In typical fashion, the engineers at Abit have produced yet another memorable product that ranks as one of the best i925XE motherboards currently available, at least in our book. The Fatal1ty AA8XE is a rock-solid motherboard that exhibited no instability whatsoever throughout our testing session, until it was heavily overclocked well beyond default speeds. It's got all of the features enthusiasts look for in a motherboard, minus the legacy ports that are rarely used today. The Fatal1ty AA8XE is aesthetically pleasing, and its updated OTES (Outside Thermal Exhaust System) cooling system is far more effective and quieter then previous versions. The Fatal1ty AA8XE's benchmark scores were some of the best we've seen from an i925XE powered board, it has a bevy of overclocking options.
