Default Gigabyte H55N-USB3 : Mini-ITX done the Gigabyte way

Demand for mini-ITX boards built around Intelís socket 1156 has been rather high this year, and as a result, vendors like DFI, ECS, Intel and Zotac have enjoyed free reign of sales despite releasing products that donít necessarily live up to or meet user expectations. Going mini-ITX means there will always be a few compromises on the hardware/peripheral front (many of which users are prepared to stomach), but what makes things less palatable all-round is when boards are delivered with partially functional BIOSes that lack any real finesse or control of key features. Sensing an opportunity, Gigabyte has stepped in to the fray with the keenly priced H55N-USB3 (MSRP $105) and is looking for a slice of the mini-ITX pie. Itís certainly a welcome move, because in general, Gigabyte delivers feature-packed BIOSes that are well laid out and easy to use.

Weíve been lucky enough to get acquainted with Gigabyteís H55N-USB3 motherboard over the past week, and for once have our review ready around launch time. Weíll tell you right now that we rather like this little board, there are a few things that need attention, but overall itís the best socket 1156 mini-ITX motherboard thatís passed through our hands to date. So without further ado, weíll go straight to board pictures and layout commentary:
