SysOpt put this mobo through its paces:

Gigabyte's putting a new twist on the transition market with its GA-P35C-DS3R, supporting two types of memory, along with full overclocking adjustments. How will it succeed in its aims to appeal to early adopters and overclockers as well as more budget-conscious buyers already invested in DDR2?

The P35C-DS3R's standout feature is, of course, its DDR2 and DDR3 dual-compatibility. Since DDR3 is not backward compatible, supporting both requires two sets of memory slots; adding these additional slots mandates a rather wide board. Gigabyte extended the board's width to the standard ATX limit, added four DDR2 and two DDR3 slots, and used some of the remaining empty space on the enlarged board to put the ATX power and floppy drive connectors. These have the added benefit of being placed in more pragmatic positions than most boards offer. (More on these features in a moment.)
