Summary: The board also ran slower than the lesser nForce boards in our Valve Particle test. As we’ve noted, this test seems more sensitive to latency, which we didn’t expect to be a problem since the RAM was manually set for both of the boards. As with the MSI P35 board, a BIOS update may be needed, but overall, performance was quite good.
Summary: If you're a gamer, and especially if you host LAN parties, you'll be interested in the features this Gigabyte board offers: full-speed SLI, four LAN ports and up to ten SATA ports, including four eSATA ports.
Pros: Heat-pipe cooling, silent cooling, four eSATA ports, full-speed SLI, four LAN ports, overclockable
Cons: Slow WorldBench score compared to competing boards we've tested
