For the Stability test I ran Orthos which is a dual Prime95 stress test, alongside dual Folding @ Home instances of the console client. To spice this up and really test the board I ran RTHDRIBL alongside this. This is a real test of the boards stability at stock and will show how well it would run in a situation where the board was being stressed to the limit.

The board passed with flying colours..no BIOS update needed and indeed it has coped with absolutely everything I have thrown at it. There is a point when you have a "feeling" about a motherboard and I have to say that the Core2Duo platform has not inspired my confidence, but this board just feels like it will be solid no matter what you do with it. Not since the awesome DFI SLI-DR that I had have I had the pleasure of using such a nice board.

super pi

1 Million

Super PI is 100% the only choice for a quick bench of your top-end rig. It gives a quick and easy estimate of the relative speed of your CPU. The C2D's are now infamous for the their very fast PI times. The IP35 Pro goes up against our previous results here.

The IP35 Pro seems to be a little slow in the race to 1million places of PI.

32 Million

A longer run of the Super PI benchmark shows stability and speed in a quick convenient test.

Here the IP35 does pretty well lowering it's time in this longer benchmark.


Memory Bandwidth and Latency

Core architecture has made the Intel platform perform much better than previous generations. SiSoft was always a benchmark that AMD dominated until Core2Duo came out. The IP35 should do pretty well here as we have seen good results from other P35 based boards.

The P35 chipset of the Abit IP35 Pro is showing that it gets some good numbers for memory bandwidth.

sisoft memory latency

Surprisingly the Abit IP35 Pro lags a little behind in the memory latency terms, Abit usually do a good job here and this board is just a little behind the competition.

Top dollar...but is it a top board?

Great review Kemp, nice bunch of packaging akin to the rocketboy type of stuffz. I do wish the µguru thing was more of a 5.25 bay thingy tbh. Last time I checked, retailers were ramming these devices down peoples throats for like £11 or so - which amazes me why u never had one in the box ?!?

I would hope these good results will boost a tad more after some bios revisions, board to board I`d expect this one to be a bit better than shown - but meh..

Kewl, I recognize some of those photos too Quote

Excellent review as usual mate. The 680i's are toasty little sods for sure, and it's a pity that abit didn't even provide some form of active cooling to try and address the problem. Well done Quote
