Your best bet is to buy a PCI Firewire card unless you can verify that the chipset zsus for the onboard controller is qualified by Digidesign. Other devices such as motherboard chipsets have flirted with extravagant cooling solutions in the past, but in reality this was not really very necessarily until recently.
Asus A8N-SLI Premium Athlon64 Motherboard Review –
Of course if you’re only running a single videocard, no additional power is required for smooth operation. My qualms lie with high bandwidth devices running through the PCI bus specifically.
ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe – motherboard – ATX – Socket 939 – nForce4 SLI Series
Looking into getting this board, but noticed it doesn’t have onboard firewire. At first glance the feature set of the Asus A8N-SLI Premium is quite impressive, however upon closer inspection, it looks like Asus was trying more to meet a a8h check list”.
This does not occur if I use the PCI board fitted to provide 3x connectors sorry, don’t know the make of this board!! Send a private message to Third Eye Studios.
Finally Available: Nine Socket 939 Athlon64 Motherboards!
Anyone got good results from Asus M2N Motherboard. Third Eye Studios Member. Find all posts by Larry Younkins. I’m sure it’ll be worth it. Might this be a feature of using on-board connectors Given that northbridge and MOSFETs are now both cooled by a relatively small section of heatsink fins, if a88n or a phase change system is used on the processor, PCSTATS highly recommends that a fan be set up to sl airflow over the heatpipe heatsink.

What this does is allow larger third party cooling solutions to be installed on the videocards, or even a water cooling apparatus. To help the motherboard deal with the additional load, 139 has also placed a dedicated molex connector just above the first PCI Express slot. I have noticed while trying to trace the error of escalating cpu usage while using DVerb It’s running great for me so far I’ve only had it a couple of weeks.
The general rule in computers is that as things get faster, more heat is produced. Any thoughts on this? Asuw times are GMT After years of complaining about bad component locations it seems like motherboard manufacturers are finally starting to listen!

While its motherboards have performed well and are full of features, there has been grumblings about the heatsink Asus selected for its nForce4 ssli. I’ll be pulling the trigger soon.
One word of warning however. While the technology being applied here is nothing new, it does remove one fan from the motherboard system, and that goes a little way towards reducing the overall noise signature of a PC.
