I recently bought a P5NSLI32 Premium Mobo.
I installed it and it's running fine.
The problem is CPU-Z is reporting the southbridge as a 570 8O

Naturally I was expeting 590 to show up here. 8)

If I'm correct the s-bridge is what controls the bus speeds of the slots, right?

I was looking for the dual 16x lanes but now what do I have (I know the answer if its really a 570)? :?

Here's more bad news...
The chipset is reported as an nForce4 SLI Intel Edition. 8O

WTF!!! :evil:

I waited a long time for this (although I should have waited for the 680) and now I feel cheated. :x
I AM SO DAMN MAD!! :evil: :x
(the emotocons just make me feel better as I write this.)

Man, i was thinking of buying the board. now my dreams have been shattered. I think its a manufacturing deffect. Or an MAJOR issue. Have tried contacting ASUS? If you have there customer service is the WORST IN THE WORLD!! (sorry about captials, i jsut need to really exaggerate on this point).

Hey, Im also having the same problem with CPU-Z reporting a nforce4 chipset and 570 southbride....

I bought it a few weeks back, but recently(today), when I went through the shop's website ANOTHER mobo was there called 'p5n32 SLI - SE Deluxe' which has an nforce4 SLIx16 chipset!!
