board comes with 2 PCI, 3 PCIex 16 slots and 1 PCIe x 1 slot
and slot for audio card. The white colour slot runs at PCIe x8 while the two
blue coloured slots runs at full PCie x16. Behind the PCIe x1 slot are the
two Marvell GbE Controllers. On its left is the audio codec. At the centre,
we can see the north bridge which is attached with a passive heatpipe.
At the bottom left corner of the
board is the BIOS. On the left of the BIOS chip, you can find the PowerOn
switch, reset Switch and Clear CMOS. Instead of the usual shorting of pins,
you can now power on, reset or clear the CMOS by pressing the spring loaded
switches. The south bridge supports 6 SATAII ports and 1 IDE Channel.
At the rear is the PS/2,
Keyboard, S/PDIF, 1394, eSATAII x2 (supported by Sil3132), 4 USB ports and 2
GbE ports and the LCD Poster which shows POST codes on system error.
