I’m waiting for an answer back from Gigabyte on this issue. The DPS is cooled by an Everflow fan which is nearly impossible to find the specifications for. Gigabyte has made improvements to the orientation of the DPS module from previous motherboards incorporating this feature. Let me know what you find out. The novice only knows what they see and what their pocketbook tells them. The only quirk is the placement of the power fan header.

What intelligent Fan-Features has Gigabyte to offer? Just read your article. Let me know lzn you find out. OS installed to C: There is a choice of GUI interfaces on the desktop and software translation language under the hood to the Realtek AC97 audio.

The perceived audio quality between the two is identical. Gigabyte includes 2 manuals motherboard and Sata Raid which are excellent for the novice and intermediate user but need to be updated in a few areas including documentation on the hidden BIOS features revealed by CTRL-F1. I’m know the firewall part of ForceWare will install because the nForce3 Ultra inherently supports it, but if it’s not used properly? Note the group of seven capacitors. The second is power usage.

I have used both Corsair and Crucial 2 x with no problems. Now we sit at over FPS with the screen set to a high resolution and detail. Those are for the SoundStorm package and will not install. Quake III continues to hang around.

A hint for those sharing drives over a LAN. While in render mode the two test programs virtually bypass ram and GPU. Four measurement sets were used.

It can be incredibly easy or very detailed.

Five PCI slots are available which is still a standard compliment for most motherboards. The only Asus mb is the a8v”. The thorn in our sides is the installation CD.

Gigabyte has the option to produce a pin motherboard with every feature of the nForce3 chipset implemented but, like all manufacturers who go this route, it will be at a cost to the consumer.

I’ve been unable to get this mobo stable in dual channel mode. I’ve had some funky Corsair ram before and it’s best to start with double checking the ram for full functionality. Second place is only the difference of a very few frames per second. Gigabyte flagship boards are extremely well-equipped on the motherboard and in the accessories. The first has high and low detail with Anti Aliasing and Anisotropic filtering turned off.


I am beginning to think this ram needs more power than the board can produce. A faster pgy will result in a faster render.

A processor that runs at lower voltage outputs less heat. The heatsynch and mounting are both symmetrical, so you llan mount it in either direction. Expect small gains only.

The RAM timing functions are most certainly extensive but Socket and processors are finicky about overclocking the CPU clock ratios.

Rendering, or the task of building and compiling frames, is primarily CPU intensive and After Effects generally bypasses the video card to rely solely upon the processor for speed. Users can manipulate objects in a choice of views from wire frame mode to simulated real-time shading mode. Mount it the retail heatsynch with the lever facing toward the PCI slots and the lever will not get in the way and you have TONS of room.

It is rock solid in single-channel mode, but significantly slower.
