The company keeps to its traditions: minimal functionality, minimal capabilities and the same PCB for two form-factors (ATX and mATX) - hence so much empty space on the textolite on the left. We've got this board in the OEM package.
The layout has typical drawbacks: audio-ins are in front of the PCI, it's difficult to handle the memory modules when a video card is installed and because of multiple cables around the memory. It's not difficult to reach the only jumper when the board is already installed. Its functions are shown on the textolite.
The 4-channel switching voltage regulator incorporates 3 capacitors of 3300 uF, 4 of 1000 uF and several less capacious ones.
The following controllers are integrated:
+5 V supplied in the StandBy mode is indicated with the LED.
Non-unsoldered connectors: CNR slot.
The system monitoring is supported by the SMSC LPC47M172-NR chip. What is controlled:
There are 2 connectors for adjustable and 1 for unadjustable connection of fans.
Brief characteristics of the board: memory slots - 2 DDR SDRAM; expansion
slots - AGP/ 6 PCI; I/O ports - 1 COM/ LPT/ 2 PS/2/ 6 USB 2.0; dimensions - 305x210
can be carried out with:
We used the BIOS P02 as the latest available version.
The board will be a good choice for those users who are not interested in overclocking and who prefer external peripheral solutions to integrated ones.
