The performance among the other motherboards was high at the press time. The motherboard was rock stable throughout all the tests. If your memory and CPU lets you, the overclocking capability is high too.

You may like to use easy tune utility to fiddle with the settings. I had to download the new version to make it work but this time the version included in the CD worked fine.

Other than the standard test, I tested it with the on-board Video to compare the results with our standard platform GeForce Ti4200 128 MB VGA Card. I don't know why but Sysmark results with on-board video were higher. For gaming, of course on-board video did not perform well. So this means, the board is really good for casual and office use with on-board video. But for gaming you need more.
