Gigabyte has long been a very big name in computer hardware. They manufacture almost any sort of hardware you can imagine. High quality computer cases, motherboards, video cards, laptops, CPU coolers, you name it they have it (they even have a cell phone!). Like ASUS, they are able to diversify and cover a massive segment of the industry, and they are able to do this without sacrificing quality and performance. An impressive feat indeed. Not so long ago, Gigabyte made a massive splash in the enthusiast/overclocking world with their release of the board known as the DS3. The 965P-DS3 was one of the best overclocking motherboards ever to be released on the market. Not only was it brilliantly designed, but very importantly, it was brilliantly priced. Everyone could afford it because it was not only better performing, but also cheaper than the competition. Overclocking was BY FAR the easiest we have ever encountered in all our years of experience. This is also partially because almost all of the Core 2 Duos are simply beasts. The P35-DS3P that we will be looking at today carries the same DS3 mark. This board is really the successor to the incredible 965P-DS3 and should be held to the same standards of quality and performance.

Features:

· Supports new upcoming 45nm processors
· Supports DDR2
· Dual PCI-E x16 slots
· SATA 3Gb/s with RAID
· Gigabit Ethernet
· IEEE1394 Firewire port
· Audio Controller from ALC889A that supports Blu-ray and HD DVD formats
· Intel ICH9R Chipset

The included accessories are basic, but also more than adequate. Included in the box were four Serial ATA cables, two IDE cables (even though the motherboard only has one IDE connection), one eSATA cable, one 4-pin molex to SATA power cable, one eSATA bracket with 4-pin external molex, one I/O back plate, one Gigabyte user's manual, and the P35-DS3P motherboard itself. Everything had arrived safely without any problems.
