Today we are looking at Gigabyte’s latest offering for the Pentium 4 based on the Intel IP or better known as the Canterwood chipset. This is a separate, add-in card that gives the 8KNXP 6-phase power circuitry instead of 3-phase. Today Pentium 4 users are finally seeing what Intel has to offer, not because of new additions to the processor but by finally giving their supporters and end users what has been wanted – a cheap memory solution that gives full bandwidth that the Pentium 4 craves. Let’s take a good look. Every header, jumper and even silk screen, is labelled. Gigabyte claims that, in Parallel mode versus Backup mode , DPS 2 is able to deliver better system stability especially while overclocked in addition to longer onboard components life.

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 When monitoring the voltages though the BIOS, the values were about the same with and without the DPS module, which is exactly what we would have expected to see since the DPS2 module and onboard powersupply work in parallel.
