Today we are looking at the ultimate enthusiast mainboard from XFX running the new NVIDIA 790i Ultra chipset. This board brings DDR3 compatibility to NVIDIA chipsets.

If you are looking for a new mainboard to build your ultimate gaming machine on, the XFX 790i Ultra is the board you want. In addition to supporting ESA it also supports Intel CPUs with FSB speeds up to 1600MHz.

Review excerpt: “There are lots of fan headers built into the mainboard, but only four USB headers. This is perplexing since each ESA component you use in a system requires a USB header to communicate with the mainboard. In my case I used the ESA liquid cooling system and an ESA certified PSU leaving me with only one internal USB header. Had I used an ESA chassis I would have had no usable internal headers left.” Read the full XFX 790i Ultra mainboard review here.
