I'm putting together a computer for a friend, andcame across this board.. However, I can't find any reviews on it . The board will be used to overclock a X2 3800+ or a 165, and he will not be using SLI.
The obvous choice is a lanparty nf4-ultra or an epox 9npa+ ultra, but the Abit looks cooler than the epox (he'll be using a BigWater SE, so.. )and has the same price tag.
Now, anyone know the capabilities of this board? i know the AN8 is quite good, but the KN8 is hardly in the same price-range.. Other suggestions are welcomed too. I'm trying to get him a lanparty, cos the UV-effects are c00l, but it's a bit more exensive that the rest, so..
I bought a KN8 Ultra maybe a month ago. I'm not planning to overclock it, or maybe only slightly just for grins. I put a 3200+ (Venice) and an eVGA 6600 on it. So far I've been very satisfied, although I'm not a hardcore gamer (I do play a lot of Guild Wars, but not FPS). It has 4 DDR slots (2 used now), 4 SATA ports, and I forget how many extra USB headers, but more than I need (8?), not counting 4 USB ports in the back.
The only glitch I've found is that the extra fan I put in the back isn't reporting its speed even though it has a 3-pin connector. I suspect that's most likely the fan. It may be that only only the front fan header gets reported; I've not dug into it yet.
