    nForce4 SLI motherboards - anywhere in stock?

    Does anyone know where any can be found in stock? I've checked loads of places and no-where seems to have them. One place apparently did before Christmas but sold out.

    Thanks

    Nope i've been keeping track of stock at my usual favourite retailers, (scan, komplett, microdirect etc) all are expecting stock early Jan from what i can see.

    Guess you've got a few more days to wait till you can purchase one...

    Scan have had some. That I can verify. But they only had enough to cover back orders.

    Well, I would be interested in it, how much were you looking for for it?

    The Gigabyte has problems, just looking at it (if you mean the SLI board). For one thing the first PCI-e slot is directly in line with the NF4 chip and 4 of the SATA ports so you better be using very SHORT videocards. It's crap layout wise. And if it's anywhere near as difficult to overclock as their NF3 boards it's pure $hite!

    Edit: 2 regular PCI slots (only one usable if you run SLI). Crap! At least they used the bigger mosfets instead of the little ones that kept blowing up all the tim on their NF3 S939 boards! The ASUS has a really nice heatsink.

    I'll try to test both boards this weekend. Both boards have their problems from some of the preliminary reports. The MSI looks pretty good if you can find one. Wish I had a DFI to test.

    To be fair, there are another FOUR SATA ports, and the chipset cooler looks like its height should allow a graphics card to hang over it. The ASUS is similar although probably slightly better northbridge placement underneath the graphics card's heatsink rather than the PCB. Also the graphics card is gonna have to be pretty long to reach those SATA ports.

    Fair enough, but it won't have to be long to hang over the NB. Also anything over a 6600GT will have power cables.

    True, I can see SLI boards having a lot of heat issues with that northbridge. The ASUS has something like an 8krpm fan on it IIRC?

    I'll be slapping a waterblock on mine

    Anandtech liked the board, saying it was a good overclocker:

    But I agree that northbride could get a bit hot.

    Actually that was for the non-SLI model.
