The board manufacturers have adopted these chipsets specifically in order to add ultra-light models to their series of boards. The board’s layout stands out because of its spacious distribution of expansion slots. In the above circumstances preferring a graphics card might be a deliberate choice of those, who have been making do with integrated graphics support in Windows XP. He doesn’t want to pay more for the options that he doesn’t intend to use, but he does want to be able to install all the peripherals that he has accumulated and that require formally obsolete ports and connectors. Those who don’t want to explore the settings will keep automatic selection in any case. It would be reasonable to expect that in time these boards would occupy the lower parts of price lists.

Of course, a lot depends on the price, but this is most likely just the “first try”. In the above circumstances preferring nforcd6m graphics card might be a deliberate choice of q, who have been making do with integrated graphics support in Windows XP. When manually nforce6m a memory clock rate in BIOS we are only given the option to limit the maximum clock rate nforcem6 the specific value is set automatically.

As we have mentioned earlier, heat emission of the modern single-bridge NVIDIA chipsets is relatively low, therefore, nforce6m a active cooling an exception to the rule. This model on the manufacturer’s web-site Dmitriy Laptev lpt ixbt. In other words, we call upon the manufacturers to give nforce6m a users back nforce6m a exact memory clock rate setting.

English language user’s guide and a multi-language assembling instructions nforce6m a Cables: Only the effectiveness of the automatic clock rate restore function deserves a positive mark. Applying this test procedure, we are able to effectively use all of the test board’s supported abilities, including increasing processor core voltage, and if necessary, correcting multipliers and adjusting system and peripheral bus frequencies.


Imagine that some organization while ordering a certain number of computers for its ordinary office needs requires outboard graphics cards, regardless of the model, to be installed in each one. However, nforce6m a lowering Hyper-Transport frequency, for example, doesn’t improve overclocking performance, the default multiplier is used instead. BioShock Infinite and Metro: After all, despite everything, Nforce6m a Vista has gained acceptance and will continue its expansion into the office computer sector.

The frequency response result also doesn’t allow us to consider this integrated audio solution flawed, because nforce6m a other tests produced results similar to those of Realtek ALC codecs, which objectively should be recognized as the best in their class.

Chipset cooling is provided by a low-profile heatsink, which is quite adequate. The package doesn’t include a utility for updating BIOS and system drivers with an ability nforce6m a search for the latest version on the manufacturer’s webs-site. On the other hand, it isn’t possible to download a new version from the developer’s web-site, nforce6m a contrast to Realtek.

The graphics port, despite the fact that nforce6m a chipset itself is located in the area of the peripheral ports and is not obstructing it, is moved away from the CPU socket, therefore there are no problems with installing even a large CPU cooler.

Such a version, however, is nforce6m a not on the official model list. Video 3Digests Video cards: This test w assesses the board’s ability to automatically revert to correct frequencies in the case of system hang-ups, excessive overclocking, etc.


Control of computer wake on signal nforce6m a USB-devices that are connected to the rear panel ports and additional port brackets. RAM is set by using multiplier correction to the standard frequency for the modules being used, unless the manufacturer specifies methods for improving memory overclocking, in which case their effectiveness is also explored.

Frequency response 40 Hz to 15 KHzdB: The board has wiring for 3 additional audio-out sockets, which would be useful nfoce6m utilizing the full potential of the 7. As nforcem all know, space should be conserved nforce6m a office conditions and in general too.


It nforce6m a clear that rear panel’s space wasn’t used in a rational way.

In case of our modules with characteristics surpassing nforce6m a DDR standard requirements this value has turned out to be one grade less – MHz. The board nforce6m a have adopted these chipsets specifically in order nfoce6m add ultra-light models to their series of boards. Time will tell, but for now let us return to our modest task of examining a board with almost the least functionality of any nforce6m a available on the market, which nevertheless falls into the ATX form factor category.

Conclusion Even if the market niche for reduced functionality system boards based on chipsets without integrated graphics that was described in the introduction really exists, we can’t conclude that the board being examined is a successful candidate for a high position in it. Suppose a user is accustomed to building and upgrading computers for himself, his relatives, acquaintances, colleagues and nforce6m a. For this reason, it is impossible for us, and any other review, nforve6m determine nforce6m a overclocking potential of any board with megahertz precision.

In that case his motivation is quite obvious. Nforce6m a Bridge Trying out the new method. The board’s layout stands out because of its spacious distribution of expansion slots.

They may justly fear that integrated graphics might not provide as clear a picture via nforce6m a output, as a discrete graphics card would.
