Closer Look:


The list of accessories is short but it includes enough connectivity for most users. Included with the GA-X48-DQ6 are the documentation, IDE and floppy cables, four SATA cables, two SATA expansion brackets with power connections and a Gigabyte case badge. 








The documentation includes the manual, a quick installation guide, Intel specific documentation as well as the driver disk. The I/O shield is color coded to make the connection of peripherals such as the mouse, keyboard and speakers a simple plug and play affair.



Drive connectivity options that are included are the usual floppy ,IDE and SATA device cables. Additionally, there are two expansion slota, add in eSATA connections that include a 4-pin Molex power connection to power the external enclosure.



The external drive capabilities are attached to the expansion slots and connect to the onboard SATA and power connections.



Last, but certainly not least, is the set of screws you will need to use to hold the northbridge heatsink into place if you decide to use a large heatsink that requires a backplate.
