Albatron PX915G Pro

..:: Introduction ::..

Our first experience with an Albatron motherboard was a good one, and came a few months back with their high-end i875P model, the PX875P Pro. In our time working with that motherboard, we found that the product package had its strong and weak points, namely that the included items were relatively few, but the documentation was excellent. The board featured a solid design, a fair BIOS, and an overzealous overclocking claim. Today, we’re taking a look at Albatron’s i915G entry, the PX915G Pro. This motherboard features some of the same strengths and weaknesses found by the PX875P Pro, but where have things improved? Has Albatron improved overclocking capabilities with the i915G board, namely can they compete with the big boys of the overclocking world? Read on to find out!
