Abit AW9D Max Motherboard Review



Installation of the motherboard into the case of your choice is a pretty straight forward process. The first thing I do when installing a new motherboard is to check to make sure that the standoffs are located in the correct positions. Once that is done, install of the I/O shield. Now we get to the point where everything starts to fall into place. Install the motherboard onto the standoffs and secure it with screws.

Next we have the brain of the operation. Install your choice of socket 775 processors, in this case an E6700. Mount your cooling solution to the board making sure you apply your choice of thermal paste. Finish up by installing the system memory, graphics card(s), sound device, peripherals and you are ready to play.
