Welcome, Gizcomputers. Brief overview of the Gigabyte GA-H270M-DS3H, a motherboard of standard range, belonging to the well-known series ULTRA DURABLE of Gigabyte. A board designed for the average user who wants to update their equipment with the latest news. On this series we have already presented the odd model, as was the case of the Gigabyte GA-B250M-DS3H, a reference of lower benefits than the product that concerns us today.
Now let’s see the characteristics of this great plate Gigabyte H270M-DS3H.
Design and construction of the Gigabyte GA-H270M-DS3H.
The Gigabyte GA-H270M-DS3H is a plate in format Micro ATX, with the usual sober design of the series. The patent technologies of Gigabyte They provide high security and quality values in their components. An example is Smart Fan 5, its exclusive temperature control system, or the high quality audio capacitors and noise protection with led audio separation.
The plate belonging to the series ULTRADURABLE, has a series of specific technologies in its components, designed to extend the useful life of the product. Highlighting the following characteristics:
- Durable anti-sulfur design. An alloy layer has been added to protect the silver layer and prevent the sulfurization reaction from taking place.
- A “Glass Fabric” PCB that prevents condensation from ambient moisture from damaging the board.
- Low-profile RDS MOSFETs that maximize efficiency and decrease heat generation.
- High-quality, noise-shielding audio capacitors with led audio separation.
Processor and RAM support for the Gigabyte GA-H270M-DS3H.
It comes equipped with the socket 1151. Supports processors 6th and 7th Gen Intel® Core ™ i7 / Intel® Core ™ i5 / Intel® Core ™ i3 / Intel® Pentium® / Intel® Celeron®. Compatible with memories up to 2400MHz DDR4 RAM dual channel. Has 4 slots. Supports a maximum of 64Gb.
The Gigabyte GA-H270M-DS3H use the H270 chipset, With which intel at the consumption level it offers the best possibilities to the user who has no interest in overclocking. Below you have a small comparative table of this line of chipsets.
Gigabyte H270M-DS3H connectivity, audio and expansion.
The Gigabyte GA-H270M-DS3H has: 1 slot PCI Express x16 to x16, 1 PCI Express x16 to x4 and 2 PCI Express x1, which is quite acceptable for its size. The number of ports USB is the next:
- 6 x USB 2.0 / 1.1 ports
