In this corner of the ECS H67H2-M motherboard we find
physical power and reset buttons that make tweaking a system out of the box so much easier. A CMOS reset button
is located on the rear-IO panel. The Port 80 card helps when debugging.

The new socket 1155 for Intel Sandy
The four DDR3 memory
slots will accommodate up to 16GB (64-bit OS) of DDR3-1066/1333 memory.
Clearance is pretty good around the CPU socket
While Intel has created several different heatsink sizes
in recent years (LGA775, 1156 and 1366), the socket 1155 is reportedly
compatible with existing socket 1156 heatsinks.
The 32nm Sandy Bridge processor
is expected to have a modest TDP of between 65W and 95W.
Passive aluminum heatsinks and heatpipes cool
the motherboard MOSFETs on the ECS H67H2-M board. Since CPU VRM is connected
by heatpipe, this will help drop internal case temperatures by taking advantage of
heatsink exhaust airflow.
