Gigabyte H67MA-UD2H - A Closer Look
We find ourselves familiar with the packaging, which is clearly of Gigabyte theme. The box is relatively compact however of sturdy material.
Amongst the packaging you will find a typical accessory set, consisting of 4 SATA cables, a manual and a driver CD. But enough of that, lets get to the motherboard itself.
As some of you may know, Gigabyte are beginning to transition towards a swarve black theme on their motherboards; this however seems to be a bit of a hybrid The PCB and expansions slots are reminiscent of the X58/P55 generation and yet they have opted for gun metal coloured heatsinks. No complaints of course, just a mild observation.
Despite being a mATX motherboard, connectivity is unlikely to be a problem for most. Aside sporting plenty of USB and SATA ports, there are also two PCI-E 16x (16x, 4x electrical) and two PCI-E 1x expansion slots as well. It would have been great to see more SATA 6Gb/s ports however it is not a great issue.
