5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard

Pros: I'm a roboticist, and I've been trying to add a compact and powerful computer to my mobile robot. This motherboard, along with a Core i7 4790 processor, is a major upgrade from what I had before (Raspberry Pi). What makes this board attractive is how easy it is to power it. It draws power from a single 7.4 x 5.0 mm connector rather than clumsy ATX power connectors. It also takes anywhere between 12 and 19 volts. I have powered it using 12V and 19.2V battery packs, and both work great.

Cons: None so far

1 out of 5 eggsDid not work with Haswell Refresh as shipped.

Pros: Did what I needed it to do once I got it working.

Cons: Haswell Refresh processors have been out for a few weeks but the board I received at the end of June from Newegg had a bios that was a year out of date. It did not support the I3-4350 that I purchased for it. Gigabyte docs indicated that it would be fine. There is an updated bios but if you don't have a working processor, you can't update.

What should have been a simple build turned out to be a week of frustration. I ended up purchasing a G3230 that I didn't need just to do the update. If I had not been in a hurry I would have RMA'd it.

Gigabyte's documentation for this card is dismal. I don't know why they wasted the time. There is nothing that explains the header pin outs but the much better docs for the ITX version does cover it. The rest you can guess at if you have build experience.

Other Thoughts: I would not buy this board from Gigabyte again. The thin mini-ITX build is a great form factor and should be and easy build for just about anyone. Unfortunately given Gigabyte's very slow tech support, lack of documentation, very sparse bios update instructions, and their inability to confirm what bios I had, this build turned out to challenging.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent MB

Pros: Installed into a Silverstone PT13 case. Very happy with it.

The System is tiny. Not NUC tiny, but Desktop Tiny. You’re talking desktop class processor, not mobile processor. The case is basically as big as three stacked DVD cases (see pictures). It’s unobtrusive, understated and very well made.
The machine is not a benchmark killer system, but it is very-very fast. This + Windows 8.1 = a lot of love. Very, very enjoyable to work, play and get entertained on it. Everything from boot till shut down is silky smooth and very fast.
If you want quiet/fanless, you have to go the Akasa Euler way, but you trade off in size and weight. More, Akasa Euler is rated for processors up to 35W, but there are reports that a 65W will do just fine in it. I’m still tempted, but again, I do like the size and the lightweight of the current configuration.

No ‘Smart TV’ will ever come close to this, so I will soon build another one for another room.

Cons: Not happy about the fan (Silverstone AR04) and the fan installation.
No speaker/beeper to help with troubleshooting.
Unstable audio over HDMI (needs further testing before declaring it an issue)

Other Thoughts: Parts:

MB: Gigabyte GA-H87TN LGA 1150
CPU: Quad Core Intel i5 4570s (65W)
Cooler: Silverstone AR 04
Paste: Arctic Silver 5-3.5G %
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB DDR3 SO-DIMM 1600 (PC3 12800) (BLS2K8G3N169ES4)
Case: Silverstone PT13
PS: Anker for HP Compaq Presario CQ40... [19V 4.74A 90W]
KB: Logitech Mini Controller
OS: Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit

The RAM I’ve bought was not listed on Gigabyte’s site as compatible, but I bought it anyway. Moreover, after it came I’ve realized I’ve purchased a 1.35V RAM, while Gigabyte recommends 1.5V. Long story short, THIS 1.35V RAM works and does not get hot.

Power Consumption (measured with a Kill-A-Watt):

-OFF (with wired KB and wired mouse): 3.2W
-Idle (Windows desktop, mozilla web page etc): 16.5-17W
-Idle with external WD MyPassport 2TB attached: 18W
-With some SSD activity (opening Mozilla, Photoshop, etc): 32W. After a couple of seconds, going back down to 18W
-CPU Stress Test: 68.9W
-CPU Arithmetic: 63W
-CPU Multimedia: 68W
-Memory Bandwidth: 55W
-FPU Julia: 82W (!)
-FPU Mandel: 86W (!)

All in all, the system ranked very well in benchmarks, impaired obviously by the lack of a graphic card. And I really don’t care about that. I was surprised, however that in PerformanceTest 8.0, under graphics benchmarking, Intel Graphics 4600 was no better than the 4000 (but I don’t know what kind of tests are being performed). Oh well...

The system boots in less than 8sec. With the time the TV takes to switch inputs (from nothing to something), it feels much faster. Shut Down is close to 1sec, feels almost instant.


On the MB, except some power regulator, no chip was hot by any measure. I was pleasantly surprised how cool the Chipset remained during heavy benchmarking. Thanks Gigabyte for a (literally and figuratively) cool design.
