Manual and Labeling ++ Complete motherboard inscription and except the often mentioned missing BIOS section it’s a detailed manual with all pin allocations in different languages e.g. German, English, etc. Small devaluation of the manual, because the BIOS is explained only in the manual on the CDROM, where it doesn’t helps if one is in the BIOS! Positive is the additionally enclosed S-ATA II quick reference guide.
