Mild agnosticism the view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."

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

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.
p4 3.0 with 8ik1100, 1gig corsair 433 xms,6600 GT,enermax 460w, Silverstone lc03 black, logitech z-680, Samsung 910t, audigy 2,liteon external 8dvdrw,WD SATA 120gb, 36g raptor,DVD Xpress,nostromo n52,mx1000 . all powered by your mom!!!

The only state Palestine is, is a state of Terrorism.

United under GOD! If you arent under GOD, then dont call yourself American. Allah isnt GOD.

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.
