Default Gigabyte GA-EP45-DQ6: The Most Overclocker Mainboard Out There

Even Gigabyte representatives admit that their Gigabyte GA-EP45-DQ6 mainboard is not ideal. The board itself as well as the BIOS Setup and the brand name software are not free from a few issues. We have pointed them all out in our todayís review. However, all of them are not very serious and get completely forgotten in the light of phenomenal overclocking potential of Gigabyte GA-EP45-DQ6. We havenít yet seen a mainboard that would overclock dual- as well as quad-core processors so easily and impressively as Gigabyte GA-EP45-DQ6. In fact, these results are not final yet. We are going to continue working with this board and will certainly keep updating you regarding its progress in our lab on a long-term basis.

Mainboard is a very complex high-tech solution. There are many reasons why one model may perform differently from another same model. Of course, you may think that we were just lucky with a particular mainboard sample and some other Gigabyte GA-EP45-DQ6 may not be able to show the same impressive results. However, we will hardly test another Gigabyte GA-EP45-DQ6 sample in the near future. You will have to agree that far not everyone will actually use all four network cards. Besides, the price of this top solution is pretty high, too. Therefore, it is even more interesting to check out a few other models from unprecedentedly large lineup of Gigabyte solutions on Intel P45 Express. In the beginning of our Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3 review we have mentioned all of them already. Particularly promising is Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS5. However, if you donít need to connect a lot of hard drives and are not interested in Smart Backup technology, then check out Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS4. We will do our best to test them as well and share the results very soon.
