ABIT AB9 Pro Intel P965 Express Motherboard Review

ABIT AB9 Pro Intel P965 Express Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Since we're dealing with the Intel ICH8R southbridge, SATA RAID 0/1/5/10/JBOD is standard. Of course there's more to the AB9 Pro than just Serial ATA, this Socket 775 Intel P965 Express based motherboard has a lot going for it.

More Motherboard Highlights


It's recommended that an ATX 2.0 spec power supply (24 pin) be installed on the ABIT AB9 Pro motherboard. Note the AB9 Pro only needs an ATX12V connector, so you don't need to splurge on a new power supply as well. The four DDR2 memory slots can be installed with up to 8GB of memory. Install the memory in the same colour slot to enable dual channel mode. The Intel socket 775 processor is accompanied by a 4-pin PWM compliant CPU fan header, which is 3-pin backwards compatible.


ABIT's Silent OTES uses copper heatpipes to conduct the heat from the Intel P965 Express Northbridge chipset to the larger MOSFET heatsinks in the far corner. The system is totally silent.


Space around the CPU socket is a bit tight, though not out of Intel specs. If you opt for a passive watercooling system, you'll want to blow air in the direction of the CPU socket to cool the MOSFET heatsinks and Intel P965 Express Northbridge heatsink.
