ABIT KN8 Ultra 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs A very solid motherboard 12/11/2005

This review is from: ABIT KN8 Ultra 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: I really appreciate this motherboard. It works perfectly with my setup and I would highly recommend this motherboard to anyone else. Ok, my build is as follows:
Abit KN8 Ultra motherboard
AMD Athlon X2 4800+
2gb Corsair XMS 500mhz
Creative Labs X-Fi Platinum
eVGA nVidia 7800 GTZ 512mb edition
74gb Western Digital Raptor
250gb Seagate Barracuda
Zalman 7700-cu heatsink

These components all function seamlessly with one another and I am very happy with both this build and the excellent sevice I received from Newegg.

Cons: Only one small gripe. With my dual slot graphics card, there isn't a lot of space. I have one slot in between my sound card and graphics card and I'm keeping it for issues of cooling.

Other Thoughts: Key points:
Runs cool. My CPU is a 22.5 degrees celsius and my system is at 34 degrees.
BIOS is easy to use. I was easily able to overclock as well as tinker with memory timings.
Great instructions. This was actually my first build but I had two experienced computer builders to help me, but they didn't need to assist at all, since this board was such an easy install. The instructions are remarkably clear and understandable for being a motherboard. No motherboard you purchase will ever have standard english as everything is done overseas, but this motherboard was very descriptive in an understandable way. Kudos to ABIT for understanding the native language of its customers.

EVGA GeForce 7800GTX DirectX 9 512-P2-N545 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This card is incredible. This card definitely demolishes my old card, a Radeon 9000. Compared to my friend's set up, mine devastated my friend's x850. This card was definitely the icing on the cake for my new build:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+
Creative Labs X-Fi Platinum
2gb Corsair XMS Ram
74gb Western Digital Raptor
250gb Seagate Barracuda
Antec TruePower 550W PSU
Thermaltake Xaser case
Abit KN8 Ultra
RAZER Copperhead Mouse
Saitek Eclipse Keyboard

This card is an immense improvement for me. Thank you eVGA for making such a fine product.

Cons: Mine didn't include Call of Duty 2. Unfortunately they've run out of it. Oh well, I bought the card for the graphical performance anyways

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this product to anyone willing to spend a sizeable chunk of cash for a beautiful card. Everything about this card screams perfection.


5 out of 5 eggs Incredible Product 02/17/2005

This review is from: BELKIN F8GFPC100 Nostromo n52 SpeedPad

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I really enjoy using this product. I have found it to be incredibly useful for gaming. It was awkward at first, but I eventually grew to enjoy it's use, especially with 1st person shooters such as Halo and Half-Life 2. Great Product. I would highly recommend it to any type gamer, either casual or hard-core.
