    Phoronix: Gigabyte GA-H110M-A: A Sub-$60 Intel Skylake Motherboard

    When recently buying the Intel Pentium G4400, a ~$60 Skylake dual-core processor, for Linux testing I was also looking for a Skylake motherboard that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg. The motherboard I ended up pairing for this Pentium G4400 in the test lab was the Gigabyte GA-H110M-A, a micro-ATX board using Intel's H110 chipset.

    The one big support caveat that's sadly common for new Intel/AMD systems on Linux is there's no LM_Sensors support for detecting any of the various onboard thermal/speed/voltage sensors of the motherboard.
    If it's like other Gigabyte Skylake boards with an IT8628E sensors chip, you can use it with modprobe it87 force_id=0x8728.

      Thanks for checking sensors output, Michael. lm-sensors.org has been down for a while. Any news on that?

      That's what it looks like from the pic.

          How does this motherboard support two monitors if it only has a single HDMI output?

            The article doesn't say that this board supports two monitors. It says that the *H110 chipset* supports _up to_ two monitors.
