Summary: I've owned one of these in the past and was very impressed by its performance. I have always liked Asus. They have great products and support. This motherboard is, in my opinion, one of the best socket 939 motherboards developed. If you are looking for a good gaming motherboard with dual PCI-Express x16 slots and 4g ddr 400 support with an amazing chipset I would highly recommend this motherboard.
Summary: Purchased 2 of these to upgrade 939 motherboards that I use in my business. Did not want to go into the expense of upgrading everything. These Asus boards are new have a 3 year warranty. Flashed the bios, downloaded all the updates from the web site, good to go!
Summary: ASUS A8N-SLI Premium is a top quality product. PROS: complete and very stable socket 939 solution with cooling heat-pipe technology(noiseless); SLI support; latest dual core CPU support; dual channel memory DDR400; nVidia's RAID technology ; 2 Gigabit ethernet ports with firewall; Firewire; excelent lay-out; overclock support and very good performance. ASUS added also a secondary 3114R SATA RAID controller (by Silicon Image) supporting RAID0,0,0+1,5 modes. Outstanding!
Summary: This motherboard comes with twice the cables that you will need to set up a computer, so you will always have a handy replacement box full of parts in case something goes wrong (not very often) or you decide to upgrade. The northbridge has a passive cooler, which greatly reduces the noise of the computer. BIOS settings are decent and if you know what you are doing, you should have no problem with it. It also offers a program that will automatically overclock your rig.
Excerpt: Das Mainboard überzeugt im normalen Betrieb durch Stabilität und umfangreiche overclocking Funktionen, eine spezielle Funktion das automatische Overklocking ist gut für Anwender geeignet die selber lieber die Finger von den Einstellungen lassen. Das Bios ist übersichtlich aufgebaut, auch das Bordlayout ist übersichtlich, sehr gut sind die beiden PCIe 16x Solots gelegen, da es zwischen ihnen 2Slots Platz gibt, so ist eine bessere Luftzirkulation möglich, die Grafikkarten...
Pros: SLI, PCIe Slots weit voneinader entfernt, Zukunftssicher (Sockel 939)
