That was a great review. Any Gigabyte review is a good review.. :lol:
(Its no secret i like em)

Seriously though, a score of 82, not too shabby at all!

Front Side Bus | 800MHz HyperTransport Bus Link


quick question?

I thought the NF4 used a 1000MHz HT? Or is that based entirely on the manufacturer?

The 4x in the GA-K8NF-9 stands for 4x HT speed 800 MHz in this case. Normal nForce4s, Ultras, SLIs do 1000 MHz. It shouldn't make a big diff in performance though (I haven't seen enough nForce4 boards to make a determination)
