The GA-H97M-HD3 Intel H97 Micro ATX Motherboard from Gigabyte features DualBIOS technology that offers both a ‘Main BIOS’ and a ‘Backup BIOS’, making users protected from BIOS failure due to virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process. This board supports 4th and 5th Generation Intel Core processors. Using a simple, unified user interface, the APP Center allows you to launch all GIGABYTE apps installed on your system.
LAN Optimizer is designed to allow the user to manage different types of network traffic so that data streams such as HD media, web browsing or online gaming can be prioritized, taking precedence over large data downloads that tend to strangle overall network bandwidth. The motherboard uses solid caps (capacitors) and low RDS (on) MOSFETs which are rated to work at higher temperatures to provide a longer lifespan. Thanks to the gold-plated CPU socket, users can get a reliable performance without having any concerns about corroded pins and bad contacts.

Ultra durable chipset features DualBIOS technology that protects the BIOS. The motherboard has both a 'Main BIOS' and a 'Backup BIOS', making users protected from BIOS failure due to virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.
Each LAN and USB port is paired with a dedicated protection filter that can withstand high electrostatic discharges, protecting your system from common electrical surges and even direct lighting strikes.
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
Glass Fabric PCB technology repels moisture caused by humid and damp conditions. The technology uses PCB material which reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave, making it much more difficult for moisture to penetrate compared to traditional motherboard PCBs. This offers much better protection from short circuit and system malfunction caused by humid and damp conditions.
Motherboard provides native 4K support with integrated Intel HD Graphics via HDMI
HDMI provides up to 5Gb/s video transmitting bandwidth and 8-channel high quality audio all through a single cable. Able to transmit superior, uncompressed digital video and audio, HDMI ensures the crisp 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 HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), allowing the playback of Blu-ray/HD DVD and other protected media content.
DVI (Digital Visual Interface) is a video interface standard designed for carrying uncompressed digital video data and to maximize the visual quality of digital display devices, such as LCD monitors, digital projectors, and so on. In addition, the DVI interface is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection).
