You can also set up quick dials for up to five users and another five groups. Apart from this there’s a USB port on the right hand side of the microGuru clock and three buttons on the front. The right button can power your PC on and off, the middle one enables you to browse through the various options and the left hand side one is a ‘select’ button.
Opening the box you’re greeted by one IDE and one floppy cable as well as six SATA cables, an SLI bridge as well as a support that holds it in place during transit.
So what about performance? Well, I have no complaints here as the NI8 SLI scored some very good numbers across the board beating the MSI P4N Diamond in just about every test. Considering that the NI8 SLI comes in at a very reasonable price point some of the minor issues of the board can be overlooked.
It may not be the best featured board on the market but taking everything into account, the ABIT NI8 SLI is good value for money. If you pair it up with a low noise CPU cooler and a couple of the quieter SLI cards you could have yourself a high-end gaming rig that doesn’t sound like an aeroplane.
