    I ordered a refurbished A7N8X from newegg a little while ago, and it came with absolutely nothing in terms of documentation. My order history from newegg tells me this:

    13-131-455R MB NFORCE2 A7N8X-UAY 400Mhz ASUS RT


    Although from this information I'm still not sure which of these mobo's it is (my only options at Asus):

    nVidia nForce2-ST A7N8X Deluxe
    nVidia nForce2-S A7N8X
    nVidia nForce2-400 A7N8X-X
    nVidia nForce2 IGP A7N8X-VM


    Here is what Aida32 has to say:

    Motherboard Properties
    Motherboard ID 10/06/2003-nVidia-nForce-A7N8X2.0C-00
    Motherboard Name Asus A7N8X v2.0

    Front Side Bus Properties
    Bus Type DEC Alpha EV6
    Bus Width 64-bit
    Real Clock 133 MHz (DDR)
    Effective Clock 267 MHz
    Bandwidth 2133 MB/s

    Chipset Bus Properties
    Bus Type HyperTransport v1.0
    Bus Width 8-bit

    Motherboard Physical Info
    CPU Sockets/Slots 1
    Expansion Slots 5 PCI, 1 AGP Pro
    RAM Slots 3 DIMM
    Form Factor ATX
    Motherboard Size 240 mm x 300 mm
    Motherboard Chipset nForce2-U400
    Extra Features Q-Fan, CPU Overheating Protection

    Sigh, basically I want to know what the maximum memory and cpu this sucker can take (i'm looking at a 3000 barton with a 400FSB)

    I dont know if the 400 in the order history corresponds with the FSB or with a ram max ddr3200 @400

    Any help would be appreciated. A link to this mobo's proper specs page would be awesome

    Yeah teddy that might be it! It has the same category ID as in my order history too.. I dont think its the deluxe model however...I dont think mine has raid or the soundstorm or sata...

    So I guess its just a standard A7N8X, but the good news is I can get that 3000 barton with 400fsb =)

    Good job teddy, I didnt think to look up that id on newegg.
