Conclusion:

The Abit motherboard was based upon the MCP55 Ultra and the M2N32-SLI Deluxe WiFi was based on the nForce 590 SLI. The KN9 Ultra managed to pound the ASUS motherboard in a majority of the Linux benchmarks. On top of that, the KN9 Ultra was backed by phenomenal GNU/Linux support even when it came to monitoring the hardware sensors. The number of accessories bundled with the KN9 Ultra was just right with everything needed to get the motherboard up and running while refraining from including every possible accessory, which would not have done anything except inflate the price tag. When it came to this latest revision of Silent OTES, it certainly had done a remarkable job of cooling the Chipset even while overclocking. This near-perfect motherboard is moderately priced at approximately $120 USD. The Abit KN9 Ultra is taking home our Editor's Choice Award due to its remarkable Linux support, performance, value, and overall great package. This is certainly a board for Abit and USI to be proud of. With Abit having a brighter outlook since the USI merger, we certainly look forward to seeing their new innovations out on the horizon.
