Gigabyte have come so far so fast with their improved motherboards. Gigabyte's history has been plagued with bugs, boards that fall short in the benchmarks or boards that make so sense at all. Not anymore.
On the Performance side of things, Gigabyte has done a better than average job of squeezing as must raw speed out of the SiS 645 powerhouse chipset. Stability was at its maximum and took well over eight hours of repeated torture tests to make our system fail, and this was only a memory failure. DDR-333, while an excellent technology, is very susceptible to EMI.
Overclocking was, without a doubt, so flexible that this board could be bent in half and back again. We managed 135MHz FSB and memory clock at 186MHz, and still Windows XP kept its cool and ran all out benchmarks.
In regards to features, well, there aren't a super amount to speak of but for what this baby has, it's remarkable the price is so low; undercutting the EPoX board by a good $20 AUS.
In all, I can only say this is the P4 board that I have always wanted to find, its going to be hard to top this baby off until A2 SiS 645 boards make it into the market place.
