Our installation kit included a large variety of documentation but just enough cables to install one SATA hard drive and two Ultra ATA optical drives! This “Reviewers Kit” might not represent everything included in retail boxes, however, as the company also left out the game “Ghost Recon 2” that the box says will be included with retail units.
Also included are a Northbridge fan bracket and a Southbridge badge. The bracket doesn’t include a fan, but one will be required in systems that lack adequate airflow around the Northbridge sink. The Southbridge badge will actually inhibit airflow, which is probably why Intel leaves it up to the builder to decide whether or not it should be installed.
