DDR For AMD: 16 Boards With VIA KT266

Fujitsu-Siemens D1279: The Ultimate In Stability, Continued

The COM adapter cable included with the board is almost typical of Siemens. Further similar relics are the unlabeled ports and DIP switches - although Siemens has been known to be sensible about labeling on other occasions. The capacitors of the switching controller have been positioned somewhat disadvantageously on the board, making it rather complicated to install a large CPU cooler. Be that as it may, the board exhibited an outstanding level of stability in all the tests. This makes up for the less impressive benchmark results, since the traditional Siemens customer is not an all-out performance freak. A striking feature of this board is that it comes without a noisy chipset fan that is susceptible to wear.

The blanked out COM port is routed by cable to a slot plate.

Both cable and slot plate are included.
