    This has been in the pipeline ever since the 'revival'.

    Sad to see them go, again, but at least they're going to honour RMA requests.

    It's a shame but they haven't really been at the top of their game since the NF7-S days.

    *quick, download drivers*

    my Abit iP35 Pro have the best BIOS i've very worked with. beating Asus P5K-e and Gigabyte x38-DQ6. i was waiting for Abit iP45 Pro to upgrade to :( looks like i'll keep this motherboard until upgrading sockets.

    are there any other company that have 6 fan headers and have as good fan configuration as Abit uGuru?? i mean lower temp limit, higher temp limit, lower voltage, higher voltage are all adjustable.

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo,

    I have always used Abit boards, and while a couple of them have had problems, those were very quickly sorted.
    They have not been the same since they went backrupt 2 years ago.
    If someone else does pickup the name, they better know what they are doing as the brand does have a great reputation.

    IC7 users ho!

    Rather sad news. I rather liked the ABit boards, and their Airpace Wi-Fi card is fantastic!

    What a shame - they really did produce some of the most fantastic boards.

    No-one will forget the BP6, and (for me at least) the NF7s line will forever have a fond spot - I had about 4 of them over a couple of years, and they were all excellent.

    Shame really. Just recently bought the Airpace WiFi controller... just another amazing piece of hardware by them.

    :( sad to see them go, the Abit iP35 has been a rock solid board for myself and friends (and of cause many others on here), shame to see them go.
    I am glad to see that they will still honor the RMA requests for the next 3 years, so not a total blow out.


    [OT] My current asus board has 8 fan headers, however asus dont supply software to limit voltages and speeds, only able to monitor them, of cause can use speedfan to make adjustments. [/OT]
