the ?8? chipsets are current, for the Haswell family processors (core 
I?-4???).   The ?7? chips are for the prior Ivy Bridge, core i?-3???.    
I believe the 6 is for the Sandy Bridge, a couple years ago, core i?-xxx 
(3 digit numbers).   My Ivy Bridge Core I5-3670 is in a Z77 based 

the Zxx chipsets are the top line, have the best performance, and most 
ports and features.   The H and Q are budget/economy versions, with 
fewer IO channels, lower performance.
