Slide the latest PC processors under a microscope and you'll discover transistors measuring just 32nm across. So ludicrously tiny, in other words, that 500nm would fit inside the width of a human hair.Thus, enquiring minds might wonder why anyone...

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...

The great thing about these systems is that they use very little power. You don’t have to worry about it tripping any breakers or shutting down your local power grid. When coupled with a good Core i3 or i5 Clarksdale processor, this little...

Revisiting the GIGABYTE GA-H55N-USB3 Because I was contemplating the GIGABYTE GA-H55N-USB3 mainboard for a small PC serving up basic Web functionality at the workbench, I hunted around for reviews on it. The number of publications that have tested...

These little motherboards always offer heaps of fun and features don't they ? It's just good to see how much stuff you can chuck into something so small. The end results as such was impressive. Though the boards are not the cheapest at roughly...

Another great product from Gigabyte has passed through our strenuous benchmarking trials. It has stood up to the toughest of tests and emerged as an excellent choice for an HTPC. Features such as USB3, Gigabit Ethernet, and its form-factor make it an...

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...

The Mini-ITX form factor has long been a viable platform for low-power desktops and home-theater PCs, but it's never been particularly friendly to high-performance gaming rigs. Today, however, we've proven that you can build one heck of a midget...

The H55n-USB3 has all of the features you would expect from a full size motherboard, all packed into the Mini-ITX motherboard. If you are looking to build a small form factor system that is capable of gaming, this is one of the best choices on the...

This is the world’s first USB 3.0 m-ITX motherboard. That is impressive in its own right. After you get past the theoretical 5.0gbps speeds, the board doesn’t disappoint. HW Bot held a special Overclocking Competition centered around this...

A couple of months ago, I took a look at a similar board from Gigabyte called the H55M-USB3, and overall, I was impressed. The board was full-featured, proved to be a good overclocker, and was priced right. In the end, I awarded the board one of our...

They say that big things come in small packages and that can’t be anymore the case when it comes to the Gigabyte H55N-USB3. The H55N offers you most of what a full-sized motherboard does as you will get a PCIe with 16x bandwidth for that high-end...

Mini-ITX motherboards are typically designed for low power consumption and cherished for their compact form factor. So what happens when you replace a low powered system with an Intel H55? Basically you get something extremely small with an option...

Gigabyte positions this board as an ideal board for home theater PC. This is true, but the board also has enough features to use it as a high-end system with a fast cpu, enough memory and a dedicated video card.Compared to the MSI H55M-E33 the...

The performance of the GIGABYTE H55N-USB3 motherboard was outstanding. It didn't only perform better than the competition in the majority of the tests, but also has great overclocking capabilities not seen with other manufacturers. The board fully...

Are mini and micro-sized motherboards the trendy segment nowadays? It would seem that way, from the many vendors that are shrinking their boards down to these form factors. Even Intel's high-end X58 Express has had this treatment, like the ASUS...
