Question about ASUS A8N-E Motherboard
There is a problem with the Southbridge chipset. The nForce4 chipset over heats.
Asus has not made a better cooler for the nForce4 Southbridge chipset.
(It does not cool the chipset as it should).
You will have the same trouble with a new A8N-E MB.
Sooner or later if you do not change the chipset cooler with a stronger fan/heatsink assembly like any of the ones listed on the next link, the chipset will burn up.
Here is the link to Asus for a replacement chipset fan;
