For our system build today we received the excellent Zotac H55-ITX WiFi board which we tend to use in our ITX system builds. It arrives in a miniscule orange coloured box with details of the product on the front and back.
The bundle contains a well written manual, a handy installation guide, WiFi antenna (2), several converter cables, 3 orange sata cables (no 90 degree unfortunately) and a motherboard connectivity fascia for the rear of the chassis.
The motherboard is passively cooled and if it is the first time you have seen a Mini ITX board, be prepared to be blown away by the diminutive size of everything!
We listed the connectivity on the last page, but as you can see above there are more than enough ports, even for the most demanding of enthusiast user, we particularly like to see eSATA included – we use this a lot in the KitGuru offices.
The board is passively cooled, this is a good move, as KitGuru hates small, high speed fans. The Wi-Fi card can be seen above next to the ram slots on the right of the picture.
The mobo is 1156 slot which means it can handle Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors from Intel. We will delve more into the system build later in the article.
The Bios is fully featured and we have taken a plethora of screenshots to show you below.
