    It does look nice. I guess I was right in holding out for something better! Wonder if it will sway the NF7-S mob to get one of these. Just say 'its overclocking potential is greater and better than the NF7-S' ... there will be a mad rush!

    Hmm. I cant see it being worth it. Its not as if its going to change the max limit of your cpu or allow you to run better mem timings.

    6 HD:s would be nice, but unless you need it, its going to add to the price. The onboard sound... unless its a replacement for the NF2 MCpt and is designed to do the same at a cheaper cost (cant really see it) then again, this is going to add £££'s for probably very little.

    Same thoughts here - the NF7-s can already support 6 Hd's anyway.
    I also cant see the point in it as Nvidia have recently released the system utility to monitor and change loads of stuff from any motherboard based on the NF2 chip-set. When Abit have updated their BIOS like other manufactures, will this uGuru have any advantage over it ?
    It seems like a gimmick to me. Anyone thats going to be overclocking that much will know where a problem will most likely be anyway.

    Nvidia have recently released the system utility
    Bit of a change of convo here but....
    Anyone installed this and have probs with it?
    It says my vcore is 1.38v but HWmonitor says its 1.63v
    I have it set for 1.65v in bios so i know HWmonitor is closer .

    Any reason for this you think?

    I have an NF7-S v2 with bios 19

    Its a known issue, and isnt just with the NF7 board.
    Looks like we will have to wait BIOS updates from the board makers to take full advantage of it.
