    NF7. AN7 is buggy, is missing a few things overclocking wise (compared to the NF7), and generaly is a PITA.

    Personally if I was buying 1 today I would probably go AN7.
    It's not a perfect board but iirc a lot of the bugs have been worked out.
    Partly would be because I've never had 1 but also 3.2V Vdimm without a mod is rather nice (Vdimm is what holds my NF7s back) & also with the latest mod BIOS they've been hitting 250fsb no problem with 1 guy getting 280fsb on an unmodded board.

    I reviewed both last year ... although the NF7S had more features and did just seem nicer, I prefered the AN7 as it was slightly cheaper (dunno about now) and I loved the voltages you could use, gave me the edge to get a 2400XP further than on the NF7S (can't remember exacly how far now).

    TBH I'm not really plannin on OC'g the chip other than changing the FSB to 200 (XP2500) to give me the XP3200 goodness.

    i have the NF7S-2 & the past 3 computers i've built for others have had the same board, can't recommend it enough. i generally run my XP2500+ at XP3200+ speeds with no issues at all on this board
    if it ain't broke...fix it till it is
