ASUS F1A75-V Pro - The Board

 

When you look at the board you can see that it follows the similar color design to what we've seen from other "Pro" series motherboards from ASUS. The main stand-outs are the blue heatsinks connected by a heat pipe.

Moving in closer to the board, you can see our expansion setup. We've got a total of seven slots split amongst three legacy PCI, two x1 PCI-E and two x16 PCI-E. Of course, as you'd expect, both x16 slots don't run at x16; instead the dark blue one does which is your primary while the black one is wired up for only x4 speeds.

Moving across the bottom, we haven't got heaps going on, but all the normal bits and pieces are present. On the far left we've got a S/PDIF and COM port header; next to the UEFI BIOS logo we've got four USB 2.0 headers and on the far right we've got our main system header.

Turning the corner, you can see we've got a total of seven SATA ports with one of them facing upwards verse outwards. All seven of the SATA ports are SATA III, but are ran off two different controllers. The six white / gray ones all run natively off the AMD A75 chip, while the blue one sitting alone runs off the ASMedia PCI-E SATA III chip.
