Gigabyte 7NNXP BEST NFORCE2 400FSB mobo????

Hay has anyone seen official reviews of this board... it looks pretty tite.

it has dual onbaord pata raid controllers 133/100/66

a sata raid controllor (also onboard)

its the only nforce2 board i've seen that has 4 dimm slots for memory (with dual channel support )

and it also has some sort of power supply onboard or something... i don't know what it does really... but I would like to see how this board overclocks.... as i currently have a gigabyte board and i can't get it past 142 fsb


here is the manufacturer link

http://www.giga-byte.com/MotherBoard...s_GA-7NNXP.htm

thanks guys... i read somewhere that there were two pata raid controllers... might be only one..

The power thing is a 6phase system called DPS, thyeve used it on some P4 boards

looks good that it has 4 dimm lsots DCDDR that would be handy

Very first post and I'm going to try to help out. Just bought the 7N400pro last night and while talking to the tech at the shop they said the expanded onboard PS(on the 7NNXP) does nothing. They said it did not help overclocking at all because that is the first thing they tried when they go the new board in. They also ran a ton of benchmarks and said there was no apparent increase in performance. Now if I could just figure out why mine will not run in dual ddr mode? LOL

The only review i've seen on it said they got 240mhz dual channel out of the box. I'm not sure if it has adjustable vdd though, which is important to me. The features look great and the 6-phase power basically means that it will handle higher voltages then most boards with ease (*theoretically, actual results might be different)
