Gigabyte Intros New Mini-ITX LGA1155 Motherboard with Dual HDMI Output

Gigabyte sneaked in its latest motherboard for SFF (small form-factor) fans, the GA-H67N-USB3-B3. This mini-ITX motherboard supports socket LGA1155 Intel Core processors, and is based on the Intel H67 chipset (B3 revision). The board supports every LGA1155 Core processor released till date, its designers didn't have to worry much about its electricals since you're not going to overclock on H67. Yet, the board packs a 4+2 phase VRM for the CPU, that's compliant with Intel's VRD 12 specification. The socket is wired to two DDR3 DIMM slots for dual-channel memory support, and a PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slot.

In the storage department, there are two SATA 6 Gb/s ports from the chipset, two SATA 3 Gb/s, and one eSATA 3 Gb/s, also from the chipset. Its display connectivity surprisingly includes two HDMI ports, and one D-Sub. Audio is care of the high-grade Realtek ALC889 HDA CODEC, which can deliver 108 dB signal-to-noise ratio, the board also provides coaxial and optical SPDIF output connectivity. Other connectivity includes two USB 3.0 ports, gigabit Ethernet, and a number of USB 2.0 ports. The board features dual-BIOS with an EFI module that allows you to boot from a 3 TB+ volume. Gigabyte's H67N-USB3-B3 is expected to be priced around the $120 mark. This one for the HTPC.

Exciting times for HTPC's. Monster memory bandwidth, monster processor capability, SATA 6Gb, the best on-board sound available and 16x PCIe; this could be a gaming rig in your pocket. Maybe add a little WiFi but I'm sure that model is in the pipe.

wifi works fine enough on USB, even with nano sized adaptors.

you won't need 2600K, just 2600 would be enough since you can not overclock on the H67...

I was expecting mini-ITX on P67 rather on H67. Actually there should be 2 mini-ITX boards - one for HTPC and one for SFF gaming rig (and overclocking)
