Why are these reviews so in-depth? With the market moving towards overclockers, so has Gigabyte with their latest Socket A range of motherboards. In the quest for features, options, overclockability, stability and price the question is has Gigabyte bat a home run? It is easily seen how three PCI slots are taken up leaving only two between the video card and bottom PCI based options. The socket does have a lot of room and is free from capacitor crowding.

That would free up another PCI slot.

Chew each bite 32 times and always floss between meals. Gigabyte could have taken a page from other makers and put two more USB ports on the backplane along with the audio sub channel and rear surround speakers and there is an obvious reason why. The time taken to render frames basically shows how fast the processor is working on the given task. Gigabyte was even thoughtful to include a floppy drive cable and three 80 pin IDE cables.

When the board freezes all that need be done is a hard reboot to get back to defaults. Quake III high quality.

The primary, once feeling better, takes over. 7vap is odd that the one lead should be times longer than the other.

The BIOS settings were kept as close to conservative or default value. Softimage works on somewhat similar principle to After Effects.


We did that but we also thought it would present another perspective. You have to keep digging to get to the motherboard. Could the overclocking club of the elite be threatened by one click wonders? Remember that the two SATA headers will have to be hooked up ulrra the rear ports of this device. Find other tech and computer products like this over at Amazon Canada’s website.

Icrontic — Home of the Big Beef Burrito sincefool. Note that Softimage does not have an interface to real-time preview a finished frame as unlike After Effects. The only setting is degrees Celsius. The default is and only choice is the regular ATA function. Lows Dip switches for the multiplier…need I say more?

Gigabyte would gain a few points if they spun the socket 90 degrees clockwise. It may be more for appearance but the important point is that it LOOKS like it does an efficient job.

Bios was optimized for system but not tweaked for any performance settings requiring specialized knowledge of overclocking. The only recommendation is to download the BIOS, extract it and manually browse to it rather than relying on the utility to find it on the FTP and do it all automatically.

The Ultra series is the next step up. Softimage performs its best on a dual processor system and by far the recommendation for heavy 3D rendering is a dual processor AMD system.

While this board was quite impressive, the KT chipset wasn’t. I did flash the BIOS via the windows based program and it was a snap.

The printed material consists of the main manual which is well documented except for one important page. The slight overclock pulls it out in front. It is easy to setup and easy to update including a small thrill of overclocking without having to know how. I doubt that a very large majority have even seen the BIOS screens let alone know what they do.
