The motherboard or mainboard is the component that connects all the different parts of your computer. Often it has some integrated components like a sound card, enabling your computer to play sound, or a network card, to connect your computer to the network. The standard form factor (size) for motherboards is ATX, you need at least a midi-tower to fit one of those in. Micro-ATX motherboards are often more complete and have more onboard devices, like a video board and fit in smaller cases, but are generally less expandable.

Native support for DDR2 888
GIGABYTE engineers’ passion of diving deep into new technologies, and have successfully break the barrier of DDR2 frequency and reached DDR2 888. With higher memory frequency means larger memory bandwidth for executing intensive applications in greater performance.

Intelligent Data Protection
Highly advanced Intel® Matrix Storage technology allows RAID 0 (Striping), RAID 1 (Mirroring), RAID 0+1 (Striping and Mirroring), and RAID 5 (Parity RAID) multi-disk designs to be created by the user depending on their preference for protection or performance.

Step on to high speed connectivity
The high-speed Gigabit Ethernet for LAN connection speed of up to 1,000 Mb/s, allows internet activities such as online gaming or watching streaming videos without delays. As well the onboard Firewire (IEEE1394b) delivers high-speed data thru-put of up to 800Mb/s, enhances PC connectivity for consumer electronics A/V appliances, storage peripherals and portable devices.

CPU Intelligent Accelerator 2
With GIGABTYE C.I.A 2 technology, users are able to enjoy the benefits of overclocking without having too much trouble of manually adjustment. C.I.A. 2 provides reasonable and acceptable overclocking options for user to select, all what user need to do is to select the desirable overclocking level and the rest environment settings are automatically setup by the BIOS.

Memory Intelligent Booster 2
Designed to maximize memory performance and boost memory bandwidth by optimizing data transmission among CPU, north bridge chipset and memory. The innovative GIGABYTE M.I.B. 2 technology shortens memory latency time and enhances system performance without sacrificing stability.

Intel® High Definition Audio
Intel® High Definition Audio enables premium digital sound in the PC for an immersive surround sound experience. In addition, Intel® HD Audio delivers multiple audio channels in your PC so you can listen to two different streams simultaneously in two separate rooms.

GigaRAID IDE RAID Controller
Supporting RAID (0, 1, 0+1), JBOD function and ATA133 interface, GigaRAID Controller delivers completely solution for storage interface to increase fault tolerance, improve data access performance and provides additional interface for more IDE devices.
