Gigabyte E350N-USB3 Motherboard


While the USB 3.0 and SATA III have caught on as a trend in the upper motherboards but have not yet reached the mITX mainly because of price reasons. I was genuinely surprise when I saw this board support both SATA III as well as USB 3.0 specifications. In the picture below all four ports support support SATA III. There are also 2 USB 3.0 ports affixed to the back marked with a blue USB header.


I addition to having USB 3.0 and SATA III support the motherboard also supports other neat features such a PCI 4x Express slot as can be seen in the pictures below. Despite only being 4x slot, you will be able to fit 16x devices as it a full size slot. I was also impressed by the motherboard’s DualBios option available through a hardware switch – a feature usually reserved for higher, more expensive players in the field.
