The TForce 590 SLI board comes in an attractive gift box with a handle on the top of the box, allowing for easy transport of the motherboard. The cover of the box has a picture of an unusual object, in other words I can't even describe what it looks like. Also on the cover are the main features of the board, including Socket AM2, SLI, Dual GbE, 1394, Dual DDRII-800 and eSATA/RAID. The rear of the box has a short description of the Biostar specific features.

Upon opening the box you will find a sight that many motherboard manufacturers can only dream of, a NEAT motherboard bundle. There are no loose SATA cables or Driver CDs to be found in the TForce 590 SLI box. There are two black boxes containing extra items including a headset with microphone for VOIP use and a cell phone charger, something I've never seen in a motherboard bundle before.

The items for the motherboard bundle come in an attractive little black nylon bag. There are three pockets in the bag, one containing the Rounded IDE cable, one the SATA cables, and the other the back plate, the SLI bracket, the SPDIF In/Out Coaxial bracket, the SLI bridge, the SATA Power cables, and the FDD cable. The whole assembly fits in a recessed area of the motherboard box, allowing easy neat organization of the motherboard components without any of the usual clutter found in other motherboard boxes.
