Zotac H55-ITX Motherboard shrinks the mid-range even more

The ever-shrinking motherboard poses a bit of a problem. Sure the improved performance and small dimensions are a huge benefit but you’ll be hard pressed to find a suitable case to contain all of the power…but that’s a problem for another time.

The Zotac H55-ITX Motherboard can accept any Intel LGA 1156 CPU and sports a shiny PCIe X16 slot for your high-end graphics needs. AnandTech has the review of this pint-sized beast:

There are a couple of possible directions you can take with the H55-ITX. First, you could choose to turn this into a low-watt HTPC by utilizing a Core i3 and relying on Intel’s HD graphics for your video needs. On the other hand, you could install an i5 or i7 and populate the PCIe slot with a dedicated graphics card for a nice mid-range gaming system. Cases such as the Silverstone SG-06 and the upcoming Lian-Li PC-Q08 would complement a system such as this perfectly.

A dual-GPU graphics card paired with this board would make for a powerful gaming system indeed.
