More Features (Cont’d)
Like some other motherboards from Extreme series this motherboard features a dual-BIOS solution. As far as we know only other two companies provide this feature, Gigabyte and Albatron. This feature allows you to recover the contents of your BIOS chip if the chip was erased by a virus like CIH/Chernobyl or during a bad BIOS upgrade. Called “Top-Hat Flash” you need to install the backup BIOS literally on the top of the motherboard BIOS, see Figures 7, 8 and 9.
In Figure 10, you can see all cables and accessories that come with this motherboard: four Serial ATA cables, one Serial ATA power adapters, two parallel IDE flat-cable, one floppy disk drive flat-cable, one cross-over cable, one external SATA cable (Port Multiplier cable), one SLI bridge, one metallic bracket for fastening the SLI bridge to the case, one I/O bracket with two USB ports and one FireWire port, one plastic frame for putting the USB and FireWire ports on the case front panel, one parallel port bracket and one external SATA bracket.
This motherboard comes with two CDs with motherboard drivers and utilities.
