Board Layout


Click here for a 3000x2500 high-res shot of the board (3 MB download).


There is plenty of space around the LGA775 CPU socket. Even one of the huge new CPU coolers will fit fine.


PS/2 Keyboard, PS/2 Mouse, LPT, two COM ports, Audio, Dual Ethernet, four USB Ports. On the backside panel the most important connectors are included in a layout matching the ATX specification.


The motherboard's memory slots have been color coded for easy dual-channel configuration.

Connectors


While the 24-pin ATX power connector is very conveniently placed, the ATX12V connector could be placed in a better location.


You will find three parallel ATA ports on this motherboard, for a total of six IDE devices. One orange port, provided by the chipset and two yellow ones which are provided by an ITE 8212F RAID controller chip.


The color scheme of the Reset/Power/LED connectors helps finding the right pins when installing the board the first time.


Four Intel ICH6R powered SATA 150 MB/s ports can be found on the board.

Slots


When using a video card with a two slot cooler, you will probably lose access to the PCI-E x1 slots, it would have made more sense if one PCI and PCI-E slots were swapped.
