Default WARNING for people win ABIT IN9-32MAX

I got a BFG 280GTX for Christmas and installed it today. Had a bit of a nightmare because the mobo I have (IN9-32MAX) has a capacitor right in the way of card's casing near the back of the mobo. I got the board in, but the card was pushing down on the capacitor causing the mobo to bend horribly!

Everything seemed to be working except the sound card. It turned out that the mobo was so bent that the sound card was no longer making good enough contact with its socket. In the end I moved the graphics card to the second PCIe port and everything is now OK.

I also had to upgrade the BIOS from version 12 to version 15 to stop the sound from stuttering.

All is now ok, but I can not install a 280GTX in PCIe slot #1, meaning no SLI with this mobo

As a matter of interest, the 8800 GTX I replaced had no such issues.

I read about this. Bad design. I had two, both were faulty with NB problems so I got a different board. My mate has one though and it's been a great board for him. Typical 680i story.

Yeah, it's a pitty. They had some good ideas.

My board has been fine now for nearly 2 years, but I had some real problems back at the start with it, and I have to run my RAM at 800 instead of 1066 or else I get hard drive corruption!

That is sad that they are going under I have always liked ABit products as they are usually good quality and their BIOS support has been good (albeit a bit slow sometimes).

I guess that explains why I can't find the forums any more...

R.I.P.
