This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-H55M-USB3 LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
I bought this board to use in an Intel build with an i3-540. The board is well-labeled and easy to set up. The software that comes packaged is also good, and allows for easy over-clocking if that's your thing (it's not mine...yet). I haven't used the USB 3 or HDMI yet but got them for future upgrades. Overall I didn't have a single problem until it died this weekend...
It started rebooting randomly while doing VERY mundane tasks - internet, email, pictures. I would check the CPU and system temps and everything was in line. Then this weekend it would reboot every time I brought it up. I did a RAM and PSU check and everything was ok. So I came back here as I remembered reading some bad reviews before I bought it. Sure enough, a lot of people have had similar issues with this mobo.
For the 6 months it worked I couldn't have been happier. So I will RMA it and hope for a good board this time, as I really like what it offers. Keeping my fingers crossed...
