Thanks for the help. To help the motherboard deal with the additional load, Asus has also placed a dedicated molex connector just above the first PCI Express slot. Had those devices been implemented through the PCI Express bus probably at the expense of one of the PCI Express x4 slots it would not potentially slow down the legacy PCI bus and allow both devices to operate at full speed. With LAN parties becoming more popular and devices in the PC getting larger and heavier, it makes sense for motherboard manufacturers to bundle in the metal SLI retention bracket, which is included here. It’s working great and with 7.

One word of warning however. Send a private message to Mark Seyler.
My qualms lie with high bandwidth devices running through the PCI bus specifically. I have noticed while trying to trace the error of escalating cpu usage while using DVerb The general rule in computers is that as things get faster, more heat is produced.
Given that northbridge and MOSFETs are now both cooled by a relatively small section of heatsink fins, if watercooling or a phase change system is used on the processor, PCSTATS highly recommends that a fan be set up to direct airflow over the heatpipe heatsink. To help the motherboard deal with the additional load, Asus has also placed a dedicated molex connector just above the first PCI Express slot.
Up to two Serial ATA devices can be connected outside the case. As the A8N-SLI Premium is a high end motherboard, Asus include all the necessary cables and brackets to take full advantage of its onboard peripherals. Your best bet is to buy a PCI Firewire card unless you can verify that the chipset used for the onboard controller is qualified by Digidesign.

While the technology being applied here is nothing new, it does remove one fan from the motherboard system, and that goes a little way towards reducing the overall noise signature of a PC. In general the hardware community has been quite tough on Asus.
At first glance the feature set of the Asus A8N-SLI Premium is quite impressive, however upon closer inspection, it looks like Asus was trying more to meet a “marketing check list”.

This is great as it helps keep the system clear of potential cas airflow obstructions, and makes cable management a real breeze. Other devices such as motherboard chipsets have flirted with extravagant cooling solutions in the past, but in reality this was not really very necessarily until recently.

When installed, the bracket ensures that the little SLI bridge does not come loose during transportation, and it also helps to keep the videocard snugly in aus sockets.
Had those devices been implemented through the PCI Ski bus probably at the expense of one of the PCI Express x4 slots it would not potentially slow down the legacy PCI bus and allow both devices to operate at full speed.
The time now is I guess the only exceptions these days are VIA based motherboards – most get away with a little green passive heatsink.

It’s running great for me so far I’ve only had it a couple of weeks. On one hand I’d think onboard firewire would be more efficient, but on the other hand, it would require more from the CPU.
Send a private message to Larry Younkins. I’m using an Adaptec firewire card. Third Eye Studios Member. Running two videocards in SLI mode draws a lot of power.
While its motherboards have performed well and are ass of features, there has been grumblings about the heatsink Ssli selected for its nForce4 motherboards. Find all posts by Digitalkidd.

Anyone got good results from Asus M2N Motherboard. Over the years we’ve seen processor heatsinks, and to a lesser degree videocard coolers, increase in size to compensate for the ever larger amounts of heat they must dissipate.
