What we love the most is the silent heat pipe which works efficiently keeping the chipsets running cool while keeping the noise to absolutely silent. We can see that Gigabyte choose all silent heat pipe design for the Northbridge and Southbridge cooling. We can see that both boards have similar transfer speed.

The included four USB ports is gigabyte p35 ds4 little on gigabyte p35 ds4 shorter side and the lack of secondary Gigabit LAN ports is slightly disappointing as it is often gigabyte p35 ds4 on other similar priced motherboards. Both chipsets offers good mix of features and overclocking ability.

Users with i based motherboard probably will not be looking into switch to the GA-PDS4 board unless they plan to run Crossfire. Both of the chipsets have been on the market for awhile now and they have matured and run stable with excellent features and performance. We like the clear layout of the BIOS, which makes it easy to manipulate the speed settings, and it also includes an automatic overclocking setting that can kick in when the CPU load increases Gigabyte calls this setting C.

The Gigabyte has been a huge manufacturer of motherboards.

Gigabyte GA-PDS4 Specs – CNET

They came in various forms such as a tab or a lock and Gigabyte retention mechanism is slightly different. When ;35 overclocked the fan spun faster to accommodate the greater heat being generated as it should. Longer Life — All-Solid Capacitor Design Solid capacitors contain a solid organic polymer, while electrolytic capacitors use a common liquid electrolyte, hence, the terms solid capacitor versus electrolytic capacitors.


There is one FireWire port on the rear panel, as well as two gigabit Ethernet ports. The closeness of the memory slots could cause problem for users with four sticks who wishes gigabyte p35 ds4 overclock. PC Health Status shows the system voltage and fan speed. I gigabyte p35 ds4 able to overclock the processor to 3. With the multiplier set at 9x, I was able to get a MHz with 2.

The board comes with gigabyte p35 ds4 switching voltage regulator, though not as much as other enthusiasts boards like i, it should offer plenty of overclocking potential. The slight performance gain may simply due to the 2T vs 1T command rate.

We can see from the result, the performance of both boards are very close with the Gigabyte performs gigabyte p35 ds4 better than the EVGA board. This board has 12 USB 2.

Be sure to gogabyte into the revision 2. The EVGA i has the gigabyte p35 ds4 to overclock the FSB and the memory independently and the motherboard will automatically set the appropriate ratio.

Both boards are targeted toward the same users as they both packed with overclocking features gigabyte p35 ds4 priced at similar range. At first glance, I thought, something is missing.


There are two issues which I think some users may face. Memory ratio, it would limited the FSB options slightly. We had to run the chipset installation utility on the supplied driver CD in order to get this gigabyte p35 ds4 installed correctly.

Nothing unusual is found under the Power Management Menu. The interface should come pretty familiar. The i board do win a few gigabyte p35 ds4 but the lead is usually small and the GA-PDS4 do outperforms the gigbayte, especially in the storage and real-world gaming performance.

Memory ratio set at 2. I need power and lots of it. Despite the fact that there are two X16 PCIE slot, only the primary slot supports 16 lanes gigabyte p35 ds4 the secondary slot only supports 4 lanes.

Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Sign in with LinkedIn Sign in with Facebook.

Nonetheless, the board provides plenty of options for anyone who wishes to tweak their system. But, it’s not totally modern.
