The system proved stable through all our benchmarking and ran multiple games for extended periods without a hiccup. The feature set and Deluxe name are generally reserved for Asus for their “notch-down” boards, which might indicate that Asus has plans for a top-line Premium board in the future. We have commented before that Asus pays close attention to the layout of their motherboards, and that also shows in the A8N-SLI Deluxe. Lately, Asus has stood at or near the top in overclocking, but that has been truer of Asus Intel solutions than those for AMD. The very first A8N-SLI Deluxe motherboard we received was horribly unstable and we spent the majority of our time just trying to get the thing to work. ASUS is expecting mass production of the A8N-SLI Deluxe to commence in the coming weeks; this is an extremely important motherboard for ASUS and they have extended their promise to us that it will be widely available before the holidays, most likely starting the first week of December. That is why I went looking for the same model when it finally died from a power spike.

Add to this below-average overclocking abilities and the problems experienced with our Ultra cards on just the Asus board, and it is hard to get too excited about this particular Asus board. If a company makes a worthy chipset, you can be sure Asus will be one of the first, if not the first to implement the assu technology into a motherboard design. That’s ten 10 drives. But as you will see in the roundup, there are better choices among the SLI boards available.

Asus says that this is required for “stable SLI operation”, but the other 3 SLI designs do fine zli are quite stable without the 5th power connector.

The board’s dual LAN has several very good on board defenses: You can change a staggering array of memory settings, adjust the memory clock by 1MHz increments, alter the CPU multiplier, and change the voltage on the chipset, CPU, and memory.

The feature set on the Asus is just average in this roundup. It was a perfect fit and in excellent condition. That is why I went looking for the same model when it finally died from a power spike. AFter countless hours of trying to get this to work AND of course upgrading bios and drivers, I came to find out that these two gigabyte cards are not certified by Nvidia and they will not work in the sli mode on this ASUS board.

As the PC world develops into the dual-core and bit arena Asus has market available products that support these new technologies.

The end result is that while the heatsink and fan do the best job they can, the heatsink gets extremely hot. The very first A8N-SLI Deluxe motherboard we received was horribly unstable and we spent the majority of our time just trying to get the thing to work. Our review is a bit on wsus late side on this one, but we have used the A8N-SLI in many of the other reviews we have done without actually reviewing the board itself. The motherboard also includes no less than eight serial ATA ports.

Enemy Territory Performance Battlefield: As the market changes and diversifies, Asus rolls with the punches with a constantly evolving attitude, one that reflects the current state of events in the X8n industry in an effort to stay one-step ahead of the game at all times. In its favor, the Asus was the only SLI board that allowed you to change the setup from “normal” to “SLI” without having to first remove the video card.

ASUS went one step further and also bundles a card that allows you to plug a SATA drive and power into your motherboard, externally without ever opening your case. This time, the server is on a UPS. But having w8n gigabit Ethernet makes up for that. The board itself is as feature filled as you could possibly imagine.
