ZOTAC H61MAT-A-E compatibility review

The ZOTAC H61MAT-A-E uses the Intel LGA 1155/Socket H2 CPU socket. Any compatible Intel CPU will have the same socket entry. It uses the DDR3 memory type, with maximum speeds of up to 1333 MHz, and 2 DDR3 slots allowing for a maximum total of 16 GB RAM.

The Micro-ATX ZOTAC H61MAT-A-E should fit into all ATX cases, but its smaller size allows you to downsize your system build as a whole. Its size comes at the cost of features, so there are likely to be far fewer connections and expansion options available than in a larger motherboard.

The ZOTAC H61MAT-A-E has 3 SATA 2.0 hard drive slots. These allow for data speeds of up to 3GB/s. SATA 2.0 is a very common standard, and despite the emergence of SATA 3.0 - whose potential is difficult to reach currently - SATA 2.0 remains a viable option.

The ZOTAC H61MAT-A-E does not support onboard graphics. Any system build that uses this motherboard therefore requires a separate graphics card, or a processor that has a GPU on the same die, such as AMD APU processors. There are 1 PCIe x16 slots on this motherboard. This means it is perfectly capable of accommodating the latest graphics cards, although it is important to try and use a graphics card with the same graphics card interface of PCIe v2.x, as anything below will not reach the motherboard's potential, and anything above will have its performance slashed to the bandwidth maximum of the ZOTAC H61MAT-A-E's PCIe v2.x. The ZOTAC H61MAT-A-E does not support multiple graphics cards via Nvidia SLI or AMD Crossfire.
