In general the system board is good.
Two rather small aluminum heat sinks are responsible for cooling the chipset. This particular model has no digital video- and audio-out sockets and clearly requires an installation of extra expansion cards and brackets. It is curious though, how the usually scrupulous Gigabyte user’s guide has no mention of this JMicron’s controller and the block diagram shows IDE interface to be provided by the chipset.
Despite the much earlier release and the higher model number of the integrated video accelerator GMA used in G33 has a much simpler architecture than X Even in the first generation of Ultra Durable board series quality polymer capacitors with low ESR value equivalent series resistance were used not only in the CPU supply circuit, but all across the board.
Frequency response 40 Hz to 15 KHzdB: This makes it possible to perform a single boot-up, from a CD-drive for example, without the inconvenience of having to make changes in BIOS Setup. Perhaps, the users of old interface devices will find this solution appealing.
The reviewed model on the manufacturer’s website The motherboard was provided by the manufacturer. In fact, it provides all of the modern functionalities though not an abundance thereof. CPU fan connector provides automatic rotation frequency control functionality. Intel Core 2 Duo E 2. As a result we can cheer Gigabyte G33M-DS2R being in the lead of the already tested system boards based on Intel 3x, but we can’t help pointing out that such leadership is a mere formality.

We were never able to start the system in this way with a memory multiplier that wasn’t allowed for the given FSB frequency by the latest version of BIOS. The memory modules were provided by Corsair. A discussion of the reasons why the latter model loses in game tests is beyond the scope of this article and is a good yigabyte for a separate one.
Of course, you are not going to see two full-size graphics slots on a microATX board. Finally, there is Performance Gigabytte option Standard, Turbo, Extremewhich, perhaps, operates with additional memory timings and is really effective when turned on details will be discussed below in testing results section. Overclocking fans might find this setting useful.
However, in order for the new memory multiplier to come into effect one has g33/3g1 reboot the system. Sergey Pikalov peek ixbt.
Thus, the benefit from using EasyTune reduces to being able to monitor the temperatures, voltages etc. However, the board exhibited no failures and no overheating symptoms while gihabyte in this mode.
Brand technologies and features Xpress Recovery 2 – restoring a previously saved image of a hard disk partition using an integrated BIOS utility. It that case the system board really turns out to be interesting, because in comparison to its full-sized competitors it lacks only the two expansion gigahyte.

The 6 channel impulse CPU supply voltage stabilizer uses 2 field g3/g31 per channel, 4 capacitors of microfarad and 16 V each as well as 9 capacitors of microfarad and 2. Very good – the gigabyhe of the analog audio output according to our test results is very high even for an HDA codec. Besides, it is unlikely that anyone would want to set up CrossFire specifically on Gigabyte G33M-DS2R when plenty of more convenient options are available on the market. Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method.
It’s a pity the integrated graphics adapter has turned out to be essentially useless, while the chipset could have had a better cooling system. Non-standard settings were not gigabytd for operability. Also BIOS Setup implements an ability, which is now becoming popular, to save the current set of all parameter values and quickly load it later useful for experiments with overclocking. The lack of digital video-out sockets there is only one, and an it is an analog D-Sub at that and digital audio-in and -out sockets, which are in high demand for household media centers, weakens the position of Gigabyte G33M-DS2R in comparison gigabyts its competitors from the user’s point of view.
