Gigabyte EP45-DS3P (P45) DDR2 Motherboard

File Compression & Encoding Results

 
ViMark is the latest addition to the OC3D motherboard testing process and a relatively new benchmarking application in general. Designed to take the inaccuracies and guesswork out of measuring the time taken to encode video files, ViMark produces easily comparable and consistent results for encoding raw video into Windows Media, Quicktime, AVI and Gif formats. As always, a total of 5 benchmark runs were performed with the highest and lowest scores removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 scores.
 
 
 
 
 
 
7-Zip is an open source Winzip-style file compression utility that has the ability to compress and decompress many file formats including its own .7z compression scheme. 7-Zip also comes complete with its own benchmarking utility for gauging the compression and decompression speed of the system that it is installed on.
 
 
 
 
Result Observations
Again we see the Gigabyte holding its own against the higher spec'd boards. Although this time the Gigabyte fails to keep pace with the Maximus II and the MSI board, it does snap at the heals of the P5Q Deluxe and actually equalled the Maximus II in the Quicktime test - not a bad result for a board costing half as much!

Can Gigabyte's entry level motherboard keep pace with the cream of P45 releases we have reviewed recently?

What BIOS was it flashed too? I have the same motherboard and with an E8500 at 4085MHz but I'm have some troubles. I keep getting BSOD and I looked up the BBCode and they are all memory related. I did some research and apparently the motherboard is picky with the RAM it is used with.

I flashed from the default BIOS to F7 and still getting the same problems
