The GA-P35-DS3L is probably the better quad overclocker.
The main con of the abit is that some boards need a BIOS upgrade out of the box to fix the double-boot issue.
The flaws of both boards are that they don't have RAID, but thats no biggie.
Also IIRC the gigabyte board has all solid capacitors (better for overclocking and last longer), however the ip35-e only has half solid capacitors.
Also the abit BIOS is very chinglish (the gigabyte is too but to a lesser extent)

They fixed the boot issue. The new abit mobos are V1.1 and already updated to latest bios.

Alot of the stock in the UK still has the problem . So theres still a few floating about, hence why I said some. But if you buy from a big store, chances are it'll be v1.1.
I would still go for the gigabyte for a quad.

I just picked up the GA-P35 and it seems to be a decent board...(my first ever intel) So anyways...I like the bios...nice and friendly...I got it to do a little testing of intel and see how it goes...I had one issue I haven't found out if it is a bios setting or just a defect.

My lan shows as there and working fine in windows but it doesn't work..Wont find an IP...so still trouble shooting that one.. Stuck a NIC in and it worked fine...

I just got an IP35-E from Newegg that is still v1.0. Any idea what was corrected with the 1.1 revision?

If the Abit rebate is still on through Newegg you can get one for a steal, even with the possibility of getting a v1.0. I just set one up with an E2200 and it's working fine.

I've heard good things about the Giga DS3 boards, but what decided it for me was the success I've had with 3 previous generations of Abit boards (IT5, BH6, AI7). These go back around 10 years (if not more) to the first one, and I've had them all running for 24/7 OC'd without ever having a problem. The AI7 ran that way for a little over 5 years (with occasional CPU upgrades) until I just moved it out for the IP35-E.

I know Abit has been through some bad press the last few years (maybe deserved in some cases), but for me (so far) they've been alright.

According to the manufacturuer, The difference between the v1.0 and 1.1v is only the bios the board ships with.



As for the comparison, I would recommend the DS3L if you want ease of OCing. There will only be 16 settings to change in the bios for OCing.

The IP35-E is another great board with a little more bios tweaking. I think it will help you squeeze a little more of an OC out of your ram and CPU.

But to be honest. They both are great boards that offer stellar performance and OCability.

Agreed. ericeod says all. Abit is coming back.
