Package and Contents

First off, we start with our package. XFX has gone with the green and black colour scheme for its box, that being NVIDIA's colour scheme for its company. Very little information is contained on the front of the box.

On the back however, there is quite a bit of info including a full colour photo of the board. From this photo we can see that the board is a direct NVIDIA reference board, so unless we have a unique package inside to surprise us, there isn't anything that stands out over what we've seen in the past.

Being the first board we have received from XFX, we can't gauge the usual reference material. However, the box did come with a very thick user manual and a unique door hanger for the serious gamers; nice idea.

Moving along; we come to the cables that are included for the onboard headers. XFX has gone for an extremely well rounded cable setup. For the mass storage controllers; out of the seven SATA ports the board is equipped with, six data cables are provided. A single IDE cable with two drive support and one FDD cable make up the data portion.

 

For power adapters, there are three molex to 2-port SATA power cables, giving you a total of six drives supported out of the box. Great work XFX; even the ZOTAC reference board was a bit lacking in cables.

Lastly on the list are the PCI cover brackets, and there are two in total. One of them contains four USB 2.0 ports whilst the other contains an extra FireWire port.
