Intel BOXDH61WWB3


$76.00 Released March, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:A very cheap option for those looking for an motherboard that supports Sandy Bridge processors. Its integrated Intel HD graphics capabilities make it an excellent choice for HTPC builders. Decent RAM support for such a basic board--up to 8GB (4GB + 4GB) up to 1333MHz.

The Cons:Design is slightly cramped--longer graphics cards will get in the way of SATA connections. Little to no overclocking capability. Limited number of US ports (four at the rear, six in total).

Jomesh: #intel_boxdh61wwb3 DH61WW may Freeze within six month use

I have three Intel DH61WW Motherboards with i3-2100. I faced freezing problem on all three mobos for last one year. And each mobos are replaced lots of times from Intel RMA(Digicare) and all mobos show same problem. I waste my lots of time for it.

In my experience the DH61WW may not ahead a period of six month, if use at least 8 hours per day.

I feel DH61WW/H61 chipset has a bug. So no one purchase a H61 chipset motherboards as blind. Coz Intel may continue this dirt chipset for there new 22nm Ivy Bridge processor. Jul 23, 12
