    Difference between versions 1 and 2 of the A7N8X Deluxe?

    What are the basic differences between the two versions? Is the second a lot better for any reason? Was looking at a second had one, but its version 1, is this a major thing, compared to getting a version 2?

    Cheers,

    Alex

    The main difference is probably the fact that version 1 boards weren't stable at running 200MHz FSB. Dunno about other differences though (maybe something to do with SATA or sound or other onboard chips...).

    my v1 is stable at 215mhz.

    i reckon v2 has more headroom though

    yeah V1 boards were notorious for the bios wipeing itself when you tried to change settings, even V2 boards have this problem tho the updated bios seems to be less suicidal. I had 2 V1 boards commit suicide the same way - the 1st one after i tried overclocking and the second as i tried to change my AGP aperture

    I had a V2 board that did it aswell, so after this I decided that asus were well and truley rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbishe at mobos still, and went for a nice MSI one

    Got a v1 here and it's been fine, it's been running pretty much 24/7 for a year without incident..
