ABIT Website To Go Completely Shut By End of February

Urgh, sad news :-(

Back in March, 2009, the industry lost ABIT as a consumer motherboard vendor, as it announced its exit. ABIT had been a reputable vendor of high-end PC motherboards. The company stayed on as a shell to complete honoring warranties, with its website on a little longer, to help with drivers, BIOS, and product manual downloads, among other things. It appears now that the clock for the website has also run out. A notice on the start page of the website says that the website will go offline on the 28th February, 2012. If you have an ABIT product, it would be a good idea to download PDF files of its manuals, a copy of its BIOS (if applicable), and drives, before the website goes down for good.

unfortunately i don't have a webspace or something and the whole stuff is quite big (over 12gb).
but if someone asks, i can send bios, manuals, etc. :)

Christian Ney says:

Who know a good program to download the whole Abit website ? so I can host it on my server so drivers/manuals/specs stay available and if somebody have the link to their ftp server if they have any to also download beta bios.

My Abit AA8XE was the best 775 board I had for that series of the supported CPU's. and it died not a month ago :( uGuru was before it's time, the uGuru Windows OC'ing utility puts ET6 to shame...

Colombia saint19 says:

If for some reason you can't have the space for those 12GB, let me know...

United States sin0822 says:

i loved uguru! i kept the sticker from the chip on the abit board, have it in my case badge collection. uGuru was so easy to use and so good for OC.

Soo many fun times with Abit boards, and back in the day they had a lot of cool member posting on their forums, will be a sad day to see it go offline for good.

Norway knopflerbruce says:

Maybe we should try to do the same thing with the DFi website?

Not sure when it will go down, but at some point I bet they'll get rid of it... been a LONG time since they made any LanParty boards.
