Gigabyte B75M-D3H Intel LGA 1155

Intel B75 Express Chipset »

Introduction



Another week goes by, and I've got another board on my test bench, this time from Gigabyte. I've had the opportunity to take a look at a couple of other Gigabyte products based on Intel's Z77 Express PCH over the past couple of months, and I've been left very impressed by what they have to offer this time around. Those other products were gaming- and enthusiast-class products, but what about mainstream users? Gigabyte's B75M-D3H is a product designed with mainstrem users in mind, rolled together using Intel's B75 Express chipset and Gigabyte's Ultra Durable 4 technologies, bringing next-gen functionality to the business-oriented B75 platform. Since the B75M-D3H is a mainstream product, it also features mainstream pricing, sure to make anyone's wallet happy about the cost savings. I expect a lot from this product, considering its Z77 Express brethren; does it live up to the hype? Let's take a look.
