Chaintech ZNF3-150 ZENITH Motherboard Review

Former staff writer    -   March 3, 2004


Conclusion
Well, even though I haven't seen the ZNF3-150 ran at it's fullest capability yet, I certainly can't complain with what I have seen. I am extremely eager to see what this baby can do when matched up against another nForce 3 or VIA motherboard.

The bundle of things that came with this mother board was amazing. Chaintech sure went out of their way to make sure that you had just about everything you needed to get up and running. Though the software bundle could use a tad bit of work. Maybe some game demos. ;)

The are only two things that I was unhappy with. The first Chaintech is working on fixing, and that would be the overclocking issues related to the BIOS. The other would be the placement of the north bridge.
