Full ATX boards featuring the Intel H67 are pretty rare. Most boards with the H67 chipset are of the Micro ATX form factor. The majority of users that select an H67-equipped board do so to take advantage of Intel HD graphics built into Sandy Bridge processors and thus, won't be using a high-end graphics card or really any other add-in cards. Builds where a Micro ATX board would be suitable include home theater PCs and small form factor builds where a small footprint is needed.

A quick check at Newegg revealed only three full size ATX H67 boards, one of them being the board we are taking a look at today, the Gigabyte GA-H67A-UD3H. There is a market for a full size H67 board although I suspect it isn't large. For example, some users (myself included) aren't big gamers but still want a full size board for things like TV tuners, high-end sound cards, RAID controllers, PCI-e solid state drives, etc. For someone that doesn't play modern gaming titles, there's no good reason not to utilize Intel HD graphics as they are quite suitable for HD video playback and mainstream gaming at low resolutions.

The H67A-UD3H arrived in familiar Gigabyte packaging - a mostly white box with the product name on the front and a breakdown of features on the reverse. Inside the box is the board itself, four blue SATA 6Gb/s (two with right-angle connectors), a user manual, software / driver installation disc, rear I/O shield and a Gigabyte case badge.

Let's move ahead and check out the specifications on the H67A-UD3H.
