9EJL1 (i845E) Mainboard (Apogee series)
This is one more board from the Apogee line. In the description of the Chaintech
7VJL board you can look though its functions and accessories, and the today's
model will arouse the same interest among supporters of the Socket 478.
- Package of a stylish design with a handle;
Documentation: user manual in English;
- Cables: 2 ATA66/100/133
and FDD - all of them are covered in green cambric for better ventilation inside;
CBOX bracket with 4 USB 2.0/1.1 connectors and Audio-In/Out;
for the rear computer panel with Rear and Bass/Center connectors;
Body Theater headphones emulating a 4.1 audio system;
- Thermo grease;
4 CDs containing:
- user manual in PDF;
Realtek CPUBoost (for changing a FSB frequency from Windows);
Internet Security 2002;
- Norton Antivirus 2002;
- Adobe Acrobat Reader;
- Adobe eBook Reader;
- ThizLinux 6.0 (Asian & European version).
The layout is similar to the junior 9EJL0:
audio-ins are located in front of the PCI and AGP slots and the FDD is behind
them. It's not difficult to reach jumpers when the board is already installed.
Their functions are shown on the textolite.
The 3-channel switching voltage
regulator incorporates 7 capacitors of 2200 uF and 3 of 1200 uF.
controllers are integrated:
IT8712F-A I/O controller supports a smart card reader (the connector is provided).
- audio controller based on the C-Media
CMI8738/PCI-6ch-LX chip with a connector for front audio inputs/outputs, an SPDIF
connector and the support for 5.1 audio systems;
- network controller based
on the Realtek RTL8100B supporting 10Base-T/100Base-TX.
Non-unsoldered connectors: AUX Power connector, AC'97 codec and IDE RAID controller
The system monitoring is supported by the ITE IT8712F-A
chip. What is controlled:
are 2 connectors for adjustable connection of fans.
- processor voltage, +1.5, +3.3, +-5 and
+-12 V, VBAT, +5 V Standby;
- speed of 2 fans;
of the processor (a built-in sensor), and the board (a built-in sensor).
of the board: memory slots - 2 DDR SDRAM; expansion slots - AGP/ 6 PCI/ CNR;
I/O ports - 2 COM/ LPT/ 2 PS/2/ 6 USB 2.0; dimensions - 305x230 mm.

We used the latest available version of the BIOS of 07/05/2002.
The richest accessory package and a wide range of adjustable features coupled
with a high speed even with the default parameters are the strongest points of
the board (as well as of the whole Apogee series).
