XFX nForce 630i Socket 775 mATX Motherboard

Drive I/O Performance

HD Tach
 
HDTach is a free hard disk benchmarking program from SimpliSoftware. This benchmark is not only capable of producing results on hard disk access times but also CPU usage required during disk access. The "Long bench" was run a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.

Result Observations
 
The XFX nForce 630i performed almost as well as our ASUS board during our I/O testing of the hard disk sub-system. Both HDTach and SiSoft Sandra reported comparable results, but the 630i experienced slightly higher CPU Utilization and higher Disk Read Access speed.

"During the overclocking phase of this review it is interesting to note that the chipset heatsink was frightfully hot to the touch, and more than likely detrimental to the overall performance of the motherboard. "

when nVidia went from having separate nb & sb on 6xxx IGP to an all in one on 7xxx I'm sure that it became cheaper for them to produce (& hence probably more profitable for them) but it definitely resulted in increased chipset temps.

I've got abit's I-N73HD based on the same chipset here to play with once I acquire a spare CPU.
