The characteristic 7-segment LEDs of a POST controller, as well as the IDE
RAID on the HighPoint's chip give away the authorship.
- Package of a new design;
- Documentation: user manual in
- Cables: 1 ATA66/100/133 and FDD;
with a Game port;
- Bracket for the rear computer panel;
Diskette with drivers for the IDE RAID;
- 2 CDs containing:
- system monitoring programs;
- Adobe Acrobat Reader;
Norton Ghost 7.0;
- PC-Cillin 2000;
- Power Quest Drive
- Power Quest Partition Magic SE 6.0.
The layout is not very good: the IDE RAID connectors are behind the PCI slots
while the audio-ins are in front of them. The FDD connector located on the left
edge will hinder cooling of the computer, and an inserted video card creates difficulties
in handling memory modules. It's not difficult to reach the jumpers when the board
is already installed. Their functions are shown on the textolite.
switching voltage regulator incorporates 8 capacitors of 3300 uF and 3 of 2200
The following controllers are integrated:
are two 7-segment LEDs for the POST controller.
- audio controller
based on the chipset's capabilities and ALC650 AC'97 codec supporting 5.1 audio
systems and with an SPDIF connector;
- IDE RAID controller on the
HighPoint HPT372 chip supporting RAID 0, 1 and 0+1 on the ATA133 protocol.
The system monitoring is supported by the Winbond WT83627HF-AW
chip. What is controlled:
are 3 connectors for adjustable connection of fans.
- processor voltage, +3.3, +-5 and +-12 V, VBAT,
+5 V Standby;
- speed of 3 fans;
- temperatures of the
processor (a built-in sensor), and the board (a built-in sensor).
of the board: memory slots - 3 DDR SDRAM; expansion slots - AGP/ 6 PCI; I/O
ports - 2 COM/ LPT/ 2 PS/2/ 6 USB 2.0; dimensions - 305x245 mm.

We used the latest available version of the BIOS of 22/07/2002.
It's not an ordinary board, but at the same time, it is typical of the company:
a good set of functions and a wealth of rich settings.
