Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H Motherboard Review

We decided to use the popular i5-750 CPU for our testing as it should give us a good idea of the overclocking potential of the H55M-UD2H motherboard.  This was cooled by a CoolIT ECO A.L.C CPU cooler installed into a Corsair Graphite 600T chassis.

Test System

Motherboard: Gigabyte GH-H55M-UD2H
Intel Core i5 750 2.67GHz
Crucial Ballistix 4GB (2x 2GB) DDR3
Corsair TX650W
Corsair Graphite 600T
Graphics Card:
Zotac GeForce GTX 470
Thermal Paste:
Arctic Cooling MX-2
Hard Drive:
Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB (7200rpm)

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

3DMark Vantage

PCMark Vantage

Super Pi

FRAPS Professional

SiSoftware Sandra 2010

Cinebench R10

Cinebench R11.5

KitGuru Photoshop Benchmark 1(4)

Grand Theft Auto 4: EFLC

All the latest bios updates and WHQL drivers are used during testing. We perform under real world conditions, meaning KitGuru test all games across five closely matched runs and average out the results to get an accurate median figure.

For our tests, we overclocked the system to 4.00GHz using a base clock of 200MHz with a multiplier of 20x.  We were able to push the system to 4.20GHz but encountered stability issues in some of our more demanding tests.

    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.

  • Eric

    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.
