In fact, I prefer Albatron’s retention mechanism, which easily slides back and forth along the AGP slot, to the standard AGP card retention hooks that I never seem to have nails long enough to flip back easily. Vladimir Rybnikov puree ixbt. Personally, I prefer a more understated aesthetic or at least one that picks only a couple of colors to run with, but the PXPE Pro II shouldn’t look too bad through a case window.

Since dual-channel configurations require paired DIMMS for optimal performance, four DIMM slots should really be a minimum requirement for anyone looking for a dual-channel board that easily supports memory expansion. Yes, the dazzling array of PCI expansion headers does give users access to just about every peripheral device that the board offers, but the headers can potentially block access to the board’s PCI slots depending on the system’s enclosure. Firewire has an expansion header all to itself, too.

The 3-phase switching voltage regulator incorporates 7 capacitors pdo uF and 3 of uF. The only downside to Springdale is that the i no longer carries on support for older ‘Williamette’ based Pentium 4 processors, or even socket Celeron CPUs for that matter. Among other downsides are crowded connectors around the memory slots, and locking of them when a video card is inserted.

Albatron PX865PE PRO II – motherboard – ATX – Socket 478 – i865PE

Video 3Digests Video cards: Po most visible aspect is the copper northbridge heatsink which cools the i chip. The PCB design of this model differs from the top model in the line – PXPE Pro II though boards based on the same chipset and coming from the same company usually differ only in the number of additional chips. About us Privacy policy Mailing list Mobile.


Its functions are indicated on the PCB. There is no wasted space for components that didn’t get included in the final design – the same PCB is used for the PXPE model which doesn’t have a network controller unsoldered.

However, the fact of an individual layout is not directly connected with the board’s quality. In fact, I prefer Albatron’s retention mechanism, which easily slides back and forth along the AGP slot, to the standard AGP card retention hooks that I never seem to have nails long enough to flip back easily.

Customize The Tech Report Six analog audio input and output ports make an appearance covering the board’s 7. At the same time, there is also a version with higher functionality and respective components, as well as etyernet unsophisticated PXPE.

It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Beginners Guides Cases and Access. The board is well labelled from the dip switches to the the front panel headers. With the release of mainstream i chipsets today there will be soon an influx of new Pentium 4 motherboards on the market from which to choose.

This also free’s up the PCI bus for the other system devices. A legacy game port and extra serial port get their own expansion header as do four of the board’s USB 2.


This system potentially allows for better system performance when all the devices in the system-bus are under load. Steam names the best-selling games of The four-pin plug is particularly cumbersome and requires that the power cord be routed around the processor heat sink. Motherboards Previous page Next page. Stock performance was good, and the board was loaded to the gills with features. There are some downside in the PCB design, and one of them is that the FDD connector is put on the left edge it can be a problem if you still need this unit.

For the newbie overclockers out there, Albatron include a small section explaining overclocking that’s quite detailed, yet easy enough for even a novice users to understand.

Albatron would be well-advised to include a alatron more of these expansion ports in the board’s port cluster and possibly move a few of them up to a 5. Normally, I’m all for expansion ports, but this is beyond excessive.
