X-Bit labs have a review of the ASUS Striker II NSE Motherboard, based on the Nvidia nForce 790i SLI chipset:

Testing contemporary mainboards based on Nvidia chipsets is a real challenge for a hardware reviewer. At least for a responsible reviewer who cares about his reputation. All our previous experience with LGA775 mainboards based on nForce core logic sets indicates that it is really hard to make any positive conclusions about them without deceiving the readers. And even if the board performs impeccably during the test session, it doesnít quite do it. Nvidia Company have lost their credibility as a developer of reliable and stable solutions back in the days of nForce 680i SLI. After the mainboards based on it got into the mass market, the users experienced numerous incidents when they lost data from their hard drives because of the chipset bugs. And later on the owners of nForce 680i SLI based mainboards had to face pretty unpleasant compatibility issues with Intelís quad-core Penryn processors, although Nvidia used to claim there would be none. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to reveal issues like that during a regular editorial test session, since they occur occasionally and only in certain conditions.
