Gigabyte H81M-S 4th Gen Intel Motherboard

GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards support the latest 4th Generation Intel Core processors, bringing a unique blend of features and technologies that offer the absolute ultimate platform for your next PC build. From high current capable power delivery, performance-enhancing caching technology, exclusive high-end audio features, advanced networking and device charging, the Gigabyte 8 Series motherboards are in a class of their own. The latest Intel 8 Series platform offers significant improvements in performance and power consumption with the latest 4th generation Intel Core processors and the Intel H81 chipset. In addition to increasing overall productivity, the latest HD4600 Intel processor graphics deliver significantly higher frame rates in the latest DX11 3D game titles. GIGABYTE debuts GIGABYTE Ultra Durable motherboards, with a variety of features and material choices that deliver record-breaking performance, excellent and efficient operation, and extended motherboard lifespan. GIGABYTE uses solid caps (capacitors) for the CPU VRM and low RDS(on) MOSFETs that are rated to operate at high temperatures to provide long life. Moisture can wreak havoc on a motherboard’s circuitry. Gigabyte’s new glass fabric PCB design helps protect against electrical shorts caused by moisture by reducing gaps between PCB filaments. Gigabyte uses anti-surge ICs to protect the motherboard from power surges. GIGABYTE motherboards feature high resistance ICs that help protect the motherboard from electrostatic discharge. There is no denying that the Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod touch have been a huge success and many of you might own one. However, both devices suffer from one small problem, they don’t charge very fast when connected to your PC. Wouldn’t it be great if your iPhone charged just as fast from your computer charger? GIGABYTE’s latest motherboards are equipped with on/off charge technology that not only allows you to charge your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, but it also allows you to charge faster. As an added bonus, it can be charged even when your PC is turned off, so even if you forget to plug it into the charger after syncing your music, it’ll be fully charged when you need it. GIGABYTE LAN Optimizer is designed to allow the user to manage different types of network traffic to prioritize data streams such as HD media, web browsing or online gaming, over large data downloads that choke the overall network bandwidth. The GIGABYTE App Center gives you easy access to a wealth of GIGABYTE applications that help you get the most out of your GIGABYTE motherboard. Using a simple, unified user interface, GIGABYTE App Center lets you launch all GIGABYTE apps installed on your system. GIGABYTE EasyTune provides a simple and easy-to-use interface that allows users to fine-tune their system settings. In addition to offering more system fans than ever before, Gigabyte 8 Series motherboards feature updated and improved CPU and system fan speed control, with individual airflow and speed settings available via a dedicated digital controller. GIGABYTE Smart Fan 2 allows you to configure CPU fan and system fan. The new and updated GIGABYTE @BIOS app lets you update your system’s BIOS from within Windows using a simple and slick graphical user interface by automatically downloading the latest version from GIGABYTE servers. Gigabyte EZ Setup Disk combines several key utilities designed to simplify the installation and configuration process of several exclusive Gigabyte apps, including Disk Mode Switch, Smart Connect, EZ Rapid Start, and EZ Smart Response.
