Chaintech ZNF3-150 ZENITH Motherboard Review

Former staff writer    -   March 3, 2004


Closer Look:
When the UPS delivered the motherboard’s box to my house, I was amazed at the size of the box. I opened the brown box expecting to find a ton of bubble wrap or styrofoam peanuts, but to my surprise there were actually very little of each. Inside the big brown box was a huge shinny box inside of which was Chaintech’s motherboard. - The shine is caused by the reflection and angle of the room and camera lights, it's not really as multicolored as it looks.

Opening Chaintech’s box I soon found out why such a huge box was used. There was a ton of stuff in here. I expected motherboard, user guide, and a few of the common motherboard accessories. Boy was I wrong. Chaintech includes just about everything except for the kitchen sink.

Included in the package is:

  • Chaintech Zenith ZNF3-150 Motherboard (duh)
