The Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R motherboard ranks 5th fastest in this list of overclocked Intel motherboards with a Front Side Bus speed of 495MHz. Not bad for a mainstream motherboard, great job both to Intel and Gigabyte for building a solid overclocking platform.

Well rounded Motherboard!

As a mainstream motherboard the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R comes with a concise set of features; notably Gigabit networking, a half-dozen Serial ATA II channels with RAID and a SPDIF connector right by its PCI Express x16 videocard slot.

As we saw in the benchmarks, the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R performed very well. It wasn't the fastest board in every benchmark suite, but in the office application tests in particular it was right up there. The Intel P35 Express and ICH9R chipsets are well suited to everyday computing needs, and the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R is most certainly skewed towards the typical workstation or home PC. It will support a single videocard, but it doesn't have any flashy heatsinks, lights, or come a small mountain of accessories. For good Windows Vista compatibility, a DirectX10 videocard is recommended.

The GA-P35-DS3R is a motherboard for users on a budget, who need a computer built on this popular chipset and have reliability in mind. Paired with a 1333MHz FSB Intel Core 2 Duo processor, the P35 Express virtually guarantees a smooth sailing through Windows Vista, Microsoft Office, and standard productivity applications of that stream.

With a retail price of $145 CDN ($150 USD, £75 GBP), the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R is affordable but not dirt cheap. In PCSTATS overclocking tests we were able to push the GA-P35-DS3R to 495MHz with a Core 2 Duo E6750 processor. While the board has overclocking potential, it's real value is bringing the P35 Express chipset to the desktop with a good feature set for under $150. If you're looking to build a new Intel Core2 Duo or Core 2 Quad computer system for the office, it's a fiscally responsible option.
