That come as a surprise, 50% of motherboards will be Abit rebadged ECS motherboards. The high end motherboards will goes to other companies too. Look like Abit is quitted making motherboard themself.

Abit fans probably will be not pleased to hear that.

I have nothing but bad experiences with ABit - so no loss for me.

My next board will probably be an Asus or a DFI. I'm done w/Abit.

My Abit sucked. I swapped my AN8 for a DFI

I had an AN8 as well, I didn't like it at all. Got my ASUS running now and it's way better. :D

Even the "beloved" IC-7 was plagued with problems. The NB fan was a complete piece of junk. Honestly the last good Abit board I had was the BE6-II.

Yup, abit went downhill as soon as Oskar left. Sucky news, since my Abit IC7 was an awesome OC'r. Yea the NB fan was junk though.

Who is this Oskar Wu dude?

He was the head Engineer at Abit. Basically he is the guru at designing good overclocking boards. He now works for DFI.

Im using my old system with an NF7-S in it right now... I had my first one go bad and they sent me a bad one as an RMA but this one (3rd one) has been running beautifully ever since. I was pretty unhappy with that whole fiasco, but the hardware is awesome when you get a working one. Id hesitate to go Abit again, but if there was a warranty Id do it ;)

Abit is cool. I love my NF7-S even though it never truly suported DDR 400, but with dual channel ddr 333, who cared :D.

My first experience with ASUS, was not too great. The integrated Lan ethernet port was damaged (the actual port does not make a physical connection to the ethernet cable). I never felt like dismantling and paying $40 shipping (it sucks to live in Hawaii when you got to ship stuff) to RMA for a problem I fixed by buing a $14 NIC card. I made sure my new NIC had x64 driver so when Vista comes out, I can use x64. :D

It was no biggie, but It will make me think twice about buying ASUS. :p

Huh ? Of course it did. I had DDR400 running just fine on my NF7-S.
