Notwithstanding its tiny form-factor, it matches modern mainboard models of the Deluxe category. Here’s a list of its technical characteristics:
AMD K8 Socket 754
NVIDIA nForce3 250 GB
2DDR DIMM slots for DDR400/DDR333/DDR266/DDR200 SDRAM
1 AGP 8x
8-channel C-media CMI8768
ATX, 180mm x 270mm
As you see, the Soltek engineers successfully solved the problem of designing so small a mainboard – they even found a place for the legacy ports (COM and LPT)! The modern functionality – eight-channel audio, FireWire, Gigabit Ethernet, SerialATA RAID – is all present, too.
Talking about the construction of the Qbic, I can’t pass by the 250W power supply unit with active power factor correction, the SS-250SFD model.
It is positioned horizontally above the back part of the case and it exhausts hot air with its 80mm fan.
