Overclockers Online is checking out ABITs IT7 MAX featuring the Intel 845E chipset. This board is legacy free, meaning there are no serial ports, no parallel ports and no PS/2 ports.

First of all, the IT7 sports a total of 10 USB2.0 ports, 6 of them are controlled by the ICH4 while the other 4 USB connections are powered by an onboard VIA VT6202 USB2.0 controller. These 10 USB2.0 ports should provide you with enough connections to plug in a USB keyboard (remember .. no PS2 connections), a USB mouse, a webcam, a flatbed scanner, and so on ... These USB2.0 connections are backwards compatible so you can easily use your older USB1.0 devices on this board without having to worry about compatibility issues! ;) I have tried all the available USB ports on this IT7 and they all work flawless.
