Gigabyte Technology GA-P35-DS4, LGA 775/Socket T, Intel (GA-P35-DS4 (rev. 2.0)) Motherboard
Gigabyte has include an Ga-p35-dss4 Installation button to facilitate the driver gap35-ds4. Pioneering such technologies as the i-Ram and all solid capacitor design of their motherboards, it easy to see why they have grown to be a world class provider of technology to the home user. It is good to see that despite the fact that the memory on the GA-PDS4 is running at 2T ggiabyte rate rather than 1T that is with the i board, the performance is not being affected.
Gigabyte places the dual channel memory in banks that are far away from each other, so if you are running two sticks of RAM with gap35-ds4 memory heat sink, you will not run into any clearance issue. For those who are considering upgrading their system to the latest technology, the GA-PDS4 is a great choice as it offers a good balance of price and performance and not to mention that it will support future processor upgrade.
With easy to access PCIe locks like the ones on the GA-PDS4, it doesn’t matter if the videocard has a large double-slot heatsink, access is unimpeded.
In fact, they have total of 13 motherboards when I counted with Intel P35 chipset. An increased FSB speeds up data communication between the processor and system bus.

However, all these are minor complaints to a well-designed, feature-riched motherboard. The motherboard comes with ga-p35-fs4 of five fan headers: So let’s not repeat what we’ve already said in other reviews. One of the system fan and the CPU fan are 4-pin type connector while the rest of the fans are using 3-pin connector.
Once again, both boards perform equally well. Instead, let’s take a forward looking stance and ask ourselves why we cling to the parallel printer port? In addition, we see four USB headers, two Firewire headers, and an IDE connector which has gap35-ds4 rotated to 90 degrees from the motherboard.
We can see from the result, the performance of both boards are very close with the Gigabyte performs slightly better than the EVGA board.
Even when the board is overclocked, the Gigabyte board still consumes less power than the i in both idle and load condition. PC Health Status shows the system voltage and fan speed. In addition, you will find a wide range of software included though I am not sure if they are ga-p35-ds44 or full version. 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.
A Serial port is still plenty useful in networking environments, but parallel? This goes to show you that the synthetic benchmark does not always represent the real-life performance and each benchmark can vary. In a nod to improving your working environment and increasing the longevity of the motherboard itself, the GA-PDS4 features a totally silent copper heatpipe based chipset and MOSFET thermal solution.
GIGABYTE, one of the most well-known IT brands in the industry, started as a motherboard technology research laboratory with the passion of a few young engineers two decades ago. Not only that GSATAII does not have the best burst speed, it also lags slightly with the average read compared to the other two chipsets.
Memory ratio and the preset ratio is somewhat limited as we will show later with out overclocking result. Despite the fact that there are two X16 PCIE slot, only the primary slot supports 16 lanes while the secondary slot only supports 4 lanes.
Ports and connectors are labeled well, jacks and cables organized nicely. It is a tab where you pull the tab to release the card.
Memory ratio set at 2. The Gigabyte GA-PDS4 lacks the LED error code indicator like many of the enthusiasts motherboards which is quite unfortunate as it is somewhat expected to find it given to the price of this motherboard.

We ran 2MB and 4MB calculations. I was able to overclock the processor to 3. I do not particularly like how Gigabyte uses OK rather than display gigabute real voltage for the components.
