Package and Contents
First up, as always, the package. ASUS has gone with the traditional blue box design that denotes its mainstream Intel boards. Since Intel's colour of choice is blue, ASUS has followed suit. The box is of standard size for ATX boards; no oversized box here, which means we won't get as much inside the package as we did with the OC Palm or Rampage II Extreme boards. However, knowing ASUS we will get enough to keep us going.
On the back of the box ASUS has put a full colour photo with box-outs explaining the features of the board along with a full spec list on the side, which is an identical replica to the spec sheet found on the P6T6 WS Revolution page on the ASUS website. Kudos on the extra info here ASUS.
ASUS hasn't gone overboard with the reference material; there is a single user manual, however, it's almost as thick as a Steven King novel with all the info on board setup, specs, features, BIOS setup and software explanations for the included software on the DVD, which also details use of the EPU-6 power saving system that the board has built in to reduce overall system power usage when idle, as well as when under light to moderate loads.
When we said we didn't expect a whole lot in the way of accessories, we didn't quite expect to see this much in the box. First off, there are six SATA data cables along with a Molex to SATA power converter as well as a single IDE cable supporting two drives and two SAS to SATA converters with built in Molex power plugs.
The board doesn't come with any onboard power or reset switches as standard; however, for the enthusiast who will get this board for overclocking and the six PCIe x16 slots, ASUS incorporated a daughter card that plugs into a header on the bottom of the board which gives it a power on/off switch, reset button and a POST code reader.
