Leadtek WinFast K7NCR18D
Board Revision: ?
BIOS Version: Nov 6, 2002
This board differs from the other two by focusing on the required features. That's why there is no second network port, no RAID or Serial ATA, and only four PCI slots. Still, the IDE and floppy connectors are in front of three of them.
However, Leadtek included an ACR riser card that will enable three Firewire ports.
The K7NCR18D differs from the competitors by missing overclocking options. Though you can alter the CPU voltage and FSB speed, there is no option to change the processor multiplier.
The ACR slot can be identified by its "wrong" direction.
Everything you need, but nothing more: 80-conductor IDE cable; floppy cable; and a SPDIF adapter cable. On the right edge you can see the ATX cover.
Yes, this brand name and CI is well known for graphics cards.
The Firewire riser board uses a chip from Agere and offers three ports.
Besides the manual, you will get a driver CD plus two CDs containing applications from Ulead: VideoStudio 6 and Cool3D SE.
