Once you cast a glance at this board, you will see that this is a budget solution with minimal requirements for functionality.
The layout is ordinary except the fact that IDE and FDD connectors are not easy to reach. Besides, the audio-ins are and some other connectors are located along the left side of the board, and when a video card is installed it's difficult to handle the memory modules. It can be difficult to reach some jumpers when the board is already installed. Their functions are shown on the textolite.
The 2-channel switching voltage regulator incorporates 8 capacitors of 3300 uF and 2 of 2200 uF.
The following controllers are integrated:
There is a special protection on the back for the textolite from massive processor coolers.
Non-unsoldered connectors: an interface of the FlashCard Reader controller with connectors, IEEE 1394 bus controller with connectors, network controller and RJ45 connector.
The system monitoring is supported by the Winbond W83627HF-AW chip. What is controlled:
There are 2 connectors for adjustable connection of fans.
Brief characteristics of the board: memory slots - 4 DDR SDRAM; expansion slots - AGP/ 6 PCI/ CNR; I/O ports - 2 COM/ LPT/ 2 PS/2/ 6 USB 2.0; dimensions - 305x245 mm.
