How Motherboards Are Made: A Gigabyte Factory Tour
How Motherboards Are Made: A Gigabyte Factory Tour - PCSTATS
Abstract: PCSTATS takes you on a guided tour of Gigabyte's Motherboard Factory in Taiwan. There's a lot to producing and testing a single motherboard; a mind-boggling host of automated machines, people and processes. Gigabyte has several other factories in Taiwan and mainland China that each manufacture motherboards, videocards, and other products.

Buffing and Cleaning

The almost-completed motherboards are manually buffed and brushed to smooth down the solder joints at the bottom of the motherboard and remove any loose solder. The masked workers who do this thankless job are confined in little cubicles of plastic to prevent stray particles from contaminating the assembly lines.

Final Assembly

In the next series of steps, workers adds the last couple of necessary components onto the board. Any required chipset heatsinks are added here as well as the plastic CPU retention bracket, and motherboard battery. When this is complete, the boards are sent off to Quality Assurance for testing.
