The GA-H97M-D3H Micro-ATX Motherboard from Gigabyte supports advanced PC components for building a compact computer. This 9.6 x 8.9" sized motherboard supports 4th and 5th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3, Pentium, and Celeron processors in the LGA1150 socket. These CPUs also use an integrated Intel graphics processor that delivers 4K video to a 4K capable display via HDMI. This motherboard supports multiple graphic cards configured for 2-Way CrossFire to allow higher frame rates without compromising resolution when running advanced 3D games. Gigabyte also supports Intel Small Business Advantage with this motherboard by including six applications that offer security, data backup, and more.

You may add up to 32GB of RAM across 4 memory slots to run multiple applications at the same time. For connecting to optical and storage drives, six SATA III connectors are available and allow for data transfers up to 6 Gb/s. It also offers six USB ports for connecting to other peripherals. For audio and networking needs, the motherboard is built with the Realtek Audio ALC892 and the Realtek GbE LAN chip. Gigabyte has also included the App Center, which allows you to tweak settings within the BIOS for increasing the performance of the CPU and GPU. Another feature of the App Center allows you to remotely share files and control your computer via smartphone and tablet. Included with the H97 motherboard are a driver disk, SATA cables, and an I/O shield.

Multi-GPU Support
Gaming enthusiasts who demand the highest frame rates without compromising on resolution this motherboard supports 2-Way CrossFire action, which delivers faster graphics performance by supporting two graphic cards versus just one.
Gigabyte App Center Including EasyTune and Cloud Station Utilities
Access Gigabyte apps via the APP Center, which can help you get the most of your Gigabyte motherboard. Using a simple, unified user interface, the Gigabyte APP Center allows you to launch all Gigabyte apps installed on your system.

EasyTune App
Smart Quick Boost: Choose from different levels of CPU frequencies to achieve desired system performance.
Advanced CPU OC: Set CPU base clock, frequency, voltages, and integrated graphics frequency.
Advanced DDR OC: Sets the memory clock.
3D Power: Change power phase, voltage, and frequency settings.

Cloud Station
HomeCloud: Share files between your smart phone/tablet device and computer or back up files from the device to the computer.
HotSpot: Turns your computer into a virtual wireless access point and allows you to share your connection with your other wireless devices.
Gigabyte Remote: Control the mouse / keyboard / Windows Media Player on your computer from your smartphone/tablet device.
Remote OC: This software suite allows you to remotely overclock, monitor, tweak, power down, and reset the PC.
Auto Green: By pairing the system with a Bluetooth device and selecting a power-saving mode in the OS that uses less energy. When you walk away from the computer, it automatically powers down to save energy and when it detects the Bluetooth device again, resumes.
LAN Optimizer
Software program that allows the user to manage different types of network traffic so data streams such as HD media, web browsing, or online gaming can be prioritized.
All Solid Caps and Low RDS(on) MOSFETs
All solid capacitors and low RDS MOSFETS used on this motherboard are rated to work at higher temperatures to ensure a longer lifespan.
5x 15μ Gold-Plated CPU Socket Design
To provide reliability and longevity, the CPU socket has been gold-plated to help prevent corroded pins and bad contacts when used longer than an average workday.
Gigabyte UEFI DualBIOS
You can use the secondary BIOS when the primary BIOS fails due to a virus attack, hardware malfunction, incorrect OC settings or power failure during the update process.
ESD Protection for USB and LAN
Each LAN and USB port is paired with a dedicated protection filter that can withstand high electrostatic discharges, protecting your system from electrical surges and even direct lighting strikes.
Power Failure Protection with Anti-Surge IC
Special anti-surge ICs protect your motherboard and your PC from any surge in power delivery that may occur, helping to ensure that your PC is equipped to deal with any potentially irregular and inconsistent power delivery.
Humidity Protection with Glass Fabric PCB
Glass Fabric Printed Circuit Board technology uses a material that reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave, making it much more difficult for moisture to penetrate compared to traditional motherboard PCBs. The benefit is added protection from short circuit and system malfunction caused by humid and damp conditions.
Heat Sink Design
The heat sink is designed to efficiently cool key areas of the motherboard including the PWM area and chipset (PCH). This helps maintain optimal thermal parameters of the PWM area when running aggressive and extreme configurations.
4K HD HDMI Support
This motherboard provides native 4K support with an integrated Intel HD Graphics via an HDMI port. This High-Definition Multimedia Interface provides up to 5 Gb/s of bandwidth for transmitting video and 8-channels of audio all through a single cable. Capable of transmitting uncompressed digital video and audio, HDMI ensures rendering of digital content up to 1080p without the quality losses associated with analog interfaces and their digital-to-analog conversion. In addition, HDMI is compatible with High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection, allowing the playback of Blu-ray/HD DVD and other protected media content.
DVI Support
Digital Visual Interface is a video interface standard designed for carrying uncompressed digital video data and for maximizing the visual quality of digital display devices, such as LCD monitors, digital projectors, and so on. In addition, the DVI interface is compatible with High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection.
Intel Small Business Advantage
