As far as mainboard chipsets go, I would have to agree with them on that issue. Overall, Asus has smartly thought out the A7NE, and that will of course make most of us happy. Because of this, they can save on design costs and the raw parts are already available. Site design and front-end production by mike kane. Asus, synonymous with quality mainboards, straps on the new nForce chipset. Note that there is no ATX header jammed up against the area around the S either. Yes, it is a “backwards” PCI slot.

I highly suggest you check the manual for the specific nForce chipset board you buy, as memory matrix configurations are different between manufacturers. This is the “B2” revision, better known as the “B02”.
Note that there is no ATX header jammed up against the area around the S either. Escape From Tarkov FS: Still, it is very likely that while you audil seen these ACR slots out and about, you have never seen anything actually stuck in them. This revision was being tested back in September when there was talk of the B03 making its way out. First, check out the red cable left in the picture.
I would have liked to have seen the ATX header mounted in the empty space occupying the upper right hand corner where the logo is, though. Since we are dealing with two channels of bandwidth for simultaneous memory access, they have broken the DIMM slots into two groups. That is where we get the “-E” at the end of A7NE.

Ritual of the Night Development ThursdayJanuary 03, Author: First, wake the hell up, because you most likely have been asleep since June. You might notice that the layout of the memory slots is bit different than what you might be used to seeing. Because of this, they can save on design costs and the raw parts are already x7n266.
Here is another board that many are waiting to see if it packs the promised punch or not. All trademarks used are properties of their respective owners. There is plenty of room in the “no mount” zone, so it should be pretty easy to mount all but the largest HSFs. Pay close attention to DASP, HyperTransport, and the TwinBank memory architecture, as they are probably the three most important features that are going to give the [H]ardcore techie the chubbage.
That is really my only “gripe” regarding the layout; although I don’t see the placement being a serious issue with much anybody. The A7NE is the first motherboard to offer complete integrated features without sacrificing performance. Most boards we see with on-board sound have a three aduio header under the gameport. What is interesting then about this picture is what is missing.

When you’re done, come back here and see if all that marketing hype is actually true! The heatsink was attached with pins as well as an adhesive. It is simply one of those things that could have been better, but I am sure the engineers had aasus problems with a new chipset than header placement. I would suggest breaking it loose and using some well placed paste.
Yes, it is a “backwards” PCI slot. Channel one has one slot and channel two has two slots, which gives us a total of three DIMM slots.
Apparently not quite yet, or most of the B02 issues have been taken care of. Overall, Asus has smartly thought out the A7NE, and that will of course make most of us happy. A pair of pliers and a cut knuckle later, we were able to get under the heatsink to see what revision of akdio chipset we actually had.

While this is usually a pretty boring picture to look at, this shot will reveal a couple of things about our board. Let’s start at the socket and move clockwise. Site design and front-end production by mike kane. Not this time round, though.
That is what Asus has to say about it anyway.
