they killed the nvidia audo and added a crappy C-media chip


there are better nforce2 boards IMO

I was considering it.


I am looking for an amd board with both ide raid and d ddr. Anyone know of one besides the zenith?

ChainTech is such a newcomer to MB's,you'll have a hard time getting real life experiences.Why don't you be the guinnea?

Id get that and a promise 2000 raid controller maybe?

If it's cheaper then the MSI K7N2 board, then go for it. Seems not bad and I'm sure a Nforce 2 board is a Nforce2 board. :D

Those boards look really nice, lots of features, good reviews. I had a Chaintech GF3 Ti200 that was rock solid, good overclocker, I think they're worth a second look, however they are still priced a bit steep, around $170us.

I'd snag the Asus Deluxe, or MSI. Chaintech for some reason took away the superior nVidia audio (one of the main reasons to get an nForce based mobo), instead going for a budget one.

it looks like it's got ATA/UDMA raid on it? Not sure only seeing 3 ide interfaces here..
