The Jetway NF9C-2600 has one DDR3 SO-DIMM slot, one PCI slot, a mini PCI-E slot, three SATA connectors (the blue port is 6 Gbps) and three 3-pin fan headers. An extension cable plugs into a 4-pin floppy power connector on the board, providing two SATA and one molex power connector.

The board features a traditional two chip design with small aluminum heatsinks. The larger cooler is only 16 mm tall from the PCB surface. As the board takes side-mounted SO-DIMM memory, it can be installed in a very slim enclosure.

Connectors are provided for parallel, serial, and VGA ports as well as LVDS/inverter connectivity and a CFast card socket for miniaturized solid state storage. A DC-to-DC converter can be used, but the board can be powered using the AUX12V connector as well.

The rear panel is home to a combined S/PDIF/line-out jack, an RJ45 connector (Realtek gigabit ethernet), a serial port, one HDMI output, and the AC power connector. It's odd seeing a legacy port directly adjacent to a digital video connector, especially as it's the only native output provided.

The NF9C-2600 doesn't ship with its own power source. Jetway kindly slipped a 60W AC/DC brick into our review package.

Aside from minor voltage adjustment for the memory (up to +150 mV), there's nothing of note in the BIOS save the SmartFan menu. The board is otherwise basic in horsepower and features so it's rather unusual to find three 3-pin fan headers, all with custom controls in the BIOS.
