Aside from the standard implements, such as IDE/FDD cables, a Userís Manual, and driver CDs, Abit also includes a riser for two additional USB ports. This is something most manufacturers tend to neglect, and weíre happy to see Abit completing the package.

USB Riser

Fig 1. The included USB riser can be installed in a card slot, and provides two additional USB ports.

Installation concluded with no unexpected problems. As usual, the latest version of Intelís chipset and ATA drivers should be installed, although later versions of Windows do include sufficient driver support.
