So if you are pushing your hardware to the extreme and experiment with risky settings, you now have a an easy and convenient way to go back to save grounds. Abit is a day late with their announcement, but the company also has an X38 board ready to go and it’s the IX38 QuadGT. There’s also a third x16 slot which has x4 bandwidth, a x1 slot and two PCI slots. Hardware Monitoring Monitor temperatures, voltages and fan settings in real time and with zero CPU usage. We couldn’t get its Windows-based uGuru overclocking utility to run properly on our Vista-based system — it kept re-starting our machine.

Digital PWMs offer most precise and consistent voltage supply for reduced power consumption, less heat and increased components’ life.
Their placement is generally excellent, apart from the Firewire pin-out which is in the middle of the expansion ports. Etherent PWMs are preferred by some designers because they take up a smaller physical footprint on the board and it is also easier for the manufacturer to provide a far greater precision for voltage adjustments.
Abit has managed to implement a few interesting features into this board and some rather odd ones too. As usual, digital audio is available, via optical and coaxial connections, as well as analogue audio, and it’s by way of the Realtek HD Audio codec. Abit’s IX38 QuadGT wears the GT moniker with some justification; it was fast ait most of our tests and has plenty of features that will tickle many an enthusiasts fancy.
However, through the BIOS you can manipulate the etherneet side bus speed and memory speed ratio to make it go faster.
ABIT launches IX38 QuadGT
In addition this special design utilizes the airflow of the CPU cooler to blow heat out of your etherndt through the back panel. Sign in with LinkedIn Sign in with Facebook.
How about a “Grand Touring” version of a motherboard, anyone? Convenient and easy-to-use fine tuning from within a self-explanatory BIOS menu. Abit is a day late with their announcement, but the company also has an X38 board ready to go and it’s the IX38 QuadGT.
Would you buy this? While the power and reset abjt are located near the pins for the front panel connections, the “clear CMOS” button is on the rear port cluster, so there’s no need to fiddle with jumpers inside the PC case any time a BIOS setting doesn’t go to plan.
The north bridge, memory and PCI-Express quqdgt get the normal, single phase of power regulation, but the CPU gets a five phase digital PWM system using the latest smaller and cooler components. If Abit holds true to what they showed at Computex earlier this year, then we can expect to see a DDR3 X38 board at a later stage. Written by Richard Swinburne.

These advanced capacitors consist of conductive polymer and therefore offer a vast range of advantages such as higher temperature tolerance, higher ripple current and improved frequency characteristics over conventional electrolytic capacitors.
Extendor Silent Dual Pipe Cooling.
Its encoding time in iTunes improved to 48sec. Dedicated fan control Keep control over your hardware.

We couldn’t get its Windows-based uGuru overclocking utility to run properly on our Vista-based system — it kept re-starting our machine. All up though, it’s well built, has good features and runs quietly. Sign up to gain exclusive access to email subscriptions, event invitations, competitions, giveaways, and much more. Digital Home Digital Speakers. This is very much a board for enthusiasts.

Overclockers at Abit’s stand here at Computex have managed to get quad core Core 2 processor to a massive 4. Next Generation Digital PWMs provide highest accuracy for the best computing experience ever, noise interferences are avoided and energy efficiency is highly increased by realizing ideal resistance ratings low RDS during charge-discharge power switching.
The pin-outs are colour coordinated though, but they don’t detract from the overall look and add a necessary differentiation to allow users to tell what they all are. So if you are pushing your hardware to the extreme and experiment with risky settings, you now have a an easy and convenient way to go back to save grounds.
