The compact format mATX motherboard has balanced equipment and modern features. Ideally, it will be used as a base for normal home computer activities and photo editing, but with the right graphics you can also play new games.It has the possibility of installing the Intel Haswell Family Processor, which is currently the most innovative CPU. By installing this processor you will get the full potential PCI Express 2.0 slot  for a powerful graphics card, native support for operating memory frequency of 1600 MHz, high-speed SATA III and several useful technologies which bind to the new Intel H81 chipset.

The motherboard boasts a standard of quality using Ultra Durable 4 Plus parts. It incorporates the whole range of exclusive technologies that guarantee the absolute best PC protection. Whether it is from moisture and wetness, or electrostatic discharge, sudden power loss and high operating temperatures. This provides you with great-cooled components, efficient operation, record the performance and extend the life of the plate.

The motherboard is equipped with technology that protects probably one of the most important elements of your PC - BIOS. UEFI DualBIOS means that your motherboard has both a "main BIOS", and "backup BIOS". This protects the BIOS before failure due to a virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper overclocking settings or power failure during the update.

The GIGABYTE On/Off Charge technology allows you to charge your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch regardless of whether your computer is turned on. This enables the advanced USB 3.0 ports that are specifically involved and each has its own network fuse to prevent data transmission failure. For convenient management across the board, there are a number of utilities such as Gigabyte EasyTune for easy management and monitoring hardware fitted, LAN Optimizer Or Gigabyte App Center.
