It's interesting in this industry what's been going on recently with Soltek motherboards available in the United States. Soltek USA, their nominal branch in the United States has recently stopped selling Soltek boards in the U.S.A as it was run by a company and not by Soltek themselves, this had the interesting effect of causing a shortage of Soltek motherboards in the U.S..

That doesn't mean, however, that Soltek boards aren't available. Soltek boards are sold by many distributors in the U.S., including Misr Corporation, who provided this review board. You can purchase this board from them at this website.

Soltek has been making motherboards since 1996. They are pretty popular with overclockers in the United States and for the most part, are decent boards for the everyday user. One good thing about their boards is that they always come with a great bundle and retail for a very reasonable price, often coming in at $50 less than their competition.

The board being reviewed here is the Soltek SL75-MRN-L board. This board is similar to the SL75-FRN-L review which is here, with the addition of an integrated GEFORCE 4 MX core. It's going to be an interesting review, so let's see what's cooking.
