i heard on Xtremesystems that theyve thoght it was great and it was stable and great for overclocking. but then ppl who had bought the Asus 32 sli tried out the DFI Lanparty UT SLI-DR expert, and stuck with the DFI.

i think DFI Sli-DR expert is slightly better than the ASUS a32.

but both will suit u fine.

get the asus a32 if u want. or take a look at the DFI.

watever ur decision, the asus is awesome either way.

If you are overclocking very far, get DFI.

If you are not, get the ASUS.

It's a great motherboard. Has excellent OCin' ability. 16X SLI is nice but not what it should be. Has more then enough useful features. Solid and Stable. Dual Core ready...

Too expensive $250 - $300 USD
Not as fast as DFI Lan Party or ASUS A8N-SLI Premium.

I've been looking at benchmarks for the A8N32, and I am not overly impressed. The 16X SLi makes such a marginal difference, that I dont think its worth it. Overall IMO, it costs waaay more than what it is worth. If you are looking for an overclocking board, go for a DFI LP mobo.

If you arent overclocking, just go with MSI, ASUS (A8N-Premium), Gigabyte, all of which are close to half the price of the A8N32.
