Package and Accessories
Let’s start with the colorful box the board comes in. The front side of the box with abit IP35 Pro reveals brief technical specifications of the mainboard against the background of an all terrain motor vehicle with a pretty strange name for a car. It says “Snake” on the side of it. A series of pictures on the reverse side of the box illustrates some key features that the manufacturer is especially proud of:
Overall, the box is quite ordinary, of pretty average size. However despite this fact, there was enough room in it for two additional boxes with all accessories very nicely arranged in them.
There is nothing extraordinary among the bundled accessories. The kit includes a mainboard user manual, abit uGuru guide, a CD disk with software and drivers, and a mainboard layout scheme sticker that can be placed inside the system case. Besides, the mainboard comes with black FDD and HDD cables decorated with the abit logo, six red SATA cables with metal clips and a bracket with two additional USB ports and two different IEEE1394 connectors.
