The amount of space in-between the two PCI-E x16 slots is excellent and allows for a two-slot or third party video card cooling solution to be utilized. Up to two Serial ATA devices can be connected outside the case. What our customers say about us 4. Ask a question Compare. In general the hardware community has been quite tough on Asus.

Asus did not include the new cable designs in their accessory kit, which greatly enhance the security of the SATA connections. While its motherboards have performed well and are full of features, there has been grumblings about the heatsink Asus selected for its nForce4 motherboards.
My qualms lie with high bandwidth devices running through the PCI bus specifically. Running two videocards in SLI mode draws a lot of power. The DIMM module slots’ color coordination is correct for dual channel setup. You can Pay with: Up to two Serial ATA devices can prejium connected outside the case.
I guess the only exceptions these days are VIA based motherboards – most get away with a little green passive heatsink. The a8n-zli of this design asu a very good balance of slots and allows for numerous add-in peripheral cards. After years of complaining about bad component locations it seems like motherboard manufacturers are finally starting to listen! The whole system is fanless, but relies on the exhaust air generated by the CPU heat sink fan to cool the finned heat sink.

Asus A8N-SLI Premium NVIDIA Socket 939 ATX Motherboard
This is great as it helps keep the system clear of potential cas airflow obstructions, and makes cable management a real breeze. 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. Asus has engineered a very effective cooling system that utilizes a small heat sink attached to a heat pipe that comes in direct contact with the nForce4-SLI chipset.
Orders will be shipped on a first come first served basis. 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”. Write a review Reviews will be active after verification. The molex connector is required when utilizing two video cards in SLI operation.
The general rule in computers is that as things get faster, more heat is produced. The Item is built to order. What our customers say about us 4.
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 their sockets. We are a very small business, yet they have always taken the time to make sur…. 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.
What this does is allow larger third party cooling solutions to be installed on the videocards, or even a water cooling apparatus.
