Anyone tryed this board? or seen some tests?
There are a number of reviews of it, just Google for them if you haven't already. As for personal experience I don't think many people here have the board. While a good board the consensus seems to be that it is overpriced quite a bit and is not the best of the best as it tries to paint itself.
Meh, I would never replace Oskar Wu with Jonathan "Fatl1ty" Wendell. That is, IMO, why Abit has gone downhill ever sine he left.

You have to admit that the OTES mosfet and Ram cooling is pretty sick :p Though I would probably never buy this board because it will never be as good as IC7 series

I dunno. Call me old-fashioned, but the absence of a Parallel and Serial port seems to make it not appealing to me :-/ . Yeah, I know, those can be added via a USB adapter, but then, I dunno. took me a few weeks to get over the fact that I can't use my AWE64 on my A7N8X-X (crazy)

Yes, old fasion you are :). But I know how you feel, I recall when purchasing my Abit IC7-Max III, my dad picked up a Garmin GPS system and what do you know, it required serial connection >! LOL, god bless serial to USB converters :p
The absence of parallel and serial ports is plus to me :) I want a board with no IDE ports now...

LOL, I still have peripherals that use serial. My UPS has a serial interface with the computer. It's an old model but that's the thing: you don't replace a UPS, just the battery. I'll probably be using this thing in another 10 years. :)

I couldn't buy that board. Everytime I'd fire up my computer, I'd think of THIS!
