Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H Motherboard Review

The Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H is a good all round board which is a perfect partner for a i5-750 or i5-760 CPU.  We managed to achieve a stable overclock of 4.00GHz which showed decent performance increases throughout all of our tests.

One of the main drawbacks of the H55M-UD2H is the close proximity of the RAM slots to the CPU socket which will inhibit the use of a large air cooler.  This isn’t completely a direct result of the small form factor as removing the FDD and IDE connectors could have created  more room.

At a shade over £60 from YOYOTech, the H55M-UD2H represents quite reasonable value for money.   We would encourage anyone looking for a Micro-ATX H55 board to consider this as it delivers a decent performance, good quality and pleasant aesthetics.

KitGuru Says:  Another quality board from Gigabyte that would be perfect for a HTPC.

Rating: 8.5.

    Seems like a good value product to be honest. I like their boards, bioses are normally really good.

    60 quid for a board like this is much lower than competiting products from say Zotac. im well impressed with this tbh. shame I have no intention of building a media pc right now.

    Its always an issue with the smaller PCB’s. I know zardon had to modifiy the zotac board to fit the arctic cooling cooler onto it in his review. Its always going to be a compromise. someting like the watercooling all in ones you used in this are ideal, if the chassis can accommodate them.

    Pretty good board, i think if I was building a media pc tho id opt for a bigger chassis to take a full sized board. these are limited.
