Results Analysis

Once again there was very little difference between the motherboards performance, however the Asus did appear to have ever so slightly better read speeds overall. This is not really surprising as both motherboards use the ICH10R controller.

Let's see how the perform with our multimedia benchmark suite...

Very good review, was a good read

1.44V for 3.85gHz Now I'm even more proud of my UD5 doing [email protected] Did you adjust the VTT voltage too? It's just as important as vCore.Quote

Great review. Think they're still crazy priced tho.

Hopefully they see some sense l8r in the 09.

Quality review as always Rich. Bit miffed at lack of SLI seeing as it's such a massive selling point. Puts it at an instant disadvantage. Ah well.Quote

Couple of features I picked up on which I thought were great; the first being the right angled sata plugs.. Such a simple thing! But would make tidy cabling easy - it's just impossible to make the sata cableslook neat if they are sicking up out of the mobo.The other was the bios save feature, thats pretty cool! And a great feature, being able to swop from "warp speed overclock" to "mr easy going day to day" at the press of a button.. 10/10 for that one.

£240 though? Too much I think.. Needs to come with the kitchen sink at that price, and it doesnt.

A fine review.Quote

I got 4.2ghz on the UD5 I'm currently testing. The MSI was a different beast all together .

Yeah, me too. The boards have to go to Nvidia for 'approval' after which SLI can be endorsed. I believe Nvidia are charging a fortune for this endorsement.

Yup, I agree totally m8. It wouldn't be so much of an issue if the board were priced much lower to compensate but at present it is not.
