These minis pack a mean punch.
The ECS H67H2-I packs in a whole lot of features on that tiny little 170x170mm board. The layout is pretty basic; you have the Southbridge chipset with heatsink on the top, below which is the LGA 1155 socket. On the right we have the dual channel DDR3 1333MHz, on the opposite end we have the I/O panel and at the bottom the PCIe x16 slot.
At the very top there are 2x SATA II (3Gbps) and 2x SATA III (6Gbps) ports, on the rear I/O panel we have and eSATA port, 6x USB 2.0 and 2x USB 3.0 ports, display out (VGA/ DVI/HDMI) connectors, Realtek LAN and audio out connectors (plus optical out) and lastly a Bluetooth module.
As with any other Mini-ITX motherboard, the ECS H67H2-I had everything packed in at close proximity, so the CPU heatsink and the GTX 580 card plus the RAM sticks were mere millimeters away from each other. Of course, in a real world scenario one wouldn’t be using such a high-end heatsink, graphics card or memory modules, but it’s cool to see all of these components hide the mini motherboard nonetheless.
