GIGABYTE B450M DS3H V2 Micro-ATX Motherboard will get your gaming build off to a good start. With a Micro-ATX form factor, this motherboard provides the functionality of larger boards in a smaller package, making it ideal for builders who want to concentrate on gaming components. The GIGABYTE B450M DS3H V2 is based on AMD’s B450 chipset, which provides access to an AM4 CPU socket that supports select Ryzen-brand processors.
Four dual-channel DIMMs make it simple to install different memory modules for faster multitasking. With four SATA III ports and one M.2 PCIe connector, you have more storage options. Install various graphics and utility cards using one PCIe x16 slot. Utility cards can also take advantage of PCIe x4 and x1 slots.
The DS3H’s back panel features a slew of USB 3.2 Gen 1 and 2.0 Type-A ports for peripherals. Furthermore, an RJ-45 8118 Gaming LAN port provides faster bandwidth, which is essential for competitive online gaming.
The GIGABYTE B450M DS3H V2 is based on the AMD B450 chipset, which gives you access to the AM4 socket, which is ideal for select 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation Ryzen processors. Improved plug-and-play performance allows you to easily design your build for various capabilities such as gaming and design.
Ultimate Power Design of GIGABYTE B450M DS3H V2
The DS3H stabilises system performance, balances voltage, and prevents moisture with a 4+2 phase digital VRM solution design and glass fabric printed circuit board. The use of digital PWM and Low RDS(on) MOSFET components improves transient response, allowing this board to handle a wide range of current levels. Solid pin connectors promote long-term durability and conductivity for reliable electrical connections. The anti-sulfur design adds an extra layer of protection to resistors, preventing contaminants from affecting your motherboard and causing component failure. Furthermore, this GIGABYTE B450M DS3H V2 motherboard is CEC 2019 compliant, meaning it meets California Energy Commission standards.
