Asus P4G8X Granite Bay Motherboard Review

Conclusion

 

In the end we have an excellent board that is defiantly worth having a look at, like most Asus boards it packed to the top of the box with extra little extras which will defiantly come in handy.

 

We were able to take the processor up to 166MHz FSB but it began to become unstable due to heat. Overall Asus have released another great motherboard on the market and while it is slightly more expensive then other Granite Bay motherboards, you do sometimes pay for a name which in the case of the Asus P4G8X equals quality.

 

- Pros

 

Slightly faster then the 845PE chipset

 

Gigabit LAN

 

Easy Overclocking

 

Serial ATA Raid

 

Dual Channel DDR

 

- Cons

 

Pricing is slightly steep

 

No official 333 MHz memory support
