P35 Performance / Stability / Quality - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Just ordered the DS3P but not an E4300 just yet.

So, next week I'll have a chance to test the Q6600 and P35 Board setup. I'm thinking I should've gone with some 1066 Memory as well... because I'm not sure the HZ's can run on super-high clocks. =\\

I am getting the abit p35 on monday and will do a review/build log thing on it. I guess pauldovi that I am a fool because I like high overclocks but then again only a fool would buy a p35 when he has a nice quadgt allready.

Ill let you all know how it does by the latest of wednesday with stability shots and all that. Gonna run a raid this time too I think, not sure what one yet though.


EDIT: oh and I was seeing that they were getting similer performance to the quadgt/ any fast 1066 board at the same clocks so not much of a improvement performance wise besides being able to hit higher fsb with less trouble.

Hey great, Max. Now we'll have three different reviews for three different manufacturers right here on OCN.

Abit
Asus
Gigabyte P35C DS3R, P35 DS3P

Don't get me wrong. The QuadGT is great....

Unfortunately, the QuadGT doesn't have any x64 Vista drivers which is causing bad performance on my RAID array.

Thats a bummer, guess I am glad that I am moving my xp install over to my quadgt board and keeping my vista for my upcoming p35 board.

hopefully the abit p35 will have plenty of drivers when it comes out. The only thing I am worried about is abit and there updates that never seem to happen.

Abit is just bad in terms of software support.

Everything, I mean everything was auto-detected by Vista and installed. I didn't have a single issue. Printers are so much more stable than in XP.

Only Abit did not get good software engineers or something.

I was very pleased with the P5K I owned for a week.

I am looking at the P5K3 Deluxe WiFi ATM and think that mayy be a good long term board for me.

First thing I noticed was the board ran really cool--the CPU ran really cool . The second thing I noticed was the CPU voltage was always low--even when set higher in BIOS it would still stay low until put under extreme load.

The voltage dampers and stuff on the Asus board are the real deal.

The third thing that really sells me on the 35 is the incredible boost in RAM bandwidth. As my benchmarks show the DDR800 overclocks perfectly to 1151 Orthos stable and the bandwidth is off the charts.

I would say that right now this is the most potent chipset out there for LGA 775

I think X38 will impress you even more!
