Gigabyte GA-8SIML Motherboard Review

With the recent addition of so many motherboards into the current market, there are just too many to choose from. And with all of this newfound technology, many manufacturers have made the prices about the same across the board to remain competitive. Come join Cameron "Sov" Johnson as he takes a look at the Gigabyte GA-8SIML Motherboard. It is a value board that actually costs less than many of the competitors and is based on the new SiS650 chipset. Can this low-cost board be considered in the same league as so many others?

Introduction

 

 

Gigabyte have recently made a bigger and better name for themselves. Once known as the board of choice to run over with a tank, they have come up in the world to a respectable class of value motherboard makers.

 

Gigabyte's real accomplishments haven't been in the AMD sector, but rather in the Intel sector with a board for all your needs. Gigabyte has already released two big hit P4 motherboards; the 8IRXP and the 8SRX. Both have their benefits and their disadvantages, both are top performers and both support what is most important these days... Stability and overclocking.

 

The 9IRXP proved to be the biggest overclockers from Gigabyte in some time and this has only good implications for sales. Now Gigabyte has focused on making value boards for Pentium 4. Once again thanks to Rectron Australia, we have our hands on another Gigabyte motherboard, the 8SIML SiS 650 motherboard.
