Building a “kick ass” PC isn’t too hard, so long as you’re selective in what you pick up and aren’t afraid of a little free tweaking to get it running smooth. Also, I noticed my question concerning the SATA port multiplier compatability never realy got answered fully ; However, I DO realize that you guys are probably very busy: Now you can use not only the Internet but also host your own game server, web server or even set up an additional LAN or home network; all on one PC without the need for extra add-in cards.
Considering the power supply is usually above the CPU socket, that means users may have to dedicate one line just to reach that spot. Dedicated fan control Keep control over your hardware.
Review: abit AW9D Max – Mainboard – – Page 3
After all, who’s more likely to upgrade to bleeding edge technology than a gamer in search of sugar sweet eye candy?
Rather, if you’re a gamer and are looking for absolute gaming performance the Intel X Express method of splitting the PCI Express x16 bus is a lot more attractive and should provide better results. Some of the port placements are a little odd too. They are also a bit higher quality than the electrolytic variety, which should improve stability extend the motherboard lifespan.
After using the board for close to a week and installing it in several cases we have to say it has started to grow on us.
In addition there are plenty of Solid state capacitors around the high frequency CPU ensure a sufficient and stable power supply. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.

Log in Don’t have an account? Okay so gaming oriented gear is in the spotlight, but you’ve still got to do your homework and be careful to ignore all the marketing hype. There are no less than eight fan headers on this board.
If you have a question about pin layouts or Port 80 error codes, just refer to the User’s Manual and it will guide the way.
Special copper strips designed to spread heat away from key components Purpose: Solid state capacitors are more reliable, and will not burst, pop, or leak electrolyte years down the road. The board features an excellent four-phase power regulation system, all solid aluminium electrolytic polymer capacitors, silent OTES 2 passive cooling system, and seven fan headers under the control of the Abiit EQ program.
Features and Layout Click to enlarge Abit designed a board that you will either love or hate. This board can be looked at as being a little ahead of its time or an experiment gone badly. In a effort to stimulate a stalled motherboard market, it’s not surprising that we have been seeing a lot of gamer oriented hardware hitting the streets.
Overall, the new color scheme gives the board a very clean yet menacing look worthy of the MAX designation.
Beginners Guides Cases and Access. The latter has made huge inroads recently, but if you’re stubborn and feel that “Intel processors go best with Intel chipsets,” that’s okay too. Maybe in the end we just realized that the performance potential of the board merited an overlook of some design shortcomings. Most hardware enthusiasts go over board on their computer, whether it’s necessary or not. If nothing else this board will elicit an hours worth of conversation about the art of layout design along with providing options the customer wants at this time like an additional PCI slot.
Although our board is production based, the color scheme is not. The Intel P Express chipset is a great value, but the way that chipset does CrossFire is far from desirable.
