Chaintech Zenith 7NJS nForce2 Review - Conclusion

The original nForce chipset from nVidia did not turn out to be much of a success for the then new player in the chipset sector. nVidia have since learned from their mistakes and given us the nForce2 dual channel DDR-333 and DDR-400 chipset for the AMD Athlon platform. Today Cameron "Sov" Johnson gives us a full run down on Chaintech's feature-packed Zenith 7NJS nForce2 based motherboard. Have nVidia really learned from their mistakes? Read on and find out!

Conclusion

 

Well all I can say is Wow! The nForce2 delivers all that is said it would, and with a company like Chaintech behind the wheels of this motherboard, it didn't disappoint in its performance.

 

While we had a few gripes with the board layout and somewhat at odds with the left out features we did find the board to be a perfect performer and excellent overclocker. With Vcore voltages up to 2.1v and DDR SDRAM voltages of 3.2v with multiplier, AGP divider and PCI divider changes all available in BIOS, you will find it hard to get a better nForce2 board to date.

 

In all honesty, this board is the best AMD solution we have seen to date!

 

Pros

 

- Fast

 

- Overclockable

 

- Firewire

 

- Serial ATA

 

Cons

 

- Placement of Power and FDD connector required more thought

 

- Use of C-Media sound over Dolby onboard sound

 

- Second integrated NIC disabled
