We’d go so far as to say that these are almost extreme options, options that will delight those who practice in overclocking. That’s what we like to see. Unfortunately, overclocking options are kept to a bare minimum with a lack of RAM voltage adjustment coupled with limited CPU voltage adjustment. Supports Socket for Intel Pentium 4 processors. As you can see, there are a bank of dip-swtiches just to the right of the DDR slots.

Had problems with large file transfers rebooting the system. Gigabyte has been in the business of making motherboards for quite some time now; since to be exact. FSB speeds of Mhz – Mhz quad-pumped.

Let’s see how we get on here. Supports Socket for Intel Pentium 4 processors.

As a rule, integrated solutions use a part of the system memory for the video one, and here, in the BIOS, you can assign from 8 to 64 MBytes for the frame buffer. Unfortunately for VIA, the lawsuit between themselves and Intel, with respect to PIV licenses, deterred many top-line motherboard manufacturers from producing boards based on their chipset. Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. Gigabyte have made themselves a reputation for delivering OEM quality boards, more designed for stability and integration into workstation and business environments rather than an overclocked rig.


If I’m going to spend the extra money on a P4, I’m going to spend the extra money for an Intel chipset and maybe even an Intel brand motherboard to run it on; so that I have platform continuity.

Our calculations show that motherboaed a shade over 6 minutes can be saved from the encoding time of a 2 hour movie when simply changing memory modes, a very real and practical benefit for DDR PC memory on a SiS P4 platform. I know that the ECS sis board is out at Newegg.

We used our highly overclockable 1. We’re glad to see 6 bit PCI slots make an appearance, so often motherboard manufacturers sacrifice one in favour of the rather redundant CNR slot. BioShock Infinite and Metro: The frankly amazing range of voltage options could motherbowrd considered a feature almost unique to Epox.

Installation was a breeze with no untoward incidents to mothefboard. The relative coolness of the passive North bridge heatsink is testament to how cool the NB runs.

Further investigation in the box reveals a rather well written manual, the ubiquitous IDE cables in the form of one ATA and one floppy cable respectively, we would have liked to see two ATA cables supplied as standard, surely a motherboard manufacturer wouldn’t incur much of a surcharge by supplying another?. By the way, the memory doesn’t affect games.


We’d go so far as to say that these are almost extreme options, options that will delight those who practice in overclocking. We have mixed feeling regarding the Epox 4SDA. We should bear this in mind when comparing benchmarks that are as close as these.

The AGP has a locking mechanism, ensuring that your card does not become displaced once inserted. six

Benchmark Results Page Testing for stability seems to be a non-event recently. Thu Dec 06, 8: Jul 21, Posts: And a red motherboard would look damn nice in a black case.

Fri Dec 07, 5: Once rebooted it guesses a decent, overclocked speed, quite clever really. Stability was excellent, too. As you can no doubt see, there mothwrboard quite a gap between the AGP slot and the first PCI slot, whether this is by deliberate design is unclear, it does however allow one to use a slightly larger cooler on the GPU core if need be.
