Not so Good 01/03/2008
This review is from: ABIT IN9 32X-MAX LGA 775 Nvidia nForce 680i SLI / NF590 SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
Lights, eSata, external CMOS reset, plethora of ports and such. Nice layout.
Doesn't work! Put this in with a q6600, 8800gts 640mb, 4gb corsair dominator, 150gb raptor and the system failed after 1 day. Now it won't go past the BIOS.
I wouldn't recommend this board as the BIOS it ships with basically sucks. Trying to update it is also another pain as the latest stable bios is bigger than a floppy disk including the flash utility. So you have to find a way to make ur thumb drive bootable but I found it easier to burn a boot cd image and attach the bios bin there. If you got this Boad to work for you then good for you! I've heard nothing but horror stories regarding this board and chipset. Don't know who to blame though but my previous Asus p5N32-e SLI board worked well for me.
