ASUS A8N NFORCE4 DRIVER

Asus says that this is required for “stable SLI operation”, but the other 3 SLI designs do fine and are quite stable without the 5th power connector. Add to this below-average overclocking abilities and the problems experienced with our Ultra cards on just the Asus board, and it is hard to get too excited about this particular Asus board. Perhaps there is another Asus SLI in the works that will do a better job at bringing high-end features to Asus nForce4. It is bad enough that two top-end video cards require 4 Molex connectors to power them, but on the Asus board you also have to connect another 4-pin Molex for additional video card power. The feature set on the Asus is just average in this roundup.

As you will see later in our overclocking test, however, this capability is basically wasted, since this Asus is not a particularly good overclocker.
