Back Plate and MOSFET heatsinks


The hardware bundle on this motherboard is as extensive as it gets for this class of motherboard. Four SATA cables allow you to run RAID 0 on four hard disks. The included USB bracket brings the total USB ports out of the box to six. One nice touch is the inclusion of a thermometer allowing accurate temperature readings. The software bundle I talked about on the Special Features area of the review and isn't necessary to repeat here. A set of MOSFET Heatsinks is included to put over the MOSFETs.
