Additional connectivity on this board comes in the form of headers on the board. On the bottom left hand side there are the headers for the front panel Azailia audio and sound input from a CD or DVD drive. The bottom right hand side of the board features the rest of the connections. From left to right you can see the lone IDE slot, front panel connections, three USB headers for an additional 6 devices, 6 SATA ports (RAID is not an option with this board), SPI-ROM, InfraRed, JLPC 1, and a LPT 1 printer port.
The motherboard can support up to two gigabytes of system memory per slot for a total capacity of eight gigabytes of system memory. As with most of the newer socket 775 motherboards out today, there is plenty of room around the socket for a larger than stock cooling solution.
One of the unique things on this motherboard is the location and orientation of the CMOS battery. It sits upright on the lower edge of the motherboard. As long as it's functional, it's no problem. It was just odd to see it there.
Now that the board has been inspected, let's get it installed so we can see how it fares against a few other boards of its class.
