Gigabyte E350N-USB3 Review



To test the Gigabyte E350N-USB3, I will be running a series of synthetic and real-world benchmarks that will test the system's ability to process large files and run 3D video. For comparison, the E350N will be pitted against three other Mini-ITX media-focused boards — two ION platform boards (one Celeron, one Atom) and another E350 Fusion board. Unless otherwise stated, all hardware is run at their stock speeds, latencies, voltages, etc., to prevent any outside interference.


Testing Setup:

  • Processor: AMD Dual Core E350 APU
  • Motherboard: Sapphire PURE Fusion Mini E350
  • Memory: 2x 2GB Mushkin DDR3 1600MHz @ 1066MHz
  • Video Card: Integrated AMD Radeon HD 6130 Graphics Processor
  • Power Supply: Corsair 750W Power Supply
  • Hard Drive: 1x Seagate 750GB SATA
  • Optical Drive: Lite-On DVD+/-RW
  • Case: NZXT Phantom (with 1 case fan)
  • OS: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit





Overclocked Settings:

  • CPU Overclock: 110 x 8 = 1760MHz

Overclocking the E350N was a fairly simple task. I started by bumping the bus speed up in increments of five, then adjusting the voltage until it was stable. I finally settled at 110MHz @ 1.5V (+0.250V), which remained stable during all the testing. In addition, switching the memory multiplier from 5.3 to 6.6 yielded a stable 1333MHz clock on the RAM without any voltage increase. Unfortunately, I could not squeeze any extra MHz out of the GPU without causing instability.
