The Gigabyte GA H81M-S1 is a low-end Intel Haswell motherboard. It supports all Intel Haswell processors with Socket 1150. This is a pretty old motherboard but I think it still supports the recent workloads. This GA H81M motherboard series also works with Hackintosh pretty well. I have tested several Hackintosh systems on my GA H81M using Intel Core i5 4590. So I would like to dedicate this page to GA H81M users. If you still own this motherboard, you still can do many things with your system.
