The landscape of the IONITX is dominated by the massive aluminum heatsink sitting atop both the processor and chipset. It stands 36 mm tall (measured from the PCB) and has plenty of surface area. A slim 60mm optional fan for the heatsink is included in the package. Hopefully, we won't need to use it.

The board sports two DDR2 memory slots, two fan headers (one 4-pin PWM and one 3-pin), and three SATA ports. A male molex connector near the top of the board provides power for three SATA devices via an included adapter. Take note: This is an output, not an input.

The heatsink is attached to the back of the board with four spring-loaded screws.

The back panel is packed with the same outputs one would find on a premium motherboard with onboard graphics. HDMI, DVI, S/PDIF (both coaxial and optical) are represented as well as eSATA.
