The Next 'BX': 13 Motherboards For Pentium 4 With Intel's 845 Chipset and Socket mPGA478

Chaintech 9BJA

Board Revision: ?

BIOS Version: Oct 10, 2001

Chaintech equipped this board with three DIMM sockets, five PCI slots, a CNR slot and a PCI sound chip from C-Media with support for six-channel sound. The only additional gimmick is the on-board PC speaker; besides that, it can be considered a standard Pentium 4 motherboard, likely to be sold via OEM channels.

A reason for this may be the FSB clock of 102 MHz. That's clearly too high, but, as you can see in the benchmark section, it performed well, though not much better than its competitors.

Inside the box is a manual, jumper reference, cables and a driver CD.
