    Default H61M Motherboards

    Seeing these H61M microATX and smaller, at attractive prices for an I3 build, difficult to find ANY information, found no reviews.
    Assume its a cut back version of H67 for Home Theatre and mini pc builds.
    What I do find is there are issues with software on some? most? all? P67 boards at the moment.
    Near as I can tell revisions/updates are going from the top down,
    Anyway waiting Z Boards and Bulldozer release.

    H61 is very severely crippled, compared to other SB chipsets, it has no SATA3, H61 boards typically have no USB3, just 2 DRAM slots and weak VRM - just to work with CPUs and nothing more.

    I'd just go AMD in low end.

    According to intel, H61 doesn't support Clear Video Technology. This means you would't be able to benefit from the hardware acceleation HD video play back feature that core i3 processors have, if you coupled a core i3 with a H61.

    Police arrest two kids. One was drinking battery acid, the other was eating fireworks. They charged one and let the other one off.
