    Hi all.......

    I have an A8N SLI Deluxe board. I bought this board when I was a computer enthusiast.....but now the comp is in my office.

    Unfortunately the board gets into chipset fan trouble evry 3-4 months. The comp is main server and 5 clients are attached to it. Its really a big problem disconnecting the comp and taking it to the vendor and getting the fan changed very 3-4 months. I have talked to my vendor and he is ready to exchange it for another board.


    I bought this board around Jan 2005 and except for the fan the board is a baby

    My questions are

    1 Should I sell this board and get a new one

    2 If the answer to 1 Is yes then what price should I expect from my
    vendor

    3 Last but not the least, if i do sell this board which board should i
    get. I need a no frill but High Performance board which should
    come within the sale proceeds of the SLI (Maybe a little extra)

    4 I am from chandigarh and if anyone of u is interested in buying
    this board do pm me

    Hope u will sort my confusion out

    The early editions of the board did have issues with the northbridge fan. I suggest you get Asus to replace the board. If it dosen't work out you could sell it and get a Asus A8N-E which is basically the same board minus the SLI.
    As far as buying from you is concerned, why would anyone buy a motherboard they know is defective?
