Conclusion: In some ways, the IN9 32X-MAX WiFi is a classic abit motherboard. It offers a host of features for the enthusiast and its BIOS gives an outrageous degree of control over the board's performance. abit's uGuru gives you fine control over thermal shutdown, system monitoring and more - and you can set the BIOS to give warnings or shut down the system according to any of the temperature sensors, not just the CPU's or the system temperature.
Excerpt: If you’ve seen one Nvidia 680i reference board, you’ve seen them all. Not so with Abit’s IN9 32X-MAX board, which thumbs its nose at the me-too crowd. The IN9 32X-MAX features Nvidia’s top 680i chipset, which gets you two x16 PCI-E slots for SLI, a third full-length x8 PCI-E slot for graphics, and support for unannounced, unofficial 1,333MHz FSB processors. We’ve nagged Abit about funky slot configurations before, but the IN9 makes no such mistakes.
Pros: Easy-to-use BIOS is still our favorite.
Cons: Mediocre documentation; Realtek audio doesn’t support EAX.
Summary: It seems to me, that Abit are getting better and better with each generation of their new motherboards. I must applaud them for producing such great motherboards with enthusiasts in mind. They seem to know exactly what the enthusiasts want ... good performance, overclockability, stability and great features. These are the things that you'll find here.
Flagship motherboards tend to offer a lot of extra features, this is definitely the case with the IN9 32X-Max.
Excerpt: nForce 680i motherboards are now starting to pop up from all the major players in the motherboard industry. ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte have already released boards that differ from the nVidia reference design. We have tested the ASUS board, the MSI product is on its way and now more are starting to flow in.
Summary: This motherboard left some dubious impressions. On the one hand, there was nothing to complain about the technical part: the board was running stably, fully revealing its capabilities of the NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI chipset and offers powerful onboard expansion options (plus a Wi-Fi expansion card).
On the other hand, the produce of abit has always been perceived by users as solutions for overclockers.
