I'm in no way provoking a flame but I recieved my Abit AN8 today and I noticed right on the front it says "100% Japanese capacitors for best performance."
These are the same beautiful Rubycon capacitors that are found on DFI boards.
Once the RAM comes in I'm gonna take a stab at some killer OCing. (OCZ or g.skill)
If you can find something else that makes these boards completley different I'm all ears.
No, I still cant explain why I'm not partial to DFI, sorry.
