LGA 1156, Intel H55 Chipset,


Oct 19, 2011
What processors are used with the LGA 1156 Connector and the Intel H55 Chipset? What are the LGA 1156 and the Intel H55 Chipsets purpose on the motherboard?
H55 is the less expensive Intel chipset for socket 1156. It has the onboard video ports, while the P series requires a separate card. My biostar h55 overclocked well so this chipset is a good choice for many folks and works ok with a separate video card. Newer features such as sata 3.0 and usb 3.0 aren't found on these boards. Later versions of the p55 boards may have these features so you pay more.
