ECS H55H-I Mini ITX Motherboard Snap Review

The greatest benefit to all of the computer component miniaturization is that, over time, you can get increasing amounts of computing performance in smaller spaces. Thankfully motherboard manufacturers are now keeping up with the improvements.

The ECS H55H-I Mini ITX Motherboard allows you to cram your favorite Intel LGA 1156 CPU into some tight quarters and even sports video output for your graphics infused processor. Guru3D has the review:
The product comes from ECS and is tagged as H55H-I, despite what you might think or feel about Mini-ATX, this little motherboard has it, it’s packed and loaded with features. Pop on a Clarkdale based processor like the Core i3 or Core i5 series and you can use it’s HDMI, DVI of DSUB graphics connector. Audio ? No worries the embedded Realtek ACL 8982 eight channel audio codec will happily output to analog or coaxial or optical TOSLINK S/PDIF connectors, need USB ? Well, the rear panel has six of them, need SATA2 ? Here we spot four ports and one eSATA, dual channel memory ? Yep supported, up-to 1600 MHz and in the end if you do not want to use the embedded graphics from the processor, then you can even pop in a full x16 PCIe graphics card and make a wicked gaming rig out of this incredibly handy H55H-I motherboard.
Fully loaded and tiny, can’t ask for much more than that!
