Since January this Taiwanese company have really taken the hardware community by storm. The Intel iPE chipset officially brings DDR support to the table, and if you are lucky enough to be able to afford a new 3. Albatron recently celebrated their very first anniversary, and looking back it has been quite a year for this upstart motherboard and videocard maker. Write a comment below. Albatron have in just a short time, made their mark among enthusiasts and overclockers for producing high quality computer components.

Intel announces DDR333 Chipsets: 3-way 845PE shootout
I complained about it last time and I’ll complain about it again, the floppy drive connector is in a bad location.
Pc845pev to the same area as the 20 pin connector would suffice. To top things off, Albatron have also made attempts to cozy up to consumers by pricing their products very aggressively; they’re not always the least expensive on the market, but they usually do offer some of the best value around.

Location of the IDE connectors are placed quite sensibly, however, the floppy disk connector is in a rather obscure position. The Albatron board uses a rather impressive cooler system. This is a albatrn small form for an I based board. The sliding lock seems to be much better than the older lever type AGP lock, and it’s easier to engage. This way it is less likely that the cables will not get in the way of any expansion cards. Video 3Digests Video cards: The following controllers are integrated: Albatron uses a small ATX form factor motherboard measuring mm x mm.
Originally intended to only replace the IE chipset, the IPE proved to aobatron a far superior chip for overclocking. Albatron has built into the fan, three LED’s that blink in a random order.
What is the final word? With it located at the very bottom of the motherboard, users with full tower cases like the Inwin Q will have big problems getting the drive and motherboard connected. Because the iPE generates a lot of heat at high bus speeds, I was extremely happy to see Albatron included an actively cooled copper heatsink. The 3-channel switching voltage regulator incorporates 7 capacitors of uF and 3 of uF.
If you have a large ATX case with the Floppy disk up high, some floppy cables may not reach properly. With the videocard locked in, it won’t accidentally come loose in the socket while the power is on.
Albatron should have placed their IDE port connectors just a bit lower on the motherboard then it’s current position, but now I’m just getting anal. The Intel iPE chipset officially brings DDR albatroj to the table, and if you are lucky enough to be able to afford a new 3.
