Experience: 90 Days


Great feature set
itx form factor
plenty of bios options
Computer would shut itself off after 5-10 minutes even while in the bios, "forgot bios settings"
I'll be rma'ing this thing after running flawlessly for 2-3 months it started shutting itself off. I replaced everything with spare parts and bench built it, until the only thing left was the motherboard so I bought a new one locally and tried it out, fixed the problem instantly. Hopefully it was an isolated case and the new one works longer.

Experience: 1 Days


8GB ram
1156 cpu
PCI-E16 slot
cpu heatsink could interfere with video cards
was originally building i3-540 micro-ATX HTPC for my neighbor, but his entertainment unit was not deep enough for even the shortest micro atx cases. I found this ITX size 1156 board and that really opened the options to run a smaller case.

This little board is fully optioned, you can OC just as you would with a micro atx board, run 2 sticks of ram, run a video card (if desired).

Overall, very happy with the board for this build, would recommend this board to anyone looking to build a small form pc with (mostly) current CPU's.

Experience: 1 Months


good options and ports on a small pacakge
no sata 3
i bought this for a mid end gaming rig i put together

cpu = i5 750

ram = 8gb 4x2 ddr3 1600

gpu = 5870 1gb

i wanted a ITX rig for the small desktop footprint size

i had a intel socket 775 itx rig before and the options on this board are a nice step up from intel

Experience: 2 Months


nice layout.optical audio out
their mir system is far from being perfect
I use this motherboard for an htpc. fits perfectly in a Q07. be careful what king of cooler you are choosing. There is some component that might get in the way of a backplate. 6 usd post is not that much and there is only 1 header on the board.

Experience: 1 Months


+USB 3.0
+Low power consumption
-Socket close to PCI-E making aftermarket low profile heatsinks hard to find.
Got this just out of nowhere to replace my MCE system. It uses less power yet is loads faster. This one can actually game thanks to its 5770. My only complaint would be the cpu socket is very close to the pci-e slot. This makes finding a nice low profile after market heatsink harder to find. For now, i have my e6600 stock heatsink bolted on(cooler and quieter then the I5 one).

Experience: 3 Months


m-ITX with USB3.0
cpu socket - pcie slot - RAM slot arrangement (problem with all H55 mobo)
not many usb sockets
Running i5 750 with 5870 on this mobo and it has been very solid. USB3.0 is just future proof, but need to install drivers in Windows in order to use the USB3.0 sockets.
Wish there were more usb sockets on back pannel. Only 6 including the 3.0 ones.
Overall, very satisfied.

Experience: 4 Days


ATX connector placement
some might need more SATA ports or Wi-Fi
Overall, it's a good and solid motherboard.
It has lots of options in BIOS, but I do not OC, so ...
Also, I do not use RAID, so I do not miss it.
Wi-Fi could have been nice, but my HTPC is right next to my router, so running a cable is not a problem to me.
I like the ATX connector placed on the side, not right next to the RAM like Zotac's or DG45FC from Intel. I used them both and the cables were pushing against the RAM or the back of the slim optical drive SATA adapter.
My build involves a slim optical drive and a Compucase ITX-200B case, so the CPU fan clearance was never an issue (I'm using the stock cooler from i3-530).
Have fun with your new build :)

Experience: 4 Days


-Excellent layout
-Tons of features
-Full PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot
-Ultra Durable Line
-Only 4 SATA ports (other H55 boards have 6)
-Chipset cooler is kind of weak
This is a great board, I'm using it with a Core i3 in the Apex MI-008. Clearance around the RAM was a little tight for the CPU cooler however this was to be expected.

The Ultra Durable line really sealed this one for me and I have no regrets. The features are excellent (USB3 and eSata for storage expansion) and is very nice to work with.

Unfortunately the chipset cooler isn't very good (it's got plenty of airflow). It's idling around 45C-49C which is kind of alarming for me, I will likely replace the cooler with something from Zalman or get an active low-profile cooler.

Overall this board is highly recommended for Mini-ITX builds. The SATA is lacking but everything overwhelming makes up for that.

Experience: 1 Days


awesome board
-none yet
great board ive reviewed and purchased it.

about to install it and i have this warning for people..


the stock heatsink for an i3 cpu has a space conflict about 1mm into my ssd hard drive.

just a heads up!

Experience: 1 Months


Awesome mobo, supports i7. see summary
I bought this to replace an intel DH57JG which I was having problems with. I was having lots of image tearing, as soon as I installed this, the problem was gone. I love this mobo because it will let me upgrade cpu if I ever wanna do it. The bios also has a lot more features then the DH57JG (imo). I wouldnt get the DFI since rma and supports is probably non-existant at this point since they stopped making LP mobos. Therefore I would consider this to pretty much be the best Mini-ITX LGA1156 mobo you can buy.

Comment: Overall performance is exceptional, but the smaller form factor does raise several questions about how to properly use a high powered Mini-ITX motherboard.

Comment: Performs well, but the Mini-ITX form factor has inherent limitations.

Comment: The performance of the GIGABYTE H55N-USB3 motherboard is outstanding. It performs better than the competition in the majority of the tests, but also has great overclocking capabilities.

Comment: Overall we can see the Gigabyte H55N-USB3 is a nice board that performs well. The price is a bit higher than ATX and µATX boards, but if you are looking for the smallest solution possible the Gigabyte is a good candidate.
