Default Asus a8n sli premium. need advice

I'll be ordering the Asus a8n sli premium next week. Its the one with the chipset heatpipe cooler.

Does anyone here have any experience with this board? All the reviews I've read seem good, but I thought I should get some first hand opinions.

I was getting this board. I researched for ages and everyone in the universe says this it is the best SLi motherboard to go for in every way, you may want to look at this review: http://www.tomshardware.com/motherbo...531/index.html. I found that really helpful.

I must add that in the end i didn't actually get one as it's a very very expensive board, too expensive for me as i would likely never have enough cash to use the SLi feature. Instead i got an Asus A8N-E. (http://www.microdirect.co.uk/Product...91&GroupID=526)
This board is exactly the same i believe just minus SLi and Firewire. It saved me something like 70 which i put towards a better CPU and GPU. I don't know how much cash you have but if you're not likely to use SLi i'd seriously consider this board, it's awesome.

If you're minted, get the Premium, it's renouned for it's obsene power!

Good luck!
