It is mounted to the chassis using 8 screws while the lower right corner remains unfixed. On one hand it is good, because it allows to install a massive CPU cooler, on the other hand the placement of chipset in the area of expansion slots suggests using a low-profile heat sink, which, to make things worse, turns out to be in still-air zone while large video adapter coolers can additionally block airflow to the chipset.
Overclocking In order to evaluate the overclocking capabilities of the board and its BIOS, we overclock our testbed CPU to the highest frequency ethegnet that also allows for stable operation. Its appearance on AMD G chipset motherboards is followed by introduction of this rectangular port to GeForce chipset motherboards.

They sometimes reach over degrees C, as is the case with video adapter components, and it is not a reason for concern unless glitches are detected.
This model on manufacturer’s web-site Board was kindly provided for testing by the manufacturer Dmitriy Laptev lpt ixbt.
Sandy Bridge Tehernet out the new method.
Applying this test procedure, we are able to effectively use all of the test board’s supported abilities, including increasing processor core voltage, and if necessary, correcting multipliers and adjusting system and peripheral bus frequencies. Therefore, further simplification seems logical this time, given the significantly reduced need for cooling. Significantly hot, in the opinion of some testers, who for whatever reason think that while measuring temperature “by touch” one’s finger “must bear the heat”, but who disregard the fact that operating temperatures of modern chips may be much higher than what the pain threshold allows.
CPU overclocking capabilities at standard core voltage turned out to be the acceleration bottleneck. For this reason, it is impossible for us, k9ngmm3 any other review, to determine the overclocking potential of any board with megahertz precision. We have only two complaints related to settings — insufficient range of CPU core voltage control although, it is k9ngk3 by the board’s category and lack of HT-bus multiplier selection which isn’t difficult to add in any case.

We have already examined their first possible choice — Biostar’s board. Whereas AMD has already attracted all major manufacturers and most of small ones including even very small ones, if one takes a look at what is being offered in the rather conservative industrial board segment. The practical goal of our test is to find out if the CPU’s etehrnet overclocking potential is hindered by the board and to evaluate the board’s behavior in non-standard BIOS modes.
This test also assesses the board’s ability to automatically revert to correct frequencies in the case of system hang-ups, excessive overclocking, etc. The reason why board manufacturers are not responding very actively to GeForce is the delay in its release. Once threshold is exceeded rotation frequency is gradually increased to maximum.
This board has good overclocking capabilities and excellent functionality. The board successfully passed all tests, etnernet the chipset heat sink of course was hot in modes of maximum load on the graphics core.
The board houses all elements provided for by design except a DVI-port. Video 3Digests Video cards: Based on comparison of these chipsets we have established their equivalence “in points”.
Frequency response 40 Hz to 15 kHzdB: One reason is that only two manufacturers at present provide GeForce chipset on their boards. HDMI-DVI-adapter would have been a very useful addition to the standard package, considering the lack of a corresponding port. RAM is set by using multiplier correction to the standard frequency for the modules being used, unless the manufacturer specifies methods for improving memory overclocking, in which case their effectiveness is also explored.

Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Capacitor manufacturer couldn’t be identified. Results are close to upper limit for the codec being used. However, if lowering Hyper-Transport frequency, for example, doesn’t improve overclocking performance, the default multiplier is used instead.
A rare board of this category can operate at such high HT frequency without having to raise chipset voltage. Board’s form factor is microATX x mm. l9ngm3
Frequency control is only supported for fans with 4-pin connectors.
