GIGABYTE GA P31 DS3L DRIVER
Beginners Guides Cases and Access. It’s well featured, and very inexpensive. That should be enough to expansion to cover typical PC requirements. Windows Vista found all the motherboard’s components, so we didn’t even have to use the supplied driver disc. If you want to transfer video from a camcorder, or if you have an older iPod, you’ll have to purchase a PCI expansion card with FireWire ports on it. However, it does have the dynamic CPU fan control Smart Fan that Gigabyte boards use so effectively, and when this board is running, it keeps the CPU fan at a very low speed, which makes for a very quiet computing experience.

The simple truth is Intel’s P35 Express chipset rocks. The graphics card slot doesn’t impede the memory gigabyt levers, so you can install new memory modules without having to remove the graphics card first, plus the SATA ports are located just behind the PCI slots.
Gigabyte GA-P31-DS3L – motherboard – ATX – LGA775 Socket – P31
That should be enough to expansion to cover typical PC requirements. Well just your luck, Intel has released a stripped down iteration of the P35 called the P31 Express chipset.
If that describes you, a motherboard built on the Intel P31 Express can save a bundle. Budget motherboards don’t usually get this kind of treatment. Gigabyte passively cools the Intel P31 Express and ICH7 chipsets, note both get fairly warm so maintain good airflow in your computer case to avoid problems down the road.
With modern cases supporting USB and audio output on the front panel, it would have been nice if Gigabyte had colour coordinated or labeled pin polarity too. Mainstream users really can’t hope for much more, but if you’re looking to build a low cost entry level computer I’ll bet you want something a little cheaper than P35 can afford. The board performed well in our tests. This is a particularly good score, which keeps up well against Pbased boards using the same configuration.
It’s a mainstream motherboard that’s based on Intel’s P31 chipset, which isn’t as extravagant as the P35 chipset. Using the X38 chipset and an identical configuration, it’s only three points lower than what a top of the range board can achieve. If you’d like to learn about the benefits of Gigabyte’s Ultra Durable 2 solid capacitors, have a read here.
Those of you looking to get more out of your CPU can tinker with the BIOS’s front side bus speed, which can be adjusted in 1MHz increments, and the memory speed can also be set to run at various ratios of the front side bus speed so the memory doesn’t need to run at MHz.
Integrated items include Gigabit networking, 7.
It indicates that all over the motherboard box, in the manual and on the motherboard PCB as well. It’s well featured, and very inexpensive.
Membership is free, and your security and privacy remain protected. In the box it’s nothing the bare basics. However, it does have the dynamic CPU fan control Smart Fan that Gigabyte boards use so effectively, and when this board is running, it keeps the CPU fan at a very low speed, which makes for a very quiet computing experience.
Now I’m sure glgabyte wondering why there is a price difference between the P35 and P31 Express chipsets. The biggest difference between P35 and P31 chipsets really has nothing to do with the Northbridge actually, it’s what Southbridge is bundled.
GA-PDS3L (rev. 1.x) | เมนบอร์ด – GIGABYTE Thailand
I had a quick look around CanadaComputers. Physically, fs3l board is of the ATX form factor, but it’s not as wide as a full-size ATX motherboard, which means that it should fit easily into a smaller-than-usual case. Beginners Guides Cases and Access. In terms of difficulty, if the GA-PDS3L is the first motherboard you’ve worked on, don’t put that user’s manual away just yet.
If Gigabyte is extending solid capacitors to all motherboard segments that is especially good news for consumers. If you’re on a budget, this can help you build a very lean computer. I need power and lots of it. Sign in with LinkedIn Sign in with Facebook.
