Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2V


$100.00 Released March, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Good instruction manual - provides clear English documentation. Suitable for a mid-range gaming machine - supports up to Core i7 processors and one PCI-E graphics card. Overclockable - has a fair amount of options in the BIOS.

The Cons:No IDE connections - users won't be able to reuse an old CD/DVD drive. Lacks the latest connectivity options - no USB 3.0 or SATA 6Gbps support. Only 2 DIMM slots - future memory upgrades will be difficult.

The Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2V is a low-cost motherboard for Intel LGA1156 format CPUs with a Micro ATX form factor. This is similar to the original Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2, but includes improved support for faster processors and onboard video.

The 16GB of memory can now be scaled up to 2200 MHz, and when a CPU with integrated graphics processing is used a D-Sub and DVI port are available for use. As with the Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2, however, the PCI-E slots are not scaled high enough to enable ATI CrossFireX support. A 10/100/1000 Ethernet connection is built in, and there are 6 SATA connectors for various drives.
