Being our first ever SiS 655FX chipset board, we have a mixed bag of emotions. While it does give some good scores, its only flaw is the manufacturers adoption. Gigabyte are normally known for great featured boards with good overclocking, but this time they have let us down with a very mild range of overclocking options.
While most of us would tend to stay away from SiS chipsets after this review, we must remind you that this is only one board so far and we wouldn't judge the chipset on just this one board. However, a bit more research on the manufacturers side of things could have and would have made this a much more successful product.
Overall a good performing chipset was let down by a rather flawed overclocking and optimization side. If you are looking for value with a bit of kick, this is it. BUT overclockers beware, this board isn't for you.
Serial ATA RAID
Rather poor overclocking
