HM55 mini-ITX motherboard

Mini-ITX is becoming a hot trend, with more and more companies committing to having a teeny-tiny option or two in their product lineups. Until now though, we’ve not had a motherboard big-hitter take the plunge with a modern mini-ITX motherboard, with smaller companies such as Zotac and DFI blazing the tiny-board trail.


As with those previous mini-ITX offerings, SZMZ HM55 is another HM55 chipset motherboard, and for the same reasons. For a start, space is limited around the socket, so there’s little room for fancy, high-end power hardware. Secondly, the kinds of case that these motherboard will typically find themselves in are more suited to the on-board graphics of the Ivy Bridge Dual Core i5 and i7 (and their lower TDPs) than the lynnfield core i5 and i7 range.


The LGA1156 socket supports standard desktop CPUs and heatsinks, although again the size of your case will limit which coolers you can use. Also bear in mind that even modest coolers overlap the two memory sockets and the PCIE slot so a standard-height memory is required, and you’ll need a small cooler if you plan to use the expansion slot.
