Our latest release, an evaluation and performance review of EVGA’s nForce 7901 SLI FTW motherboard, with Digital PWM is now live for all to enjoy.


This is definitely one special board that has a lot to offer. For starters, it sports three PCI Express x16 slots for 3-way SLI, and it boasts support for up to nine SATA 3Gbps drives. Additionally, the mainboard supports 2,000MHz dual channel DDR3 with EPP and a front side bus up to 1,600MHz. The board was designed with enthusiasts in mind though, so you can rest assured that EVGA also includes a plethora of overclocking options in the BIOS. Continuing the trend, EVGA appeals to enthusiasts even further by offering a digital PWM circuit, an 8-phase power design, VDroop control, 100% solid state capacitors, and onboard clear CMOS, power and reset buttons.

Hey nice looking board. That BT2 board hates me so this is tempting.

It really is a great board. I have had no issues at all with it.

I own 3 EVGA 790i motherboards, one of each type they made.

A. 790i Ultra SLI

B. 790i Ultimate FTW

C. 790i Ultimate FTW Digital PWM

Presently these motherboards continue to keep up with all of the latest software out on the market. We use ours for a lot of online gaming and we have yet to find a game they cannot handle when the game is using all of the highest settings. Of course we also are running a minimum of dual SLI GPU's and ocassionally bump up to quad SLI.

All of the mother boards overclock well including FSB, CPU, Memory, NB/SB ect.They may be around 4 to 5 years old now but still running STRONG.
