Final Thoughts

All in all the GigaByte GA-6OXM7E (I'm really getting tired of typing in that code...) is a decent motherboard for the average user. It comes standard with onboard video, but gives you the option of upgrading to something like a GeForce if you want. It comes with onboard sound from Creative, and a slew of other i815E enabled features such as quad USB ports, FPD compatibility and the list goes on...

If you are a cost conscious consumer looking for a motherboard for general computing or SOHO situations this motherboard would be one worth considering. It will give you a taste of overclocking, without requiring you ever set foot in BIOS and get yourself all dirty. Also, the redundant BIOS is just a great feature for reliability's sake.

On the other hand if you are a hardcore overclocker things are much different. At first, the intentional space for a Golden Orb cooler looks very promising, but the forced overclocking through Windows, and the limit of 130FSB is nothing but, well, limiting. No decent FSB speeds, no control over Vcore, and overclocking in windows don't add up to a very overclocking friendly motherboard.

Overall this board is a good choice, so long as you are content to overclock by only minor amounts or not at all. The layout is clean, the board feature packed, and the dual BIOS offers a measure of reliability not very many other manufacturers offer.
