Best price I have seen for a stylish new x48 motherboard. Please only vote cold if you can finds this x48 motherboard cheaper, and no how good it actually is..

Desktop PC platforms based on the Intel® X48 Express Chipset, combined with either the Intel® Core?2 Duo, Intel® Core?2 Quad or Intel® Core?2 Extreme processors establish a new standard for performance. Designed to push the limits, the Intel® X48 Express Chipset supports the new Intel® QX9770 Core?2 Extreme processor with 1600 FSB, dual-channel XMP 1333 MHz DDR2 memory, next generation dual X16 PCI Express 2.0 and Intel® Extreme Tuning to extract the maximum platform performance.

With the growing imbalance between CPU and memory performance, it is critical to optimize the memory controller design to obtain the maximum possible performance from the memory subsystem. The redesigned Intel X48 Express Chipset Memory Controller Hub (MCH) architecture significantly increases overall system performance through the optimization of available bandwidth with the new 1600 MHz system bus and reduction of memory access latency with Intel® Fast Memory Access. These technology breakthroughs result in optimized system architecture with built-in intelligence, greatly improving system memory performance. The updated MCH also includes support for Intel 45nm next-generation Intel Core 2 processor family and wider internal data buses that support dual-channel DDR2 memory technology at 1333 MHz.

Features
- Socket 775, Intel Core2 Quad/Duo, 1333MHz FSB
- CrossFire Technology
- PCI Express x16 (Gen2)
- Dual-Channel DDR2 1066
- CMOS Reloaded
- 8 SATA 3Gb/s with RAID
- Gigabit LAN
- 6-Phase Digital PWM
- Realtek ALC885 for 8CH HD Audio in Bernstein card

Voted Hot. Great price for this board.

Novatech are amazing!!! It is not likely to get a bad mobo, Novatech's customer support is second to none, check there forum out..

Good price if you want/need a socket 775 board.. but remember it's essentially a dead socket now.
#7
Bargain m8 voted hot.

Its a dead socket unless your normal.

Its a dead socket unless your normal.


Meaning..
#9
that unless you feel the need to upgrade your pc every fortnight, it's not a dead socket.
#10
The sort of person that buys an X48 i would expect knows that there are

a) cheaper boards out there to do the same job for 90% of people

b) AMD alternatives that are both cheaper than 775 and i7, and out perform 775.

Each to their own, but I would only buy this if you need a 775 board (upgrading or replacing a dead board etc..)

what are the amd alternatives ? I am asking as a beginner about to build my first system:thumbsup:

I would have voted hot until I saw

"Please only vote cold if you can finds this x48 motherboard cheaper, and no how good it actually is.."

FFS, - I'm quite capable of deciding how hot a deal is without the OP trying to influence how hot his deal gets, - I'm quite aware how voting works on this site and don't need someone telling me how I should vote.

Any phenom II chip will give most if not all 775 chips a good hiding.. especially the newer AM3 based variants. All AM2+ motherboards will take AM3 chips, meaning that you can pay as little as £45 for an 760G chipset board or 780G board with full feature set (£60).

Even the most desierable AM3 boards can be had for as little as £100 now and given the performance advantage as well as a far more superior upgrade path, that is why I advise caution buying a 775 board now :)

Not sure I'm allow to say it.. but if you head over to Hexus.net forums there are plenty of us to help you find exactly what you want for any budget.

Well to be fair many members DO NOT know how to vote and would vote this cold simply because you can pick up budget alternatives for ~£40

As the other poster said not every one feels the need to upgrade their pc everytime intel or amd farts , didnt mean no offence but not everyone buys budget boards for budget systems or highend boards for highend systems , there can be a world of difference in just upgradeing the motherboard, and in truth no OS as far as im aware takes anywere near full advantage of a quad or triple core cpus.
#17
Good price for a top of the line board, but I agree there are better options for a new system.

It’s a good price for an Intel CrossFire board so it’s best to compare pricing with AMD Crossfire boards; any ideas on how much they cost for a better comparison?

Intel’s top end Quad cores still comfortably beat AMD in the power consumption stakes which is important for some. e.g. for silent systems it can make quiet a difference.

It’s great to see AMD back in the game but LGA775 is still a reasonable platform if the price is right.

x48 are much more stable than AMD version, and at this price, believe me you will not find better new, you can trust me on that one..

How does this compare to a asus crosshair?

which amd outperforms even a core 2 duo e6600 ?

edit oops you answered already

Where is the proof though. I stopped using AMD chips after building 13 computers using them from t-birds to am2 6000 as in for my use not for customers as they just were not offering any more BANG.. got my e6600 and it flew and really impressed me - I then replaced it with q6600 months later e6600 is doing nothing in box.

Custom PC magazine - April 09 page 11 regarding Phenom IIs in Socket AM3

'Ultimately though, the CPUs we tested can't beat Intel's competing Core 2 chips in the same price range, and there's no way they could even think about competing with Core i7'

I just recently bought a gigabyte ga-ep45-ud3r which is a superb board especially for overclocking but the price I paid was £94 from ebuyer and no crossfire even though am not going to do it. The only reason why I acutally bought it was cause I previously had a xfx 680i lt which completely sucked and for once I wanted a high quality, not to mention super overclocker board.
