Motherboard Highlights Gallery

The ECS P45T-A motherboard has two PCI Express x16 slots. One graphics card gets x16, while two videocards in Crossfire split that into x8/x8. Further expansion includes two PCI Express x1 slots, two 32 bit PCI slots, an IDE and FDD. Headers are located along the bottom of motherboard so they're out of the way, but no brackets are supplied.

Physical power/reset buttons, six SATA 2.0, one IDE, and three USB2.0 headers. The Intel ICH10R is cooled by a small passive heatsink.

The ECS P45T-A has four DDR2 memory slots, these accommodate 2GB memory modules for a max of 8GB RAM. Install pairs of memory in same the coloured slots for dual channel operation. A 24-pin main ATX power and 4-pin Auxiliary power cable supply power to the board.

Plenty of space around the Intel LGA775 Socket on the ECS P45T-A board. The passive aluminum Intel P45 Express chipset doesn't get very warm during operation. Power MOSFETs are not heatsinked.

The Intel ICH10R southbridge, in this case the board PCSTATS tested is pre-production.

Next PCSTATS will dive into BIOS and overclocking options, but first let's touch on the Intel P45 Express chipset and what it has to offer mainstream computer enthusiasts!
