    Its the same MB as the NF7. It does come with some extra features, like uGuru. If you found the AN7 for less, than get it instead.

    Same indeed, but those "Goodies" are crappy and useless for seasoned overclockers. The Power regulation system for the CPU is also half assed compared the NF7-s. You'll see on some forums ppl added caps and MOSFETS to help stabilize it. Just grab the NF7-S it's got more modded bioses and it's a more mature board.

    The AN7 is probably better than the NF7-S2 (the newer, lesser quality (based on some reports), NF7).
