In the package you can find 2 SATA Cables, 2 Molex adaptors, 1 SLI bridge, I/O shield and one USB/Firewire bracket. They could've add more SATA cables at least.
As you can see the board looks very good, coming in black and grey colours. The board comes with solid capacitors, dual bios, voltage read points in the upper right corner, 8+2 Phase PWM. There is also a strange jumper in the top left corner named I-Limit which I have no idea of its purpose.

Note: The mainboard came with default bios version A27. I had to move to A39 because I couldn't install Windows XP. I didn't keep the board with the last bios version (A56) because I was having issues at booting. At the same settings (stable) used on the previous bios version the board sometimes was not posting, bios reset being necessary to start.

The setup:
Core i5 750 L939B455
Noctua NH-D14 stock fans
2x2GB Team Xtreem LV 2000Mhz CL9 @ 1.65v
ATi 4870 512MB
Enermax Pro82+ 525W
HD321KJ and HD642JJ storage


4000Mhz@1.306v Bios - 1.329v Load - Prime Large FFTs

Max SPi at 1.40v vcore under cold air, Wprime 32 and PiFast

Memory overclocking

1780Mhz CL 7-8-7-24 1T, vdimm - 1.65v

2094Mhz CL 8-9-8-24 1T, vdimm - 1.65v

2200Mhz CL 9-9-9-24 1T, vdimm - 1.65v

2000Mhz CL 7-8-7-24 1T, vdimm 1.80v

2000Mhz CL7 may work at lower volts, have to test.

I've also did a Vantage run to see how much volts are needed for 3D stable.

4400Mhz @ 1.38v, Asus 4870 512 @ 835/1100
