However, most motherboards allow manual control of these bus frequencies, so you can use this feature for any video card. All the three come with passive cooling systems of different configurations. This fact is also confirmed by results in Unreal Tournament — this game is critical to memory settings. But if you compare platforms in general, you’ll find out that motherboards with nForce SLI-like functions for AMD are always cheaper than those for Intel. According to specs, it’s PCI Express x8. At the same time, nForce SLI-based motherboards are getting more and more practical:

Conclusions Roundups of motherboards on top chipsets rarely reveal explicit leaders and outsiders. All the three come with passive cooling systems of different configurations.

CPU overclocking options, including voltage control and other tweaks, are available in all our motherboards. MSI K9N Diamond shoots forward in computational tests if this word is appropriate for several percents of difference. So this article will sum our reviews up. Sandy Bridge Trying out the it816f-s method.
This fact is also confirmed by results in Unreal Tournament — this game is critical to memory settings. Foxconn’s bundle is not as good, but this motherboard supports FireWire and digital output of multichannel audio to Dolby Digital.
Connector for a chassis intrusion sensor, three connectors for thermal sensors. All contenders support both brand features of the chipset — choosing optimal memory timings from the extended EPP in Corsair modules for overclockers this technology may also spread to products from other companies and NVIDIA LinkBoost.
Differences between graphical interfaces are evident of course, they are insignificant, even hardly noticeable in practice. Performance tests Testbed configuration: It’s equipped with a passive chipset cooling system with heat pipes and an additional graphics port.
It makes them more attractive to owners of good IDE devices, which should be preserved after upgrade. But what concerns detecting minor timings the main timings are fixed in our testsall motherboards are auio a similar position. And ASUS offers three models for different target audiences.

Dmitry Laptev lpt ixbt. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: And you should really see the Crosshair “in flesh”, a brief description is useless. Video 3Digests Video cards: But if you compare platforms in general, you’ll find out that motherboards with it8716f-ss SLI-like functions for AMD are always cheaper than those for Intel.
It may also come in handy in future for asymmetric SLI configurations, where the third video card will be used for computing physics in games.
It goes without saying that there is a point in buying a motherboard with SLI support especially based on the top chipset only if you are interested in modern 3D games or if you build a graphical station and need expanded peripheral functionality of this chipset.
The latter require at least indirect ventilation from a CPU fan even in the standard operating mode. Equally-priced Core 2 Duo and Athlon 64 X2 processors demonstrate similar performance. If you like to connect a computer to consumer electronics via a digital channel, you’ll be pleased to have on-the-fly encoding of a multi-channel stream into DTS and Dolby Digital formats.
The idea of stable power supply is perfected in Crosshair there are no capacitors at all.

However, we are not going to persuade our readers, we’ll test motherboards and draw conclusions. What concerns performance, no matter how hard marketing guys try to prove otherwise, a video card still remains the true bottleneck of modern games to be more audiio, capacity of the GPU to process pixel shaders.
Testing the integrated audio quality The integrated audio quality of each model was tested in 16bit, 44 kHz using RightMark Audio Analyzer 5. But there are some nuances: Nevertheless, to get excellent overclocking results, you should get a CPU cooler, which can also blow at chipset heatsinks in all cases fortunately, they are rather close to each auxio.

Connector for a chassis intrusion sensor, TPM connector. The advantage is illustrative including subjective audition. However, most motherboards allow manual control of these bus frequencies, so you can use this feature for any video card.
