Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R Motherboard Highlights

The three black PCI Express x1 slots on the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R are for high bandwidth devices, one PCI Express x16 for a videocard. Three PCI slots are available for legacy cards. The Clear CMOS jumper header is to the left of the CMOS battery. Note the red SPDIF header right next to the videocard slot - if you're videocard has an audio pickup for HDMI audio integration, that is the header to connect it to.

Space is tight around the videocard PCI Express x16 slot if the graphics card has a large heatsink. It won't obstruct the PCI slots, but may block off one or two of the PCI Express x1 slots.

In this corner of the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R we find eight Serial ATA II slots (six orange slots from Intel ICH9R Southbridge, two purple from the Gigabyte Serial ATA II controller). Various RAID Modes are supported between them. Along the lower left edge are four USB headers (in yellow). There is only one IDE connector.

The Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R has four DDR2 memory slots, up to 8GB of DDR2 1066/800/667 MHz memory can be installed. Memory is run in a dual channel configuration. The main ATX, floppy and auxiliary power connectors are located right here.

The Intel P35 Express and ICH9R Southbridge generate quite a bit of heat. A large passive (ie. silent) heatsink is used on the former.

There is a good amount of space around the LGA775 processor socket for big Intel heatsinks.
