Bleh. I did a search and no one posted about this yet... I haven't gathered enough information to make an "official jetway thread" yet, but I'm looking to hear about any user experiences with this board.

From reading a few reviews this board's right up there in the top ranks with overclocking. As for reliability? No clue. Longevity? Well jetway's a newcomer so we'll have to see.

But hey, Their $85 nforce4 board supports both 939 and 754.

Excuse the box picture on newegg, apparently it's the wrong shot (it shows a picture of an ATI board).

Their SLI Board? 3 PCIe slots. Once sound cards start using PCIe slots (....maybe in the future when Creative stops monopolizing the sound card industry so other companies can innovate), you can use SLI as well as a PCIe sound card if those ever come out.

Damn. SLI plus a monster overclocker for an unbeatable price.

Layout is excellent, slots are spaced out, connectors seem to be in a very ideal position. I can't really complain too much about this layout.

Anyone have any experiences? I'm not really looking to purchase this board (I've already got a good machine now :D) - I'm just looking to update my guide.

Edit: Just to clarify, that board looks like a DFI (yellow slots) mixed with an ABIT (red PCB). The layout looks similar to the eVGA. Well, Jetway's the one that makes EVGA boards.

Hmm, upon closer inspection:
No firewall and the possibility of a loud fan are probably the two biggest downsides to this board.
