This is one of the areas that sets the NV7-133R apart from many other boards on the market. Firstly, it features USB 2.0 support through the VIA VT6202 chip. This will come in very handy to many of you because most future USB devices will be based around the 2.0 standard. The board also features an onboard 10/100 NIC, which contrary to what some people think, actually performed quite well and is a great alternative for those of you that do not own a network card.
Adding to the list of features is ATA133 RAID support through a Highpoint HPT372 controller. To top things off, 6 channel sound and Dolby Digital 5.1 support is available through the nForce chipset itself. It also features AC3 support and comes with an additional bracket that includes center, rear and sub channels, S/PDIF optical connections and two extra USB ports. The sound quality from this onboard sound solution was not as good as say, a Soundblaster Audigy, however, like most integrated solutions, it is very decent for those that do not have the money to purchase a PCI sound card. It is also one of the best onboard sound solutions I have ever tested.
Cooling the nForce 415 northbridge is a rather large, black passive heatsink. Active cooling was not needed for the nForce chipset and the lack of a fan is ideal if you want to keep your system as quiet as possible.
