The Intel H55 Express Chipset is designed for use with these new processors and Core i7 800 series CPUs. The H55 is compatible with the HD graphics found embedded onto the new Clarkdale CPUs as well as the PCI Express 2.0 slots and dual channel DDR3 memory controller provided by the CPU itself, while the chipset itself provides support for the digital displays, HD audio, six PCI Express x1 slots, Serial ATA, Gigabit LAN, and Intel ME Firmware / BIOS support.

ECS motherboards are always on the light side with not including many accessories, which they also pass onto the consumer in the form of a lower price. The ECS Elitegroup H55H-M motherboard is even lighter on accessories than the recently reviewed Intel P55-based ECS P55H-A, with the included items just being two Serial ATA data cables, I/O panel, Windows driver CD, hardware installation guide, and the Elitegroup user's guide.
