    ABIT AN7 or ABIT NF7-S ver 2?

    Hey guys! I'm buying a motherboard for my barton 2500+ o/c and from what I've heard Abit makes great mobos. So the question is then should I go with the proved NF7-S or the new and untested AN7 (which some seem to be having problems with)? Whats the real difference between them, please share your experiences with me!

    Thanks and don't consider the price cause it's the same here...

    NF7-S has less problems, and the chances are you'll never use any of the Uguru stuff. Its all just marketing gimmic really.

    I've got the NF7-S and I haven't had a problem yet. The NF7-S should be fine for overclocking a 2500+, and I can't really see any benefits with getting an AN7.

    Some of the dynamic overclocking functionality that is provided my mGuru is provided my by nforce drivers. System monitoring can be done using motherboard monitor....it's all a gimmick really, and for some reason the overclocking stability has suddenly decreased, as im sure you've noticed looking around. Get the nf7-s

    Or get the DFI Infinity like i did......has 4 sata ports...£64 from cpucity

    the nf7-s is £68 from there....if you want ...

    i dont work there, just like it...

    DFI Infinity Rev B or NF7-S V2.0 tbh is your best bet

    NF7-S V2.0 lurves CH-5 now btw as CH-5 is main memory used by TwinMOS, Kingston, OCZ, Corsair and others

    Many V2.0s have gone further on CH-5 than BH-5!

    But the write speed on SATA on the Infinity is 20% slower than on the NF7-S (before you say anything, I've got both )

    I have the NF7-S model, only had it about 3 weeks. So far its been great, i havent over clocked or anything. But it's been as stable as anything.
