This makes it possible to perform a single boot-up, from a CD-drive for example, without the inconvenience of having to make changes in BIOS Setup. It decomposes regular stereo signal into channels to create a 3-D sound effect when a multi-channel system is connected via analog connection. The motherboard allows accessing a boot-up device selection menu by pressing a specified key during POST procedure. The way they heat up brings back the unpleasant memories of system boards based on G, although G33 produces much less heat. Of course, you are not going to see two full-size graphics slots on a microATX board. One of the main design disadvantages is the fact that memory modules are blocked in their slots by the video card. The first part becomes obvious when one looks at the list of the board’s additional controllers and peripheral ports.

Auto or can set multiplier relative to FSB frequency: No explicit parameter values can be set, so the control is truly automatic: Integrated controllers Audio controller is based on channel 7.

The 6 channel impulse CPU supply voltage stabilizer uses 2 field transistors per channel, 4 capacitors of microfarad and 16 V each as well as 9 capacitors of microfarad and 2. By all means, since vigabyte release of i an important issue for any system board is the IDE controller being used because the chipset no longer includes one.
In addition to the Gigabyts capabilities mentioned above except adjusting PCI Express bus frequency, for some reason it also allows to flexibly regulate memory voltage up to 2. Nevertheless, the use of PCIEx4 slot the maximum possible option that utilizes all free PCI Express chipset lines along with an extra slot on the side, which in theory allows installing a PCIEx16 form-factor card in it, speaks for itself.
Also, the particular placement of IDE socket makes it difficult to connect a cable to it. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: As a result we can cheer Gigabyte G33M-DS2R being in the lead of the already tested system boards based on Intel 3x, but we can’t help pointing out that such leadership is a mere g33/h31.
It that case the system board really turns out to be interesting, because in gigabyhe to its full-sized competitors it lacks only the two expansion slots. On the positive side, the board offers a quality set of electronic components and even an ability to install two video cards. At the same time, relatively small heat sinks are not likely to cause any trouble during installation of large components.

The way they heat up brings back the unpleasant memories of system boards based on G, although G33 produces much less heat.
Perhaps, the users of old interface devices will find this solution appealing. Considering the current level of controller integration it will hardly be a problem for many users. CPU fan connector provides automatic rotation frequency control functionality. It’s a pity the integrated graphics adapter has turned out to be essentially useless, while the chipset could have had a better cooling system.
Finally, there is Performance Enhance option Standard, Turbo, Extremewhich, perhaps, operates with additional memory timings and is really effective when turned on details will be discussed below in testing results section.
Nevertheless, it is pleasing to note once more how enabling integrated graphics has nearly no effect on system performance. EasyTune 5 – a program for fine-tuning the system settings and system monitoring. The lack of digital video-out sockets there is only one, and an it is an analog D-Sub at that and digital audio-in and -out sockets, which are in high demand for household media centers, weakens the position of Gigabyte G33M-DS2R in comparison to its competitors from the user’s point of view.
Giggabyte, there is no free space on the board’s surface, which diminishes convenience of assembling and upgrading the system.

On the bright side: Non-standard settings were not tested for operability. The set of brand utilities includes the following useful programs: In general the system board is good. G3/3g31 discussion of the reasons why g33/f31 latter model loses in game tests is beyond the scope of this article and is a good subject for a separate one.
It required no updating of special managers in order to work with disk images and no updating of Windows XP drivers. Two rather small aluminum heat sinks are responsible for cooling the chipset.
Very good – the quality of the analog audio output according to our test results is very high even for an HDA codec. We were never able to start the system in this way with a memory multiplier that wasn’t allowed for the given FSB frequency by the latest version of BIOS.
It is mounted using 8 screws with all corners firmly secured. One of the main design disadvantages is the fact that memory modules are blocked in their slots by the video card.
Overclocking fans might find this setting useful.
