Package and Accessories
Besides the mainboard the package contains only the most essential accessories:
- User’s manual;
- CD disk with drivers and utilities;
- Standard FDD cable;
- Standard HDD cable (PATA) and an optical drive cable;
- Two SATA cables;
- I/O shield.
I would like to specifically stress the comprehensive and understandable user’s manual included with the mainboard. There are no colored pictures and loud praising statements, but as far as efficiency and importance of the information are concerned, it can be a perfect example of how the user’s guides should be written. Another pleasing trifle was a complete list of POST codes for the Award BIOS in one of the appendixes of the manual.
