NinjaLane Motherboard Flashback: Chaintech Zenith ZNF3-150

We enjoy having our nostalgic senses tweaked every Thursday with our Throwback series, and it’s clear now that we are not alone. Dennis Garcia at NinjaLane also enjoys a walk down memory lane on a Thursday, last week posting a piece that involves a real favorite of his, the Chaintech Zenith ZNF3-150 board. I’ll allow him to explain:

“Back in the early 2000’s AMD was on top of the performance world with a very highly sought after CPU that was not only inexpensive but, fast and loved to overclock. This trifecta was further enhanced by NVidia and their launch into building chipsets along with top notch GPUs.”

To enhance performance and make motherboard production cheaper AMD launched the Athlon64 processor platform and things have changed forever. The new processor combined a CPU with a Memory Controller allowing for better performance and lower latency. It also allowed companies like NVidia to develop single chip motherboard solutions and concentrate on connectivity over raw performance.”

If you are a man with fond memories of Chaintech motherboards, make sure you read the full article here on NinjaLane.

My first OC board was the ZNF3-250. Actually made my first submission with it: Strunkenbold`s CPU Frequency score: 2523.65 mhz with a Turion 64 ML-32
