“The K8-NF41 is EVGA’s latest motherboard for the Athlon 64 socket 939 line of processors. The motherboard was designed around the NVIDIA nForce4 SLI chipset, with built-in support for the entire Athlon 64 socket 939 processor line, DDR type SDRAM modules operating in Dual Channel mode up to speeds of 400 MHz officially, and PCI Express x16-based video cards operating in single card or dual card SLI mode. The K8-NF4 motherboard is a feature complete solution, and it only requires the following components for a functional system: Athlon 64 socket 939-based CPU, DDR memory, PCI Express video card, drives, and PSU. EVGA chose to included the following integrated into the K8-NF41’s design: 2 IDE ATA-133 ports and 4 SATA II ports (RAID 0, 1, and 0+1 capable) on the NVIDIA RAID controller; 10 USB 2.0 capable ports (4 in rear panel, and 3 onboard headers supporting 2 ports each); 1 NVIDIA Gigabit Ethernet port in rear panel with integrated hardware Firewall support; Realtek 8-channel audio codec featuring S/PDIF optical and component output ports; 2-digit diagnostic LED; onboard power and reset button; and PS/2, serial, and parallel port support in the rear panel.”
