    Anyone know where to find this mATX mobo? I noticed Gigabyte officially posted it on their website today. I dont know if its out yet or not but I'm looking around the net. Supposedly it uses the new P35 chipset like its bigger ATX brothers that just launched.

    I'm seeing a G33 used on this mobo on the Gigabyte site.

    Oh HELL yes! :D Look at all those solid caps. This one looks serious, boys. :)

    If he has the PCI-E @ 100MHz and is doing 450MHz, it must have a lock!

    pvhk, get back here with some results, please.

    The only negative part so far is no 1:1 memory divider.

    But here we have 433 MHz FSB

    Yeah the 1:1 divider is the only negative I have heard about so far. I'm no expert on this but I assume a BIOS update can fix it, yes?

    Shiiit, I just plunged and got the Abit board. Well I hope it runs without a hitch.

    I've had years of great stability out of my AMD 939 Gigabyte board. If this holds up well I might return the Abit. ^__^

    i believe this is just a placer picture, as you can see that the PCIe slot is only 1x not 4x, and does not have an open back as the real board \does.

    Argh! Pvhk if there is one thing I can’t stand, it’s when people draw out a review. Get to the overclocking part! ;)

    Well I suppose it doesn’t matter, since most of us can’t buy it yet…

    I can't for this to be available, I think this is going to be my upgrade from my slowly aging T-force6100-939 mATX board.

    I'm guessing it will. Looking at it I figure it'll fit a CNPS 9500 I got planned too. :D

    Nice thing about Pvhk is that he does a good review and always provides lots of pics. Nice to see that this comes packaged too. The ABIT comes without anything. Just thrown into the box from what I hear.

    Oh great motherboard gods above please let this one be a good overclocker and stable! If you do I'll promise to buy one! :D

    That's about $143 USD.

    I wonder if we can run crossfire or SLI on these chipsets?

    Isn't the G33 based on the P35 chipset?

    yes it is!

    the question is, is it an f-i90hd killer?
    My rig: e6600 + crucial value pc5300 (D9GMH chips) + nvidia TNT PCI +psu asus 350w:

    assuming that this Gigabyte does not have a tendency to die like the POS Abit and overclocks well, then yes it is the new king. Try 400+ fsb. I know that this board can do more

    Awesome, simply awesome. If I wasn't so flat broke, I'd pay the high cost of freight and order one from avitos.com. I've done crazier things in the past. :cool:
