ASUS is one of the big boys when it comes to enthusiast hardware, no doubt. They consistently have very fast, quality products for both AMD and Intel chips. There has been a noticeable lack of good SLI for Athlons, though, and though there have been a few SLI AMD boards out there, I have to say personally none of them wowed me. This puppy here just might. Sporting a heatpipe to cool the northbridge alleviating heat concerns from years prior, a whopping eight SATA channels on board, RAID support and dual LAN (including gigabit), this board is very similair in scope to the A7N8X-E Deluxe. It has it all, and more. Read the review and check the specifications. It is a very impressive board, for overclockers and enthusiasts alike.
