PRODUCT PICTORIAL & WALKTHROUGH

Let your eyes do the walking and lets talk a stroll around this motherboard shall we.

The socket 478 bracket and surrounding area is pretty well obstruction free and should facilitate an easy cooler install.

My prayers have been answered!! A canterwood with a decent active northbridge cooler. Not only does it work extremely well, but you can also monitor the fan's speed through the included Winbond Hardware Doctor software.

The ram capacity is much like any canterwood on the market with 2Gb of Dual Channel or 4Gb support for Single channel memory. Abit pretty well hit the nail on the head with their setup with having both power and the floppy connectors at the top of the motherboard and out of the way. The less crowded at the bottom of your case, the better the airflow and case cooling.

With 4 ATA-133/100/66/33 support, the IDE connectors are oriented in a fashion that again helps rid the lower portion of the motherboard from any airflow obstruction. This should definitely be an industry standard. Toward the center of the board in the photo you will notice the CMOS clear jumper and the native Intel southbridge SATA RAID channels capable of RAID 0 or RAID 1.
