Gaming in tight spaces (MIAHALLEN featuring H55N-USB3)

A famous US overclocker living in Japan, MIAHALLEN, wrote a fantastic article about a gaming machine that packs some serious punch based around GIGABYTE’s H55N-USB3. Check out the full article here.

Gigabyte GA-H55N-USB3

This board has performed so far beyond my expectations I would recommend it to anybody…not just somebody on a budget or for a boring office PC…ANYBODY!  This motherboard is fully featured, stable, polished, and the BIOS is far more mature than you’d expect.  It feels very similar to the P55A-UD7 top of the line LGA1156 motherboard from the same company and all this for a very agreeable price.  If you want a small PC don’t look any further!  I don’t hand out awards in my review, but if I did, this would be a Platinum!  Thank you Gigabyte for providing the two H55N-USB3  motherboards used in this review!

On a side note, I upgraded my HTPC with the new motherboard when my wife wasn’t around.  A couple days later she asked me if I had done something to the system.  I wanted to know why she was asking, and she said “because it hasn’t had a hitch or crashed in days!”  I was laughing out loud and told her about Gigabyte supplying an upgrade for it….she wanted me to make sure you know she is very grateful to be able to watch an entire show on Hulu without a crash, “Thanks Gigabyte!”

The wife likes it too. That’s always a good thing Jeremy lol.

  1. That's a really cool little system. Expect to see more Mini-ITX power houses from Gigabyte in the months and years to come. I'm busy with a media center upgrade project at home using a similar setup, only the integrated graphics on the CPU, so no VGA card, and I can tell you that it's a gutsy little system.

    As always, nice review from Miah.
