The latter option actually makes no perceptible difference to system speed – all it does is slightly reduce overall RAM latency, which for desktop tasks achieves three-fifths of nothing in particular.

Want a top-class Socket motherboard? But if you don’t like the AC97 sound, you can always disable it. The surface finish on a heat sink that’s primarily cooled by air flow is pretty much completely irrelevant, but it sure looks purty. With its built in sound and reasonable price, this board would actually do fine as the basis for a plain vanilla PC, running an old Celeron or something. We are an established market leader, from. AMR modems are dirt cheap it’s now possible to buy them retail – only system integrators could get them at first but they’re all “host based modems” that need special drivers in order to work.

Performance differences between computers with different motherboards, if there are any to speak of at all, come from the motherboards’ extra features, like CPU and RAM overclocking and faster hard disk interfaces.

They don’t tell us whose military specification these circuit boards are alleged to meet.
