The Gigabyte GA-H81M-D3V Micro-ATX Motherboard utilizes the performance of 4th generation Intel processors and the H81 chipset to boost your overall productivity. This motherboard supports integrated graphics, which delivers 1080p visuals to your monitor while connected to its VGA and DVI-D ports. If you need more graphics power, this motherboard features a PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot so you can install an optional graphics card. For drive support, it comes with four SATA ports that connect to your optical and storage drives. It also offers two DDR3 DIMM slots that support up to 16GB of system memory.

Gigabyte has outfitted this motherboard with a Realtek Gigabit LAN jack, which provides reliable, fast access to the network and Internet. This motherboard features four USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports to connect with printers, external drives, and other USB-enabled devices. In addition to connectivity, the USB ports support On/Off technology, which enables you to quickly charge your tablet and smartphone just as fast as with a wall charger. Furthermore, Gigabyte has emphasized reliability and ease of use with this motherboard by including apps that help you optimize your system and DualBIOS technology, which automatically recovers BIOS data when the main BIOS has crashed or failed.

Intel 8 Series Platform
This motherboard utilizes the performance and power consumption of the 4th generation Intel Core processors and Intel H81 chipsets. As well as a boost in overall productivity, the latest HD4600 Intel processor graphics provide significantly higher frame rates in the DX11-compatible 3D game titles.
Gigabyte Ultra Durable 4 Plus
Gigabyte Ultra Durable 4 Plus provides a range of features and component choices that provide performance, cool and efficient operation, and extended motherboard lifespan.
Solid Capacitors
This motherboard uses solid capacitors and Low RDS(on) MOSFETs, which are rated to work at higher temperatures to provide 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 setting, or power failure during the update process.
Humidity Protection with Glass Fabric PCB
Gigabyte's Glass Fabric Printed Circuit Board design helps protect against electrical shorts due to humidity by reducing the gaps in spacing between PCB filaments.
Power Failure Protection
Utilizing Anti-Surge ICs, this motherboard is protected against power surges.
Electrostatic Protection
This motherboard features High Resistance ICs, which help protect the motherboard against electrostatic discharge.
High ESD Protection for USB and LAN (USB 3.0 only)
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.
One Fuse per USB Port (USB 3.0 only)
Each USB 3.0 port has its own dedicated power fuse that prevents unwanted USB port failure, helping to safe guard your important data during transfers.
DVI Support
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).
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. Compared to standard USB ports, On/Off Charge technology enables devices to draw more current from these USB ports, which can be just as fast as with your charger.
LAN Optimizer
Gigabyte 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.
Gigabyte App Center
Gigabyte App Center gives you easy access to Gigabyte apps, which help you get the most from your Gigabyte motherboard. Using a simple, unified user interface, Gigabyte App Center allows you to launch all Gigabyte apps installed on your system.
Gigabyte EasyTune
Gigabyte EasyTune provides a simple and easy-to-use interface that allows users to fine-tune their system settings.
Gigabyte Smart Fan 2
Gigabyte Smart Fan 2 allows you to adjust the spin speed of each processor and system fan via a dedicated digital controller.
Gigabyte @BIOS
You can update the motherboard's BIOS from within Windows using a simple graphical user interface. This Gigabyte @BIOS app can automatically download the latest BIOS version from Gigabyte's servers.
Gigabyte EZ Setup
Gigabyte EZ Setup combines several key utilities designed to simplify installation and configuration for several GIGABYTE apps, including Disk Mode Switch, Smart Connect, EZ Rapid Start, and EZ Smart response.
