  • Summary: The GA-EP45-DQ6 is a bit pricey for a P45 board—about $70 more than the faster, but not as well spec’d, P45 Platinum. And its price is within striking distance of X48-based boards, which are superior for CrossFire applications. Still, if Gigabyte can correct the performance kinks, this is a pretty nice board for someone who isn’t running multi-GPU applications and, of course, just loves Gigabit ports.
  • Pros: Healthy dose of PCI-E slots and well-labeled USB and FireWire headers.
  • Cons: Performance lags behind other P45-based motherboards.

GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DQ6 Motherboard Review

PC Perspective
5 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Enthusiasts have experienced a rash of motherboard chipset releases as of late, with no shortage of such releases coming from the Intel camp alone. The new introductions have ranged from the X38, X48 and the P45. Compound that with the fact that both DDR2 and DDR3 flavors generally exist for each, and you have a large number of models making their way to the market.

  • Conclusion: Lets deal with the negatives first and get that out of the way. If your using a full length NVIDIA GPU like the new GTX-260 with it’s full length cowling your going to obscure a couple of Sata ports. In testing the full length GPU barely touched the flat Sata connectors but still it’s enough to make you uncomfortable about using them. The full length Sapphire 4870 and the 4850 we tested didn’t obscure any ports.

Gigabyte GA-EP45-DQ6 P45 Motherboard Review

Hardware Canucks

  • Conclusion: At the start of this review we asked whether Gigabyte had created the complete package with the EP45-DQ6…a fast, fully-featured, overclockable, stable motherboard with no show-stopping faults. Now, after our exhaustive review, we can state that they have mostly succeeded. There are still some faults like the blocking a SATA port when the second PCI-E x16 slots is in use, or the minimal temperature & voltage readouts, but no product as complex as a motherboard will ever...
  • Pros: Longest features list in the history of features lists, Excellent overclocking capabilities, Great cooling system, Quad VGA Support, Fantastic BIOS, EasyTune6, Good layout
  • Cons: Expensive (but worth it if you need all of the features), Wish there was an option to disable the onboard LEDs in the BIOS, Not enough temperature and voltages readouts/sensors, Some SATA ports blocked when a graphics cards is installed in the second PCI-E x16 slot

Gigabyte EP45-DQ6 Review

  • Conclusion: Ok, tengo que admitirlo. Este motherboard es excelente producto para lo que ofrece. Las funciones  exclusivas de Gigabyte además de todas las características propias son algo que para una persona entusiasta, que gusta de facilitarse la vida y de tener un PC muy completo no va a desaprovechar. Este producto no está dirigido a la  gente que gusta del Overclocking Extremo, sin embargo los resultados no son pobres y están por arriba del estándar.
