The GA-H97N-WIFI Mini-ITX Motherboard from Gigabyte offers unique features that make it well suited for business as well as home use. This 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 provides 4K video to a 4K capable display via HDMI. This motherboard comes with dual LAN controllers that provide backup network support just in case one LAN stops working. For connecting to networks wirelessly, an 802.11ac Wi-Fi module is installed, occupying the mini-PCI slot. This module also features Bluetooth 4.0, for connecting to other wireless devices such as a mouse or keyboard.

Gigabyte supports Intel Small Business Advantage with this motherboard by including six applications that offer security, data backup, and more. If you want to build a computer for 3D gaming or modeling, you can install a dedicated graphics card in the PCI Express x16 slot. You may add up to 16GB of RAM across 2 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 four USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports for connecting to other peripherals. For audio needs, the motherboard is built with the Realtek ALC892 that can support a 7.1 channel speaker system. Included with the H97N motherboard are a driver disk, SATA cables, and an I/O shield.

Intel Gigabit LAN
Offers several performance-enhancing features such as advanced interrupt handling to help reduce CPU overhead and Jumbo Frame support for extra large data packets.
Integrated 2T2R Dual Band IEEE802.11ac Wi-Fi + BT 4.0
The IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi module supports up to 867 Mbps wireless networks and also offers Bluetooth 4.0. The bundled 2.4 GHz/5 GHz dual-band 2T2R antenna provides wide coverage.
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 protects 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.
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
