Coupled with some newer chipset drivers and some BIOS updates, this board should definitely be a winner and have some great performance to boot. Looking at it overall I feel the Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe is a great product. Asus worked hard to make this board one of the first to market sporting the newest nVidia nForce4-SLI chipset. They also added a huge list of features and accessories that would make anyone in the market for a new system drool. Although at the extreme end of overclocking, the Asus A8N-SLI was not the top dog, it still did allow for a great stable overclock. For those not looking to overclock to the brink, I can see this board being the center of a really great AMD64 system.
I am giving the Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe motherboard 8.5 out of 10. I would like to thank Asustek for sending us this new motherboard for review.
