Gigabyte vs ABIT - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Ok, well I looked up the ULI chipset, and some reviews of it, and it seems that it is not a bad overclocker, but not the best. A couple reviews of certain boards said that they had no AGP/PCI locks, which definatly kills overclocking. But not sure if thats the chipset or individual baords, as nobody says...But I stand correected, this might be a bit better then VIA, but still, Nforce is still the way to go IMO

There is NO compareson between Abit and Gigabyte?
Abit is so far ahead in technology there can't possibly be any compareson.

Visit http://forum.abit-usa.com/index.php?s=

There are some posts there on the Abit board.
No negative remarks of any kind anywhere.

What are you basing this on? They have the same specs... The same chipset...

So far ahead in Technology? Well, I don't know what technology your talking about, as all mobo manufactures are limited by Intel, AMD, Nvidia to build anything, as they make the chipsets and chips.

Abit has Uguru, and thats about it for 'ahead technology' otherwise, Gigabyte came out with the First 975X mobo, Asus has the best Intel mobo to date, DFI has the best 939 AMD mobo, and Abit is in about second to third place with everything. Even Gigabyte has the dual bios feature on almost every board, and I believe that Abit has it on 1 board. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Abit, but what are you talking about so far ahead in Technology?

I agree, I have a gigabyte board and I love it. I do have the nf2 chipset though. Also if you happen to get the same kinda bios as I have, holding ctrl and pressing f1 unlocks ALL KINDS of extra settings (i.e. agp lock, extra fsb settings, memory divider access, and much more). Good luck with your overclock.

Weird my old board was an Auss A7N8X deluxe rev1.xx and i was verry happy with it. i oc my 2700+ thouroghbred to 2300mhz with 200mhz fsb and rams, worked really fine. Now my dad has it and he is *cough* stock *cough*. lol poor old board of mine.

I dunno... mine was a rev 2. The bios ended up corrupting so maybe that had something to do with the Crappy OC. I was trying to hit 2.6 with it.
