Yeah, not really new news and innocent until proven guilty last time I checked. Also note that the NF7 series is not listed.

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.

I thought that too, then both the PS2 ports died, the mic port never worked on the on in my second pc (the one that I actually wanted a mic on). Then there was installing my 6800GT, because of the large HS I couldn't have anything plugged into IDE1 while I had my card in. Then, my primary PC died, yep, was the motherboard.

No more Abit for me.

ABIT is a great overclocking board...HOWEVER...the Fans on them break, go out, pop off...at my work(pcclub with jakup), these are the stats:

Myself: gigabyte ik1100, no probs
tech1: msi 865neofi2sr, no probs
tech2: Abit ic7-g northbridge fan popped off(broke)
Sales1: Abit ic7-g Dead board
Sales2: Abit ic7 northbridge fan broke off
Sales3: Abit max3 mosfet fan went out


so i would say DONT buy ABIT!!! altho their SATA RAID drivers are VERY good unlike gigabyte or MSI.

That's ridicilous. I've have two Soltek and a MSI board with these faulty capacitors, but two Abit that doesn't have them. I doubt any manufacturer knew that all capacitors coming from this factory were defective... I mean, it's not exactly a common thing for defective components being sold on such a large scale. Isn't there a website that explains that these caps were due to a company stealing another company's incomplete formula? That company should be sued if anything.

I don't expect any company to repair or replace every single motherboard... it would be a loss on a huge scale. I rather see them putting the money into developing new awesome boards.
