The GA-H81M-HD3 Micro-ATX Motherboard from Gigabyte supports the 4th generation Intel processors for building a desktop computer. This 9.6 x 7.5" motherboard can fit in smaller sized desktop cases to be used at home or at the office. It offers a LGA1150 socket in which you can install an Intel Core i7/i5/i3, Pentium, or Celeron processor. These CPUs also have an integrated graphics processor that can provide 4K video to an external 4K compatible display via HDMI or DisplayPort. To properly run advanced 3D modeling programs or games, this motherboard supports a dedicated graphics card via 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, four SATA connectors are available. It also offers six USB ports for connecting to other peripherals and can also charge devices that use a battery. For audio and networking needs, the motherboard is built with the Realtek Audio ALC892 and the Realtek Gigabit LAN chip. Gigabyte has also included the App Center, which includes Smart Fan 2 that allows you to control the CPU and system fans. Another feature of the App Center allows you to update the BIOS from within Windows. Included with the H81M motherboard are a driver disk, SATA cables, and an I/O shield.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Electrostatic Protection
High resistance ICs on the motherboard protect the system from electrostatic discharge.
ESD Protection for USB 3.0 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.
USB 3.0 Fuses
Each USB 3.0 port has an independent fuse, so if the fuse does blow out the remaining USB 3.0 ports will still continue to function.
4K HD HDMI Support
This motherboard provides native 4K support with an integrated Intel HD Graphics via HDMI. 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.
DisplayPort Support
The DisplayPort delivers up to 10.8 Gbps of bandwidth over standard cables, providing billions of colors with fast refresh rates.
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.
On/Off Charge Technology
The USB ports on the motherboard allow you to charge your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch regardless of whether your PC is on, in standby mode or even off. On/Off Charge technology enables devices to draw more current from Gigabyte motherboard USB ports than standard USB ports allow, so that charging from your PC can be as fast as with a charger.
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.
Gigabyte App Center
A simple unified user interface that launches Gigabyte apps installed on your system.
Gigabyte EasyTune
Provides a simple and easy-to-use interface that allows you to fine-tune system settings.
Gigabyte Smart Fan 2
This version of Smart Fan features updated and improved CPU and system fan speed controls with individual airflow and speed settings via a dedicated digital controller.
Gigabyte @BIOS
Update your systems BIOS within Windows using a simple user interface by downloading the latest version from Gigabyte servers.
Gigabyte EZ Setup
Simplifies installing and configuring Gigabyte apps that includes Disk Mode Switch, Smart Connect, EZ Rapid Start, and EZ Smart response.
Bundled Software
Norton Internet Security (OEM version): Provides protection for your system against malware, viruses, and more.
