AN8-Sli Premium or the AN8-32Deluxe - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Frankly both Asus and DFI rock! If you get either your in great shape. If your a little green in the OC field, than go with Asus because it is a little more user friendly. If you know what you are doing get the DFI. The DFI has a lot more options in the BIOS and even I don't know what they all do and I have been messing with computers for 15 years. It isn't uncommon for an Asus board to get the same OC's as the DFI.

He is right! Not all ram even works that great with higher voltages. You need to check out what your ram can adequately handle for power.

I just bought an A8N-32 SLI deluxe and I sure do like it. the bios is unreal. the drivers install very nice and reboots its self and keeps loading drivers. I did update the bios as soon as I could. I took out the A8N-SLI deluxe and have to rma it to ASUS (I know... I am not looking forward to this ). I have not owned a DFI but reading through the different forums it seems that the DFI is a very good mobo and everyone I have talked to says it is very picky on drivers. and pretty easy to get yourself into trouble IF you dont know exactly what your doing.

I know most dont but for extreme OC'ing you need at least 3.2V for certain RAM sets, the A8N32 goes to 3.1V

I need better RAM to get higher and a better board, the DFI boards are cheaper and can OC better (with more options) than the A8N32.

Passive cooling is fine but a fan can do just as well and eventually I'll get everything on water but if you want ot OC then save some cash and get a DFI

If you want either board, get the A8N32 because it has more OC'ing options
