To find out if the first P35 Express boards are up to the lofty standards set by their predecessors, we've rounded up five examples from Abit, Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI. Each board puts a unique spin on the P35, whether it's with support for DDR3 memory, elegant heatpipe cooling, extensive fan-control and hardware-monitoring options, integrated Wi-Fi, or flexible eSATA support. The question, of course, is whether any of them can put together the mix of performance, features, and affordability that made the best P965 boards such standouts.
Join us as we subject the Abit IP35 Pro, Asus P5K and P5K3 Deluxe, Gigabyte GA-P35-DQ6, and MSI P35 Platinum to a punishing gauntlet of tests in Windows Vista x64 to determine which boards measure up, which fall short, and whether one stands out as the pick of the litter.
