SI7 (Charle Hsieh) - Board With The SiS 658 Chipset, Continued
Offset arrangement: although the processor socket and Northbridge are parallel with each other, they are in fact arranged diagonally on the board. This arrangement is necessary for keeping to the signal propagation times.
Brand-new: the 963UA Southbridge from SiS.
This is what it looks like when the Northbridge cooler is integrated.
For years now, Abit has relied on RAID controllers from Highpoint. Here, it was covered over with a dubious-looking sticker.
This chip was developed under the direction of Abit and assumes internal functions.
