Gigabyte continues to up the ante by packing more onto a motherboard than was thought possible.The GA-K8N Ultra-SLI won’t disappoint but nothing is ever perfect and there is room for minor improvements.

The Gigabyte dual channel memory system has channels A and B side by side.

(Channel A is DIMM 1 and 3 and channel B is DIMM 2 and 4.) This results in a very tight space for heatspreader equipped memory.

If there are four SATA 150 headers then Gigabyte includes a cable for each.

The GA-K8N Ultra-SLI has SATA 300 headers and there’s four of them so four SATA 300 cables are included as well.

The manual provides extensive information but it does require a careful read in order to know how to properly setup and configure a RAID system.

Gigabyte includes a fold-out installation guide for the new user. Its autorun feature brings up the main menu and scans the system for installed drivers.

The advanced section for fine tuning and overclocking could be prefaced with a disclaimer warning in order to satisfy the Gigabyte corporate lawyers.

RAID is one of the more confusing functions for consumers.

Gigabyte includes four 4-pin molex to SATA power connectors as the GA-K8N Ultra-SLI has an ability to support a total of 8 SATA drives.
