Abit IP35-E Socket 775 Motherboard Review

Posted Image

P35! Huh? For those who don't know, P35 is the designation for Intel's newest chipset on the market. This chipset is the successor to the highly successful Intel 965 chipset. What I have today is Abit's entry level board into this market. "Off Limits" is the slogan Abit is using to tout this new series of motherboards that it has developed. Even though this is the entry level board in the series, it is not short on features. HDMI ready, 12 USB ports, support for the newest Intel 1333 FSB processors, and 7.1 surround sound make this board ready for action. Seeing that this is the entry level, I am curious as to how well it performs against some of the chipsets and motherboards on the market today. Let's find out.

The bad was that my CPU would only run a max FSB of 355. While this is not a big issue, with a higher multiplier I was expecting a little more. With that being said, 3550 MHz isn't too shabby of an overclock.

It was in the conclusion :P

Not a bad performing board for a $119 :)

Hey everyone :)

Found the forums from this review, as this is the motherboard I'm currently considering for my new E6420 build. I'd be interested to hear if anyone else has picked one up to play with and what results they're having. Great review, by the way.
