Abit AW9D Max socket 775 Motherboard

Installed - Lights

Extra Bling

I just had to put a note about installation and the extra "bling" that you get with the board.

abit have put backlight blue LED's on the board. These are adjustable for brightness in the BIOS and flash all of the time that the board is on. Certainly this is an excellent thing for those who have case windows and it add that extra special element into the board putting it above other boards. That is: IF you like blue!

Installed with my huge Scythe Infinity:

Installed in the case showing the lights:

These flash - seemingly at random: but it is a very nice visual feature to have, making your case look even better if you have a window

Let's see some SLI:

Excuse the wiring in my Antec P80b - the board lends itself to a normally layed out ATX case rather than having the PSU at the bottom of the case.

One thing I will say is that the firewire positioning is quite far into the board and you have to stretch a wire across. This could be solved with an extension around the back of the motherboard...if you are of the ilk that hate untidy wiring (like me).

I'm surprised that Seagate didn't patent this technology! Looks good though, I wonder who the first to make a 2gb drive will be Quote
