so my monkeys are back in their cages and i took a few pictures.
i came home to this!
some how they seem to have managed to pack JUST like the newegg people.
that or they stole the box off the outbound shelf or something. silly monkeys...
OOOOHHHhhhhh pretty box
lets see whats in it!
a manual and a CD(drivers?). now whats under it?
A P55 FTW 200!
and lots of stuff under it too! sweet
it has 6 SATA cables, and expantion slot USB(2)/FireWire thing, 2 3 way SLI bridges and a looog 2SLI bridge, some 4pin MOLEX to SATA power adapter things, an I/0 plate, and lastly a remote (but attached by wires) power/reset/c-mos button thingy (picture to follow)
wow... that must be why the box was so heavy...
HOLY CRAPPY PICTURE BATMAN!
but i think this one makes up for it
and here is that remote PCB and some other features i thought were cool
it has power and reset and C-Moss reset buttons and 4 jumpers to turn off the individual PCI-E slots as well as a Post code display and 3 switches for voltage regs or something (not too sure didnt look that closely)
yep... thats 2 8 pin power connectors for your CPU. power problems? i think not
(heat maybe thought)
i really like where they put the CPU fan header on this. it will make it easy to hide the PWM wire on my pump
and mounting holes for both Socket 1156 (this board) AND 775 coolers. that i think is really cool. simply because it shows that EVGA is not one of those companies that wants you to have to change ALL your stuff with a new motherboard *COUGH* Intel always changing socket layouts *COUGH*
and a last min picture that i couldent wait to set up.
i just needed to see how good the water block looked on the board.... its sexy.... almost looks like they planned that
sadly every thing is back in its box and sitting on the table in my room now till i get more stuff or have time to cut some holes. but i thought i should show you guys what i have to play with now
as always. Questions, comments, suggestions, welcomed
