Just curious who you all think is the best motherboard maker for AMD socket 939 cpus with PCIexpress. I personally like the MSI boards, but abit is good too. Sorry if i didnt add a board maker that you like to the poll.

My next board will be the A8N-SLI. Probably Deluxe, depending on what my wife will [ahem] allow me to spend. :)

I don't recall the last ASUS board I've encountered that I've had issues with.

SC64

If you are a serious OC'er, the DFI board is the best.

ASUS and MSI are good. Gigabyte and Abit are okay to an extent.

id have to say MSI from reading everything. their k8n neo line is amazing, both the nforce3 and nforce4 versions kicked ass.

It's obvious that MSI's repeating the same performance from nForce3.

Hell no! They put up a very good show (arguably the best) for their nForce3 s939 line. Why not do the same for nForce4? :)

totally agreed, the 2 companies i am looking at the most for my next build are definitely MSI and DFI, im leaning DFI now, but i trust MSI more since they are tier 1. the only reason im leaning DFI is because i know its compatible with the xp-120 whereas the Thermalright list says MSI isnt, but i have been told peopla have goten it to fit.

Soyo!

Haha, I jest, I jest. MSI has clearly made a smooth transition from nF3 to nF4. It's hard to make an argument against them.
