Summary: When Gigabyte contacted me about
reviewing their latest P35 midrange board, I was pretty excited. Intel
chipped in with a CPU for testing needs. Supertalent made sure I had
memory on hand. Finally ATI/AMD was kind enough to have shipped me
those CrossFire cards last year.
Pros: Very stable, Excellent build quality, Solid caps all around, Excellent power delivery to the CPU, Very good chipset cooling, Nice expansion capabilities, Decent SATA placement, Quiet board, Nice power cable placement
Cons: Realtek audio and networking, No cooling on CPU power circuitry
Summary: The performance on the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3P motherboard was flawless.
It also allowed for superior overclocking abilities with the Core 2 Duo E6300
compared to the previous GA-965P-DS3 motherboard, which was a pleasant surprise.
