Moving along to the 4 DDR slots. The board has everything an enthusiast might need, but doesn’t include more frivolous extras that the vast majority of users may never actually use. I’ve played with memory settings for weeks, timings and voltages as well, reinstalled XPPro several times, updated BIOS, got all newest drivers and run out of ideas Can you guess the difference from the name?.
The board’s main power plug is a little farther down the board than I’d like to see, but at least the auxiliary plug is near the top edge and away from the socket.

We’d love some thermal imaging shots that highlighted whether the OTES system was successful in its job or not, but we can confirm that a steady flow of warm air was exiting out of the back of the PC.

I’m thinking about getting a board instead. Over the past few months it worsened. Adding a PCI-based Gigabit controller would have really swamped the bus.
Keeping power cords away from the IC7-G’s relatively bare socket area leaves plenty of room for larger passive heat sinks. Customize The Tech Report It seems like a good idea on principle, and the plastic surround has the requisite screws to secure it in to a case.

Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing That’s the OTES cooling system that’s new on this model, folks. The fan is what makes the OTES system tick, and it’s not particularly annoying, either.
