I honestly didn't expect a lot from a HTPC-marketed board of this size, but Gigabyte pleasantly surprised me with the GA-H55N-USB3. Despite its small size, Gigabyte has managed to pack a ton of features into this board. The little brother of the...-

The Gigabyte H55N-USB3 differs from other mini-ITX motherboard we have seen so far, not only because several motherboards that use this form factor bring a low consuption (and thus, low performance) CPU soldered on it, but because the H55N-USB3 have a...-

We'd like to thank our friends at Gigabyte for providing the H55N-USB3 for our evaluation today. I've been testing mini ITX motherboards from a variety of vendors including Zotac and VIA to name a few, but never I've tested one with the...-

For an LGA1156 board, the Gigabyte H55N-USB3's energy efficiency when idle and on CPU load is smack dab in the middle, only impressive if you ignore the boards from Intel which apparently run only partially on electricity with the slack being picked...-

We have found the Gigabyte GA-H55N-USB3 mainboard to have lots of advantages and but a few insignificant drawbacks. Although compact, it is cleverly designed and has nearly all the functionality of its full-size counterparts. We must acknowledge that...-
