A READER informs us that Overclockers.co.uk has started accepting AM2 Nforce 5 pre orders for Abit boards. These should arrive by the 23rd of May 2006. The three models available will start from Â£79.95+VAT. They are the KN9S, the KN9 Ultra and the KN9SLI. They support DDR2 memory, have onboard ALC883 HD Audio, Nvidia GbE - other differencing factors include Dual GbE, Firewire, SLI support and more SATA ports. One or two stuffs worth noting; there's a heatpipe passive cooler on top of the chipset and a massive heatsink covering the south bridge it seems.
