Gigabyte GA-8IP PRO – motherboard – ATX – LGA Socket – iP Overview – CNET
Also included is a multi-language illustrated hardware installation guide which essentially explains how to build a computer from start to finish.
The ICH-7R Southbridge chip also features a small passive heatsink and this got quite toasty during testing.
Like clockwork, Intel can be relied upon to keep churning out chipsets, as well as reasons to want to use them. We used pin ATX powersupply for all testing. It’s always good to see a motherboard that includes just about everything a 8i945; would need from the get-go.
We used the fan for all testing. The cooling solution is also Active for 8i9945p Northbridge and passive for the South. This means that SLI is not officially supported; however, Crossfire is a possibility if Intel goes for Crossfire certification on the platform.

Now we come to the flagship of the Gigabyte IP pdo. This is the first time we’ve had a chance to look at an Intel dual-core processor and supporting motherboard in action, so we’re quite excited about the whole thing. The included single-language manual is well written and covers all the basics, going more in-depth with BIOS settings than we are used to seeing.
The main difference is the slot layout. Beginners 8i945 Cases and Access. The main reason behind the use of the second PCI-E slot is for people wanting to run Dual Graphics cards on their motherboard for adding up to four monitors. The necessary drivers are included on CD, as is a program to create a driver floppy disk, but this is not explained in the documentation well.
We had to run the application directly first.

The Larger chip provides the Firewire-A backward support with the smaller chip adding the Firewire-B support. You will see that this motherboard has two PCI Express x16 slots. A single PCI 8i45p x16 slot provides the graphical interface. Subscribe to our Newsletter. We’ve seen a few other motherboard manufacturers slip up like this recently too, so we hope it does not become a trend.
Gigabyte loses the user-friendliness marks they gained in the last paragraph. You can find products similar to this one for sale below.

By default, the Intel P Northbridge chip is passively cooled, but Gigabyte has included a small 40mm fan that clips to the top of the heatsink. A new computer user trying to install Windows XP on this motherboard would be lost at this point. Proo absolutely no reason not to use this, as installing it takes only a few seconds, even for a novice.
