EVGA H55 Motherboard Reviewed

We think EVGA H55 is a little bit overpriced for what it is. Of course it isn’t a vanilla H55 motherboard, however we expected it to have an HDMI output and on-board SPDIF connectors. The absence of these features prevent you from using this motherboard for building an HTPC (Home Theater PC) out-of-the-box (you still can convert the included DVI-D output into HDMI and add SPDIF outputs by adding an I/O bracket).

On the good side, EVGA H55 has a professional-grade audio codec, providing astonishing 104 dB signal-to-noise ratio on its analog inputs and 108 dB signal-to-noise ratio on its analog outputs, allowing you to work professionally editing and converting audio (e.g. converting VHS tapes and LPs to the digital format) without the need to buy an add-on audio card.

  1. They sure are making a big deal about the sound CODEC.
    It would be interesting to see how it compares to a basic dedicated sound card like the Xonar Ds or DX...

  2. Yeah, I wonder if this mobo's meant for audio professionals... or at least people who want to digitize their analog content? :lol:
