ASUS A8N-SLI Premium 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard

ICON Loading...

With a feature set second to none, the Asus A8N-SLI is a highly integrated NVIDIA nForce4 motherboard with an impressive set of features ideal for high-end tweaking. The ATX design affords better airflow to the processor, along with an innovative heatpipe design that transfers heat to a small thin-finned cooler around the CPU socket; this is supported by the airflow from an adjacent heatsink and fan assembly. Heat dangers from overclocking are much less of a problem with this excellent, quiet, system.

This innovative board takes full advantage of SLI technology, supporting a maximum of 4 GB DDR RAM with performance potential nearly double that of a single graphics card. The back panel sports dual Gigabit Ethernet ports courtesy of state-of-the-art Marvell controllers in combination with NVIDIA's built in Gigabit MAC with NV Firewall and ActiveArmor intrusion detection features.

This powerful and feature-rich board fully exploits SLI’s myriad opportunities afforded, and is an excellent offering as we’ve come to expect from ASUS.

5 out of 5 eggsStill Running in 2014 even after a Lightning Strike

Pros: I was looking back to verify connectors (thanks Newegg for keeping old hardware posted - much appreciated) when I realized some people are posting on this board after many years of ownership. I have had mine since 2007. And to say it Durable as one owner put it would be an understatement of the century. After a lightning strike affecting all connected ports on my router and killing my DSL modem and home audio system. This board proceeded to burn out each of the 4GB ram cards one at a time (though I don't blame the board for this - read on) and the Marvel Yukon E-Net controller was toast as the external wire side opto-isoloators are likely gone - by design this is what should occur. Heck it just got hit by lightning. So what I did was replace 4 mem sticks with just 2 and buy a power supply which I figured was causing power issues on the board thus killing the ram and swapped the Ethernet to the NVIDIA nForce (other port) and it has been working like a rock star since the event which was a year or so ago. Which is why I recently purchase 2 more ram chips to bring it back up to four GB. If it gave up the ghost tomorrow I guess I would say "about time" though I am guessing I purchased the 9-lives edition of the board.

Cons: None - I must have purchased 9-lives edition

5 out of 5 eggskiller board

Pros: it has lasted 7 years and is still going! i have upgraded everything around a bit at a time, but it is now time for a major rebuild. I love this board. I'm putting it in my girlfriends case for an upgrade for her as I make myself a new asus machine in the same old antec alluminum case. Even after years I can run almost anything I want to. I am a photographer who demands a lot of processing, and this still delivers even without having put the best possible processor in it.

Cons: none at all. I more than got my money out of this board, it doesn't owe me a thing!

Other Thoughts: I can only hope that my next Asus, on the way now, can perform anywhere near as well.

5 out of 5 eggsWorkhorse!

Pros: This board has been rock-solid running 7x24x365 for 7 years!! I bought this in 2005 as a present for myself getting a career. two promotions, 6 bosses, a new house, and 3 different operating systems late, it is still champing!

Cons: Some capacitors exploded and I had to RMA the bard a couple months after I bought it. Newegg service was great, and I had my board back in less than 2 weeks.

Other Thoughts: I have run Windows XP, Windowx XP x64, Ubuntu something or other, and for the past 5 years, Server 2003.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice board, has a few flaws

Pros: I have not owned this board since Feb 2007, when I sold it for my E6400 and Asus P5B Deluxe. The board is very stable and has a LOT of features. It is a premium board and Asus makes quality components.

The board is very good at overclocking.

Cons: After around a year the northbridge fan failed. I noticed I would get beeps due to the fan speed being too low. If you google "A8N sli fan fail" you will see what I mean; as its a very common problem with the board. The bios would state:

"Warning: Your computer chip fan fail or speed too low
You can also disable this warning message in setup"

I disabled the warning and monitored my temperatures with speedfan to ensure they were not too hot. This was with no overclock and just a stock A64 3200+ Venice cpu. I bought a replacement generic northbridge fan from newegg and that solved the issue.

Other Thoughts: The board served me well before and after replacing the northbridge fan. I was able to overclock my A64 3200+ venice with 2 x 512 mb sticks of DDR 400 mhz Adata generic RAM from stock 2000 mhz to 2600 mhz and run 3DMark 06. I never kept the chip at those speeds for more than a few minutes so that is not the reason the fan failed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: -AMD
-ASUS
-NVIDIA
-Runs Ubuntu 12.04 Beta 2 really good
-Lasting longer than my DELL computer's board that was <10 months old and had it's SB fry.
-IT'S NOT DELL!
-Work for me

Cons: It's just not up to "today's standards" like other people prefer.

Other Thoughts: I personally have had this board only for said time. I actually got this board from my cousin that had originally bought it and he had had it for quite some time as well so it is still running strong for it's age.

5 out of 5 eggs6 years of great memory, GREAT BOARD!

Pros: I love this board. I had it for 6 years, runing 24/7. but today I got a blue screen of death... RIP my friend. you will be missed.

Cons: none for this board nor for other asus's primium and delux boads. they are great. But I can't say the same for asus's cheaper boards. I had bad experience with them almost made a disbeliever of asus' mother boards.

Other Thoughts: I hope their next generations of mother boards are good as this one.

Pros: i know this board is discontinued..i know 939 socket has gone by the wayside..but this board rocks..i have had it now for close to 4 years and never had a problem..should have called it an a8n sli-timex. when i built with this board. top of line epuipment went in..750watt psu..4 sticks of corsair platnium memory.. fx-57 cpu (changed to dual core a few days ago) 2 7950gt oc's ..no longer a gammer so i sold one off and buy the way, it still works .ran the cpu overclocked at 3.0ghz for the whole time i had it, years. no problems whatsoever. and buy the way my windows xp media center 2005 saw 3 out of the four sticks.

Cons: none, whatsoever

5 out of 5 eggsDurable

Pros: Reliable, lots of features and options.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this board in 2006. Took it out at around 2008 when I upgraded my CPU. I literally tossed this motherboard around for 3 years without use. I was shocked when I put it together yesterday and it worked. It is a pleasure to use Asus motherboards

5 out of 5 eggsA Dinosaur!

Pros: Reliable, a juggernaught

Cons: If only i could replace the socket type!

Other Thoughts: I have owned and used this board for 6 years, although now discontinued, the motherboard is still going strong and keeping up with all the games that have come out even now in 2011. I will be very sad when the time comes to replace it, only because the processor needs updating.

Thank you ASUS for providing me with a stable MOBO on which i have never had a problem
