Gigabyte’s M.I.T. menu is familiar, relying on various sub-menus to provide comprehensive configuration settings.
The first sub-menu provides reference clock and multiplier settings. The F2A85X pushes our A10-5800K CPU to 4.5 GHz at 1.45 V.
The M.I.T. Advance Memory Settings sub-menu provides redundant DRAM multiplier control, in addition to hosting another menu for memory timings. Gigabyte matches ASRock by providing Intel XMP settings on an AMD motherboard.
Setting DRAM Timing Selectable to “Quick” allows both channel timings to be set simultaneously. Expert mode allows per-channel timings, but we’ve never found these beneficial. Primary, secondary, and memory waveform controls are selectable.
Gigabyte appears to have accepted our feedback on its inflated menu count, combining a collection of Advanced Voltage Settings that had formerly been spread across three sub-menus. Our target 1.45 V CPU core at full load was achieved by selecting a 1.425 V baseline and “Extreme” Loadline Calibration. Any combination of higher baseline and lower loadline settings produced less accurate results under full load.

And I would penalize Asrock for the brown PCB. Its an otherwise nice looking board, but this is a trend I don't care for.Reply
Why, why do you keep posting Skyrim as being a DirectX11 title? It IS NOT. It's just DX9Reply

CrashmanWhy don't you point to where you see that?Sneaky, lol. Now he's going to be downvoted.Reply
SakkuraSneaky, lol. Now he's going to be downvoted.Not sneaky, I just see a lot of sniping in here. I checked the article and didn't find it, and I really need to find it before I can gripe at the person who made the final revisions to this article. His comment could be completely false for all I know...Reply
I fixed the typo earlier tonight guys, thanks.Reply
Sounds like someone is owed an apologyReply
buzznutAnd I would penalize Asrock for the brown PCB. Its an otherwise nice looking board, but this is a trend I don't care for.Penalizing a company over a PCB's color is asinine and petty. Even if you have a case with an acrylic window, do you stare into your PC all day and night? If so, that is trend I don't care for.Reply
There are much more important things to worry about, like quality, price, and features, to name a few...
cangeliniI fixed the typo earlier tonight guys, thanks."Adoby Creative Suite"Reply
who cares, good job to crash and the rest of the crew . . .
edit: i had to fix a typo . .oh karma!
looniam"Adoby Creative Suite"just one? who cares, good job to crash and the rest of the crew . . .edit: i had to fix a typo . .oh karma!Heh, apparently, editing motherboard round-ups in a Thanksgiving food coma is not conducive to catching typos. Got that one as well--thanks looniam! :)Reply
