    Opinions On Abit KN8 Sli please

    I'll be getting rid of all my pc's in the new year & just use one rig. I'm going Sli with 2 7800GTs & need to partner them with a sli board.

    What do people think of the Abit KN8 SLI, it's cheap and I love my current AN8 ultra board but I can't find any review of it or decent user feedback. Also does anyone know what the difference is between this and the AN8 Sli??? It'll be used for general duties, gaming & overclocking & partnered with a great clocking Opty 146.

    Cheers

    Jim

    I know 1 guy that has 1 & he likes it.

    As far as differences:
    No uGuru
    Uses a different (probably better) form of SLI enabling rather than the reversible card on the AN8 SLI
    onboard sound isn't on a daughter card so it gains an extra PCI-Ex1 slot
    Vdimm only goes to 3.2V iirc
    Power supply circuitry doesn't look quite as high spec (see above probably)
    No little red LEDs around the OTES area

    I'm waiting to see price/availability of AN8 32X

    MSI P55-GD80, i5 750
    abit A-S78H, Phenom 9750,
