LAYOUT & ACCESSORIES

A cursory observation of the layout reveals no critical flaws. The IDE port is in a somewhat unusual spot — we're used to seeing it flush with the board edge. There is ample clearance around the socket and the power connectors are out of the way.


Bird's eye view.

VGA, DVI (digital only), HDMI, eSATA, Firewire, optical out are available on the back panel.


Connectivity.

Both the northbridge and southbridge chips are cooled with low profile heatsinks to avoid interfering with any PCI express expansion cards. To make use of the space they do occupy, the fins are thin and numerous.
