UK hardware review-masters HardwareHeaven.com have taken a good long look at the GA-H67N-USB3-B3 board, reporting that they’re impressed with both the outstanding build quality and feature set of a fairly compact Mini-ITX form factor board:
….the H67N-USB3-B3 we have a board which features Gigabyte's usual high level of build quality, including the B3 revision chipset and NEC/Renesas USB 3.0 controller. As well as including features such as these and support for the latest 1155 CPUs we also get a fully featured BIOS and thorough software suite which exceeds our expectations for a mini-ITX board. In terms of design there is little to fault about the product and for the most part Gigabyte have been able to fit a huge amount onto the small PCB…
In terms of performance we were hugely impressed by the H67N-USB3-B3. Essentially it gives us the full performance of the Sandy Bridge platform on a mini-ITX board. Regardless of the components we have thrown at it during testing and the tests run on each the board performed flawlessly. Gigabyte have also priced the H67N-USB-B3 at a competitive level and in the UK especially it offers great value at the moment. For £180 (£90 each) we can start a great H67/i3 build which is ideal.
