FEATURES- nVIDIA nForce 4 Ultra Socket 939 Motherboard

The A8N-E has a no nonsense, all performance attitude. This

motherboard is designed to take in AMD Socket 939 CPUs, PCI Express

graphics cards SATA 2.0 devices, and dual-channel memories. On top

of all these, ASUS has also offered AI NOS and Precision Tweaker

for the users to crank up performance even more! If words like

speed and power are relevant to you, then look no further, here it

is - A8N-E.

Includes motherboard, (2) Ultra DMA 133/100/66 cables, IDE cable, FDD

cable, COM cable, 2-port USB2.0/Game module, 2-port USB2.0 USB module,

(4) SATA power cables, (2) 2-port SATA power cables.
* 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 nForce4 Ultra

NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra deliver unmatched PC security and unbelievable PC

performance. Get it all: PCI Express for AMD platforms and cutting-edge

features including SATA 3Gb/s and NVIDIA nForce Security -- protection

from spyware and hackers. NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ensure maximum PC

performance while futureproofing your PC for demands of tomorrow.
* 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.
* Precision Tweaker

Precision Tweaker is designed for serious overclockers. It offers ways

to raise system performance inch-by-inch and step-by-step to achieve

maximum performance! This is about getting the most out of your machine,

and taking pride in your customized computer. Precision Tweaker provides

overclocking options for all major parts of the system: CPU, Memory,

PCI-Express, and Front Side Bus.


Take control of how much power is going into the memory modules. ASUS

gives you 9-step voltage control to the DIMM.

- vCore

Find out "exactly" how much power your CPU needs. Fine-tune it with

0.0125 volts at a time!

- PCI-Express Frequency

Explore the frequency options of your PCI-Express graphics card.


SFS (Stepless Frequency Selection) allow FSB tuning from 200MHz up to

400MHz at 1MHz increments.

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.
* PEG Link

PEG (PCI-Express Graphics) Link lets you to raise GPU and VGA memory

throughput via the motherboard BIOS the same way system bus and memory

bus are tweaked. ASUS engineers carefully fine-tuned the parameters for

PCI-Express cards to provide system stability during high-speed graphics

operation. Furthermore, with two PCI-Express slots, the A8N-E is able to

activate PEG Link on both graphics.

Diagnose LAN connection before entering OS! Network problems are often

caused by bad cable connection. 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.
* 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

* ASUS Q-Fan

ASUS Q-Fan technology intelligently adjusts both CPU fan and chassis fan

speeds according to system loading to ensure quiet, cool and efficient

* Universal PCI-E Slot

The ASUS Universal PCI-E Slot gives the users freedom and flexibility on

the utilization of the PCI-E interface. With Universal PCI-E Slot, user

is able to plug in an additional PCI-E graphics card to have dual VGA on

a single motherboard! This special design supports up to 1GB/s in

bandwidth, and it will also take in most of the PCI-E devices out there!
* 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.
