    Default High-end and Luxury P45 - GIGABYTE P45T EXTREME Air-Cooling 659MHz Reached

    In 2008, Intel launches 2 latest Chipset which are P45 and X58 plus ICH10.
    These architectures are new goal for all the motherboard manufacturers.
    P series always become the mid-high end products.
    As per the experience, Intel P35/45 is still the most popular products as the OC ability is easily to catch X series.

    GIGABYTE is always very good at Intel MB product line and separate products into DS3/DS4/DQ6 3 levels,
    the familiar model names for users buying guide by budget.

    In new P45 Chipset, GIGABYTE launched a new model is more hi-end than DQ6.
    The leading role of this test - GIGABYTE P45T EXTREME.
    For a long time, DQ6 is always the most hi-end model.
    However, after then Extreme series is the new flag ship.

    Left Down Corner
    1 X PCIE X1
    3 X PCIE(Blue slot run at x16 as exclusive used. When you use 3 VGA, the slots operate at x8+x8+x4)
    3 x PCI
    Realtek 8111C is LAN chip supporting Teaming technology
    Realtek ALC889A supports 7.1 channel and High Definition Audio. It also supports Dolby sound even user only use 2 channel speakers.
    PCB is MADE IN TAIWAN


    Right Down Corner
    6 x SATAII (By ICH10R)
    1 x IDE
    POWER/RESET buttons, Debug LED (the rare design in GIGABYTE products)


    Right Up Corner
    4 x DIMM DDR3, supports 800/1066/1333/1900,1900 is spec after OC
    DRAM provide extra2 phase PWM, the next by is 24-pin power connector

    CPU PWM, use 6+6 phases PWM and support DES advanced technology.
    The new VRD11.1 design guide, Intel E0 CPU will run with Intel latest energy saving technology.
    In my personal view, the 6-phase CPU PWM or support 8-phase in digital are good enough for the hi-end model.
    Ex. GIGABYTE uses 6+6-phase, DFI uses 8-phase digital.
    The entry like Biostar uses 4-phase PWM also can run Dual core and Quad core OC.
    The great benefits are power saving and environmental protection.


    IO Part
    6 X USB 2.0
    2 X RJ-45 Jack
    1 X S/PDIF
    Additional Clear COMS button


    The heat sink comes with board
    GIGABYTE always use very good quality components compares to the same price level products.
    This time uses 100% cooper thermal module which is good looking and better thermal dissipation.


    This thermal module is very beautiful design. There is another 2-phase PWM for MCH.

    For the water-block built-in module, GIGABYTE provides a special and power thermal kit - Hybird SLENT-PIPE


    100% cooper provides the best quality for thermal solution


    The Hybird SLENT-PIPE install at the PCI-e slot position.
    It also enhances the whole system thermal solution.
    (Installing Hybird SLENT-PIPE will occupy 1 PCI-e x1)

    BIOS Main Menu
    This model puts M.I.T as the 1st position without hiding.
    It is absolutely designed for OC and performance.


    M.I.T. Page
    CPU Frequency and ratio
    Intel XMP DRAM OC technology is included


    DRAM parameters


    Providing very wide voltage range
    CPU Vcore 0.5000~2.30000V
    CPU Terminating 0.800~1.800V
    CPU PLL 1.100~2.800V

    MCH Core 0.800~1.800V
    MCH Reference 0.500~1.045V
    ICH I/O 1.000~2.300V
    DARM Voltage 1.500~2.500V
    DRAM Termination 0.7365~1.440V

    CPU/DRAM ratio meets all frequency CPU


    Advanced CPU options
    CPU Clock Skew can adjust by 50~150ps to reach higher frequency


    Advanced DRAM options also provide rich parameters

    These 2 parts are similar to CPUZ. It is not as detail as CPUZ, but the info is enough.

    Frequency and Voltage can adjust in this software.




    Also provides VGA OC by software


    C.I.A. 2 and Smart Fan

    Voltage, Temperature and FAN speed info


    EasyTune6 integrated all necessary features and info into one software. It is very convenient.

    MB also has LED to display the DRAM voltage and PWN loading status.


    Just mention, this time I also use JETART Nano Diamond thermal pad to replace Y-500



    VGA
    Using Gigabyte HD4870 DDR5 512MB CorssFire which is the hottest VGA combo at the moment.

    Default Colck 750/1100Mhz
    3DMARK2003


    3DMARK2005


    3DMARK2006


    2008 most popular game - Crysis


    Now, the highest C/P values VGA are 4850 and 4870 for sure.
    GIGABYTE HD4870 DDR5 512MB CorssFire is really fast, especially in Crysis it has very high pages ratio even in 1920x1200
