Gigabyte have launched their new GA-H67N-USB3-B3 motherboard, their first Mini-ITX H67 based board, using Intel’s B3 stepping chipset.

The tiny 17cm square motherboard based on the H67 chipset features the HD graphic core 2000/3000 which allows for Blu-Ray Stereo HD playback in full 1080p high definition over HDMI 1.4. The size of the motherboard and the onboard graphics make this an ideal HTPC board.

The board features Realtek’s ALC889 codec for a 7.1 audio experience, and features quite the compliment of connections; D-Sub VGA, a pair of HDMI outputs supporting up to 1920x1200, 2 6Gb/s and 2 3Gb/s SATA ports, a pair of USB3 ports and up to 8 USB2 connectors.

The board supports all current LGA1155 CPU’s and up to 16GB of DDR3 in its two slots; as well as featuring a single x16 PCI Express slot allowing the potential to turn this board into a tiny gaming monster.

The GA-H67N-USB3-B3 should be available within the next few days.

not a whole lot you can do really you could turn volts down a lil and see if its stable just to knock a few degree's off and you could put some artic silver paste on




right now i'm using artic cooling mx-3

id try and turn down volts now and go to as low till windows wont boot then put it back up a lil then prime test for about 15 min should be plenty for real world tasks

Thats about it dude, if the pump is running direct from the PSU then you are just at the limits of what you have. I had a 120 kit in recently and tbh they are not really up to overclocking IMHO.

The Noctua will fit fine in that case. Or as Marsey says, stick a 240 in the roof.
I had a D14 in my cm-690 II and currently have two 240 rads in there, just so you know they can fit.

most say 65c is the max you should let them hit, i have seen mine go over 80c and as yet they are still fine.

as long as you have the intel thermal management on in the bios i wouldnt worry about temps unless you have stability issues.

I don't really see a problem with those temps unless you're wanting to push it further, how likely are you to put full load on the CPU for 8 hours?

Wolfdales run cool at stock speeds and mild overclocks (my old xeon ran fine passive with an old vapochill micro) but once you're up into the 1.4v+ range they're hot little things. Stick EIST and C-State on in the BIOS and see if they have any effect on your temps/stability.

Failing that, a 240 in the roof would definitely take care of it. The days when a single 120 was enough are long gone.
