ASUS bundles the motherboard in a green box with the name of the board on it, the features of the board including support for the AM3 CPU, and a list of the main features including EPU, SLI Express Gate and the 8+1 Phase Power Design. The rear of the box has a detailed description of the features of the motherboard and the contact information for ASUS.

Opening the box we can see ASUS went the middle road with the motherboard bundle. There are four SATA Data cables, allowing the end-user to install four drives in RAID without buying another cable. The SLI Bridge is useful as you need one to do 2-way SLI on this board. The Q-Connector allows you to install the Front Panel IO connections at one go for convenience.

Software-wise, the M4N72-E motherboard comes with the usual suite of software including PC Probe II (Hardware monitoring), ASUS Update (BIOS Update), Norton's Internet Security 2009 (Anti-Virus+Personal Firewall), MediaOne, and PhotoImpact. TurboV is ASUS's overclocking utility which I will cover more in the BIOS and Overclocking section of the review.
