Experience: 1 Years


Seems to work well but am working with Asus to resolve issues
On Board Sound, On Board Ethernet?
Not very good on board sound had to purchase separate sound card. Now have trouble with both Ethernet connections as per investigation of internet supplier and hooking up my old system which download speeds are great. Will have to send this back to Asus.

Experience: 3 Days


Lots of extras on this mobo
fit in my case well
Loogs great
SLI ports are far apart for good cooling
None yet!
I put this in my new rig and it is making puting it together much easyer than last time all the ports are in good places and the EZ Plug tm Let my power my rear fans without having to run cabled there from the psu:)

Experience: 3 Days


External SATA 2 connections
Dual Gigabit LAN & AI NET2
None for a Socket 939 board
Well maybe 1394a
This board, at its sale price, is a fantastic value if you want a socket 939 motherboard. Dual RAID and Dual Gigabit LAN. Comes with a mini board to enable you to externally connect 2 SATA II hard drives. Also has 8-channel Audio.

Experience: 3 Days


Nice and Flashy
Easily removable CPU Heatsink mount for aftermarket addons
External SATA extender included($60 retail value)
Front panel audio jack plug is at very back of the motherboard
RAM clips can be hard to open when you have a PCI card in the first slot
Board performs pretty good. POST seems a bit slower compared to my older board. Had some serious SATA problems with my 250GB DiamondMax Maxtor, but that might've been the hard drive..not sure. Bought this motherboard as a replacement to one that my PSU fried.

Experience: 1 Years


-fully loaded, stable, very overclockable
-Best quality for the price
-Organized slot location
-Not quiete up to par with DFI ultra boards in the overclocking department
-Anoying BIOS Silicon RAID bootup screen that is not able to be disabled(lasts about 8 seconds on PC boot)
Great quality, great functionability, and very overclockable. All around, great board for anyone looking for a stable, quiete, and tweakable PC

Experience: 1 Years


SLI which makes it upgradable. Socket 939 which can support dual core.
South bridge fan spins at 8000rpm and dies constantly
I love this mobo but its definatly got a few flaws. The first being its south bridge fan. I dont know if they fixed it on this model as i have one of the earlier asus SLI mobos. The board is great for overclocking and supported my 2 gb of kingston ram with no problem. I've even run a primary SATA drive with a secondary IDE which i found to be really hard using other mobos for some reason. I've had a really really stable system using this mobo and it was a great upgrade from the ASrock had before it. I would recommend this mobo for a mid-range price system with great options for proc and graphics cards since it supports 2 PCI-E cards. Great mobo overall, definatly stick to ASUS.

Experience: 1 Years


stable, overclocks well. My Opteron 165 can go up to 2.65G
chipset fan is not quiet.
Overall, I would suggest this motherboard if you are a overclocking fan and not care too much about the noise.

Experience: 9 Months


very stable, has everything I need.
haven't found any yet
This is my first ASUS board, love the features, seems to do everything I need, no complaints yet. My next board will probably be an AM2 or AM3 board, based on my experience so far I'll stick with ASUS. Good mobo.

Experience: 56 Days


excellent reliable and storng performances, will buy again definatily. Best price for this board
zero so far
Other than the problems with the fan it is working great for me. I didnt have any of the issues some people seemed to have with getting raid to work. However I wouldnt purchase it again, there were way too many complaints about the fan on the asus forum. I would rather buy a board that doesnt have known issuses.
excellent reliable and storng performances, will buy again definatily.

sfeas t
Experience: 32 Days


excellent overall... too many features and details to list. highly recommanded
no compliants
enough of the negatives. This is a great board. WAY better than the previous ASUS boards that i owned. Do yourself a favour though and hook up your case audio prior to installing the board because it is very tight and tedious to connect. over clocking is great. Have fun with this board.

Are you game enough?
Representing motherboard engineering at its best, the performance of A8N-SLI Deluxe is not for the faint of heart. The NVIDIA® SLI ™ (Scalable Link Interface) technology enables two PCI-Express cards on this motherboard to provide extreme performance over the edge. Enjoy the latest games with most visual effects; go ahead with the most graphics demanding multimedia utilities. Don't worry, this mobo is good enough for you, the question is, are you game enough for A8N-SLI.

Supports AMD Socket 939 Athlon 64FX/Athlon 64
A8N-SLI supports AMD 939-pin Athlon 64 FX/ Athlon 64 processors with 1MB/512KB L2 cache which is based on 64-bit architecture. It features 2000/1600 MT/s HyperTransport Bus and dual-channel un-buffered DDR400 memory support.

NVIDIA® SLI ™ technology revolutionizes PC performance by combining multiple PCI Express GPUs in a single and scalable system! Gamers and hardcore enthusiasts know that dual GPUs mean increased, supercharged 3D graphics and performance.

PCI Express Architecture
PCI Express is the latest I/O interconnect technology that will replace the existing PCI. With a bus bandwidth 4 times higher than that of AGP 8X interface, PCI Express x16 bus performs much better in applications such as 3D gaming. The PCI Express x1 interface creates new usages on desktop PCs e.g., TV tuner, 1394b, and high-speed RAID systems.

SATA 3Gb/s
A8N-SLI supports next-generation SATA hard drives based on the new SATA 3Gb/s storage specification. Furthermore, the chipset has two dedicated SATA controllers delivering more scalable performance and doubles the bus bandwidth for fast hard drive data retrieval and saves.

The nForce4 chipset incorporated four Serial ATA and two parallel connectors with high performance RAID functions in RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1 and JBOD. The Silicon Image controller provides another four Serial ATA connectors for RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10, and RAID 5 functions. The A8N-SLI Deluxe is the ideal solution to enhance hard disk performance and data back up protection without the cost of add-on cards.

Dual Gigabit LAN & AI NET2
The integrated dual Gigabit LAN design allows a PC to serve as a network gateway for managing traffic between two separate networks. This capability ensures rapid transfer of data from WAN to LAN without any added arbitration or latency.
ASUS AI NET2 remotely detects cable connection the second you turn on the system, and any faulty connections are reported back up to 100 meters at 1 meter accuracy.

NV Firewall
NV ActiveArmor enhances network security while delivers the highest system performance by offloading CPU-intensive packet filtering tasks in hardware. NV Firewall provides professional-grade traffic inspection capabilities, instanton protection, advanced management features and is easy to use and setup via a user friendly wizard.

Boost performance when you need it the most!
Applications such as 3D games and video editing demand a huge chunk of system resource.
Inject "nitrous oxide" into your CPU! The patented AI NOS™ (Non-delay Overclocking System) technology intelligently detects system load and automatically boosts performance for the most demanding tasks. Unlike other dynamic overclocking techniques, AI NOS™ reacts much faster to satisfy your unending need for speeds.

AI Audio (8-channel Audio)
A8N-SLI has eight channels of audio output with Coaxial and optical S/PDIF connector designed to maximize your auditory experience. AI Audio also provides "Jack Sensing" and "UAJ" functions. "Jack Sensing" automatically detects and notifies user of any inappropriate connection. "UAJ" function enables both input and output functions each jacks, thus eliminates the confusion of Line-in, Line-out and Mic jacks once and for all!

ASUS Q-Fan technology intelligently adjusts both CPU fan and chassis fan speeds according to system loading to ensure quiet, cool and efficient operation.

IEEE 1394 interface
IEEE 1394 interface provides high speed digital interface for audio/video appliances such as digital television, digital video camcorders, storage peripherals & other PC portable devices.

Max. 10 USB 2.0 ports supports
USB 2.0 is the latest connectivity standard for next generation components and peripherals.
Backwards compatible with current USB 1.1 peripherals, USB 2.0 delivers transfer speeds up to 40 times faster at 480Mb/s, for easy connectivity and ultra-fast data transfers.

Multi-language BIOS
The multi-language BIOS allows you to select the language of your choice from the available options. The localized BIOS setup menu helps you configure your system easier and faster.

ASUS CrashFree BIOS2
The CrashFree BIOS2 feature now includes the BIOS auto-recovery function in a support CD.
Users can reboot their system through the support CD when a bootable disk is not available,
and go through the simple BIOS auto-recovery process.
ASUS motherboards now enable users to enjoy this protection feature without the need to pay for an optional ROM.

S/PDIF-out on Back I/O Port
This motherboard provides convenient connectivity to external home theater audio systems via an optical or coaxial S/PDIF-out (SONY-PHILIPS Digital Interface) jack. It allows to transfer digital audio without converting to analog format and keeps the best signal quality.
