The Tech Report examines ABIT's AN8-32X, a nVIDIA based board with some very useful features.  Among the things that make the board stand out is passive chipset cooling that really seems to work and an in-built fan controller.  Read the whole review to get an idea at ABIT's strategy for returning to enthusiast boards.


"The first step in Abit's bid to reclaim the enthusiast market could be the AN8 32X, a Socket 939

Athlon 64 motherboard based on NVIDIA's nForce4 SLI X16 chipset. One of only three X16

motherboards available for sale, the AN8 32X doesn't mess around with cheesy gimmicks or Fatal1ty

branding. Instead, it's equipped with useful peripherals, passive chipset cooling, loads of

overclocking potential, and best-in-class fan speed control and hardware monitoring. But is all

that enough to keep up with the latest enthusiast-oriented motherboards from Asus, DFI, ECS, and

MSI? Read on to find out."
