A770crossfide last thing that bothers me with this board is the relatively small passive cooling solution and the lack of fan headers. The cooling system is quite standard for such motherboards, we can mention only the alternating fin height of the Northbridge heatsink and its imposing dimensions. Introduction, design Page 2: The SATA connectors a770crossfirs all located at the bottom corner of the board and remain out of the way for long graphics cards.

Many motherboards are putting the power connectors on the right edge and this certainly has benefits for cable management.

Using a special card installed correspondingly into the slot between graphics ports to control them is not a coercive measure because the chipset does not officially support CrossFire. Connect to the system power supply. But this opportunity proved to be very useful for inexpensive motherboards on AMDbecause such motherboards usually don’t come with additional controllers, and so integrated functionality of the chipset asrovk very important.

Some users will like the idea to preserve the opportunity to plug six internal hard drives. But there may be insufficient power for its overclocking, because the field-effect transistors are not equipped with heat sinks on this motherboard. Do NOT place jumper caps over these headers These cards are unified, so that the same card could switch between SLI modes in another model.

Digital audio output is taken care of by a RCA style connector as well as a digital optical connector. A770crossfirs a comment below. Gaming and Real-World Performance.

Firewire is typically used for external hard drive connections and as eSATA has gained popularity, IEEE appears to be taking a back seat on some motherboards.

Even though these slots are PCIe 2.

It can accommodate two very long graphics cards with dual-slot cooling systems without blocking any peripheral ports on the board.
