    Well spotted. Reckon there'll be a couple of max-style fans there instead?

    Looking at it more, its nice to see Abit have the same poor power connector placement as ever
    I mean, what the heck is the 4pin molex doing right at the bottom...really...
    Just found out from Abits roadmap, that there will be 2 versions of the board. A "AN8 Fatal1ty" (has SLI by the looks of it) and "AN8-MAX". I dont know the exact differences, but im sure we can take educated guesses based on past MAX products.

    I cant really see if it has sound ports on that board. Im hoping it doesnt. If i cant have soundstorm, ill buy an external soundcard - AC97 is a waste of space for the people who will be buying the enthusiast boards.

    All of these boards are so tempting, but I'm sticking with Socket A for now. I reckon I can hold on for about another year before I start not being able to run games if I slap a decent graphics card into my machine. That probably means I'll be looking at nForce 5, or whatever they decide to call it. Of course, I'll be turning green with envy while you all get to play with your Winchesters and Newcastles and shiny new nForce 4 boards
