What's Hot

 

Dual Intel NICs and HDMI: You get two Intel NICs and then you also get two HDMI ports, which is great for anyone who wants to build an HTPC with this motherboard. One of the HDMI ports is an HDMI 2.0 port, so it can HDCP 2.2 video. The other port can be used for audio or another display. The dual NICs allows for more connectivity options and redundancy.

 

Dual x4 M.2 Slots: The H370N WIFI has not just one but two x4 PCI-E 3.0 M.2 slots, which is pretty good for a mini-ITX motherboard with an H370 chipset.

 

Intel's new WIFI: We find Intel's brand new WIFI controller on the motherboard, and it's a great thing because it supports the latest and greatest Wireless-AC up to 1.733Gbps on the 160Mhz band.

 

Dual BIOS: A solid feature to have since most motherboards are RMAed because of corrupt BIOS flashes.

 

 

What's Not

 

Rear USB: For starters, there is no USB 3.1 on this motherboard. The rear IO also only has four type-A ports.

 

 

 

Final Thoughts

 

The H370N WIFI is one of many H370 mini-ITX motherboards that are targeted towards HTPC users and those who want much smaller systems. The motherboard is overall pretty decent and offers up all the features you will need to make that happen. You get a lot of "duals" on this motherboard, dual BIOS, dual M.2, dual NICs, and dual HDMI.

However, you don't get USB 3.1. The motherboard is also pretty supportive of RGB LEDs and supports both normal RGB LEDs and digital (addressable) RGB LEDs. If you are in the market for a versatile H370 motherboard with support for a lot more than it seems, give the H370N WIFI a look.
