from:
These three brands are known as the best for their build quality and performance: MSI, Asus, and Gigabyte. All 3 brands featured on this list offer a wide variety of different boards in different price ranges from beginner to professional! Be sure to research what you need before buying so you can be confident in your purchase decision. It will pay off in the long run.
So how do I know where my motherboard’s Bluetooth transmitter is?
The location of your Bluetooth chip depends on the type of motherboard you have. The first thing you need to know to find the chip is what type of motherboard you have. This is usually written on the box your computer came in, or if it’s a new device there may be stickers indicating which chipset the board uses, otherwise check the manual that came with your motherboard or google the name of the motherboard and find the manufacturer, sometimes they have online manuals.
And of course make sure your board actually has it built in, otherwise you won’t find it anywhere.
How do I get Bluetooth on my PC if it isn’t built-in?
If your motherboard doesn’t have this capability, don’t worry, you’re in luck! Adding it is a fairly simple process. All you need to do is follow the steps below:
– Buy a USB Bluetooth dongle that plugs into one of your computer’s free USB ports
– Install the necessary drivers for any software updates needed on your current system or add them manually if they are not included in the installation package
– Connect and pair devices using the method that works best (usually by pressing “Pair” on both)
– There is now an option called “Bluetooth Settings” under Devices and Printers when you open Windows Explorer. From here, all settings can be adjusted, such as how long data remains.
