    i have found a couple gigabyte mother boards.

    GA-7N400-L1 and the GA-7N400-L i think this is just a older version of the GA-7N400-L1

    aswell as the GA-7N400 Pro

    a chaintech 7NJL1 APOGEE

    i am lookin for the most o ver clockable board that is stable at the highest settins alont with cost effective for me. and is going to be worth my while.


    these are all the nforce2 boards but your opinions are welcome

    if i get no reply or find nothin that sparks my interest more then the abit nf7 im just gona get thatl. maybe a gigabyte board.. seems to be packed with features.
    but i cant spend more then 90 bucks. on the main board.

    Bios flashing problem?


    I am pretty sure the capacitor issue is fixed, SLK/ROB P agrees.


    I have no hard proof other than my OCed and very hot temp IC7 is running flawlessly.



    EDIT: My Abit AT7 MAX2 Also runs fine.

    When i orderd my nfs-7 it was version 2 from newegg. When downside for the board is it seems not to like the multipliers of 10, 10.5. Other people have this problem on the Abit forums. Check it out.

    Nforce drivers crashing ATI ? Why would it? IF an Nforce mobo couldn't use an ATI card, alot of enthusiasts wouldn't even touch it. Doesn't make sense.
