Gigabyte's GA-EP45-DS3L motherboard has been optimized to work with today's 45nm processors. This lets the board be more efficient. The board has dynamic 4 gear power switching. As your system needs more power it gets it and when the power load goes down, so does the supplied power. This lets you have power when you need it, and save energy and money when you don't.

CPU power isn't the only thing that is energy regulated. The Gigabit Ethernet connection tests the connection for length and signal strength and optimizes transmission power for the connection. To control it all you can use the newly redesigned Easy Tune 6 to fine tune all your settings.

System durability and security are as important as ever. Gigabyte's DualBIOS system has a second BIOS chip on the motherboard for quick and painless recovery from crashes and viruses. They also built the motherboard with all conductive polymer aluminum solid capacitors for increased longevity and power efficiency.

Awesome

Pros: Fantastic and fast. My first Intel chip build. Painless.

Cons: I'm shocked that I am actually running out of USB ports.

Other Thoughts: The mobo will dynamically over and underclock to respond to better performance or for power saving. You can adjust the intensity at which it changes these settings. I accidentally change it too high and the machine became unstable (this is the same as overclocking a CPU). Find the right setting and enjoy.

Great mobo

Pros: The board works! Great for OSx86...

Cons: You may need to update the BIOS for it to recognize more recent processors properly, but it isn't a big deal to do and has fail-safes in place in case something screws up during the flash.

Other Thoughts: This was my first LGA 775 processor install and it was nail biting at times, but nothing got broken and everything works!

My rig: E7300 C2D, 8GB of RAM (Maxed out), 2 x 640GB WD, Geforce 7900GS 256MB (need a better card someday...)

Great Board Great Price

Pros: Price and ease of install. Installed it with a Q9400 Quad CPU with 4gb memory. Went extremely smooth and painless. Booted 1st time and haven't had any real problems since. Getting $15.00 rebate was a nice benefit too. Thanks Newegg!

Cons: None Really. Only problem has been the F-Audio, but I really don't use headphones.

Other Thoughts: For the price, I don't think I could have gotten a better deal. So far, I am really pleased on how it has been going. I have built several systems in the past, and this one has gone the easiest so far.

5/ 5

Pros: Paired with a Q8300 and 4GB of OCZ Reaper DDR2 1066. BIOS has a recent revision so it saw the processor just fine.

Haven't bothered/tried to overclock but has been perfectly stable at stock speeds.

Cons: None
