On-Board Peripherals

The Intel H67 chipset is a single-chip solution which is also known as a PCH (Platform Controller Hub). This chip supports two SATA-600 ports and four SATA-300 ports, supporting RAID 0, 1, 10 and 5. The motherboard also has one eSATA-300 port, controlled by a JMicron JMB360 chip.

This motherboard has eight USB 2.0 ports, four soldered on the rear panel and four available through two headers located on the motherboard. It also has four USB 3.0 ports, two located on the rear panel and two available through a front panel header. The product comes with an I/O bracket for you to use these two USB 3.0 ports. It also comes with an additional bracket for half-height slots if you are using a slim case. The four USB 3.0 ports are controlled by a VLI VT800 chip.

No FireWire (IEEE1394) ports are available.

The H67-ITX WiFi comes with eight-channel audio, generated by the chipset using a Realtek ALC892 codec. Finally, Realtek is disclosing the specifications of this chip, which include a 97 dB signal-to-noise ratio for the analog outputs, 90 dB signal-to-noise ratio for the analog inputs, and up to 192 kHz sampling rate for both inputs and outputs. These specs are good for the mainstream user, but if you are looking into working professionally with audio editing, you should look for a motherboard that provides an SNR of at least 97 dB for the analog input.

The portrayed motherboard has an optical SPDIF output and shared analog audio outputs. These outputs allow you to connect a 5.1 analog speaker system directly, but if you install a 7.1 analog speaker system, you will have to use either the mic in or line in jacks to connect the fourth pair of speakers.

Digital audio is also available through the on-board HDMI connector. You can either install a coaxial SPDIF jack or route digital audio to your video card to have digital audio in the HDMI connector using the available “CN5” header.

The portrayed motherboard has one Gigabit Ethernet port, controlled by a Realtek RTL8111E chip.

In Figure 6, you can see the motherboard rear panel, with mouse and keyboard shared PS/2 connector, two USB 3.0 ports (blue), DisplayPort output, HDMI output, WiFi antenna connectors, DVI-D output, four USB 2.0 ports, eSATA-300 port, Gigabit Ethernet port, optical SPDIF output, and shared 7.1 analog audio jacks.

The WiFi antenna connectors come with red caps protecting them. After you build your computer, you will have to remove them and install the two antennas that come with the product.
