    ABIT AN8 Fatal1ty S939 Motherboard

    ABIT Fatal1ty AN8's passes its biggest test, that is, being a supreme enthusiast-orientated S939 motherboard. What makes it so good is the sensible choice of a feature-rich chipset, nForce4 Ultra, and due care and attention that's given over to both frequency and fan-speed manipulation. These two factors combine to push the sample's stable HTT frequency to 320MHz - the highest yet seen at HEXUS. It's achieved without any additional cooling and it paves the way for the Fatal1ty AN8 to be paired with the best S939 overclocking CPUs available today, be they Venice or San Diego cores.

    Nice review as always - will you be doing the Fatality AN8 SLi too (& for that matter the non-Fatality AN8 Ultra or AN8 SLi)?
    I'm getting very close to buying 1 - I just haven't settled on which!

    btw the Fatality AN8 SLi has 3.55V Vdimm but my understanding is that it has a different hardware design from the Ultra to allow this.

    Your correct Buff, it uses a different voltage regulator as well as a few other things.

    I'll probably get the SLI version in when I get back from Computex, if you can wait that long (a good couple of weeks).
    MOLLY AND POPPY!

    As opposed to a bad couple of weeks?

    I've got it right now. I'll be comparing it to EPoX's S939 SLI implementation.

    Just as soon as I get out from under the latest box-of-bits that Dave's organised for me

    Looking at the back end of next week. Both boards are pretty solid on all counts.
