The legend lives on as a RAID platform, Fileserver, NAS or basic officebox
13 July 2013
Summary: It's 2013. This is still a good workhorse if you need a basic machine, fileserver or NAS, because it was an absolute BEAST when it came out. Remember that it's an old board now- it is not a platform you will be building on to handle the newest games out there, but if you want to put together a file-crunching monster NAS or workhorse machine to use up the old PCI cards or tie in those firewire drives you have lying around, this veteran can handle it.
Summary: This is a very good motherboard packed with features. I used 3 or 4 of them to build bunch of computers for my office and one for my kid. Fast, reliable and easy to configure. Buy new, do not settle for the used one!
Summary: I use the A8N-SLI Deluxe Motherboard because it's dummy friendly. It's forgiving of me when I err in flashing a Bios update. Installing hardware is never a problem as you have plenty of info around the net to draw from. The popularity of this MB means there is always someone who's willing to help you with a snafu. I don't know what else to say other then it's just a reliable MB. Thank you.
Summary: This MB was purchased to replace a dead one in my son's PC: one month later, it too, was dead. Everything else (in terms of hardware) is working perfectly, including the 750-watt power supply, so I am at a loss to explain why this MB died when it did...one day working, the next day dead....I will probably never again purchase a used MB.
Summary: This board lasted for one month and died. When I received the board, it was a perfect fit for the original that was in the computer. It had a brand new power supply and booted up with no issued due to it being an exact match from the original. One month pasted, past the point I could return it and it failed to power up. I verified the power supply was good and that no external devices including the HD's were at fault.
Summary: i bought this mobo to replace exact same one that died on me so i wouldnt have to upgrade cpu and memory chips cost more than i paid origionally then couldnt get it to work so i took it to staples ez tech they worked on it for a week and decided the mobo was no good so i had to spend more money and get a new mobo mem cpu combo that works great all i can say is carp diem buyer beware i tossed mobo cpu and mem in trash that was 130 bucks wasted i will never ever buy a mobo...
Summary: This is my third motherboard that I have used to build PC's and I love it. It has every feature and is backward compatable with existing hardware... I think it is one of the best ever made........ Cecil D.
