Asus A8N SLI Premium or DFI NF4 SLI-DR? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
i have the same RAM as you and my DFI boards hates it witha passion. When you upgrade your RAM and you get the DFI try to stay away from the corsair as the generally dont mix well with DFI. I dunno why for sure but alot of people have had the same probs.

I have the Asus A8N-SLI Premium and it is a good board, though not as overclockable as the SLI-DR (which I will be getting soon).

From the case you specify in your sig, the board will be oriented properly so you won't have to worry about the chipset increasing 1 to 2 degrees over norm.

I do recommend that you have a fan blowing over the chipset and mosfets seeing as you are going to be using a TEC to cool the CPU with. Even though I have a crossflow fan in my CM Stacker that keeps air flowing over the entire board, I installed a 120mm generic fan over the mosfets because they were getting hotter than normal at anything over stock voltage. Of course, I am running a Clawhammer 4000+ which runs at 1.5 volts stock so that could be the reason why.

If you have a 20+4 PSU, I would not recommend running the Asus with it. From my testing (using various 20pin PSUs, including a PCP&C 510- original not the newer ones) the A8N-SLI Premium does not run too well, if at all, using 20 pin PSUs. Get a PSU that does meet the power requirements of the board, if you do not already have one.
