Abit AB9 P965 Conroe Motherboard
Published: 21st September 2006 | Source: Abit | Price: |Conclusion
I am most impressed with this fairly cheap Intel p965 board. Abit have done a good job implementing great overclocking along with some solid features. The board is either on par, or in some tests: quicker than the Intel "Bad Axe" motherboard. This is most impressive.
One big concern I have with the board is the layout. The poor placement of the main IDE and JMicron SATA connecters lets an otherwise solid board down.
I am giving this board a "Value for Money" award. coming in at around £93 for the non-Pro board @ Specialtech and £111 for the Pro board @ SpecialTech, this represents a good solid value board
+ Competitive Speed
+ Decent Bundle
+ Good value for money
+ Very good overclockability
- Bad IDE positioning
- Bad SATA positioning
- RAM voltage adjustment a little low
Thanks to Abit for the sample
