The ABIT AB9 motherboard is a Dual Core ready motherboard offering superior overclocking ability without burning a massive hole in your pocket. Based on the Intel P965 chipset, the AB9 supports the latest, and the fastest, Intel Core 2 Duo 1066/800 MHz FSB processors. It features ABIT's revolutionary SoftMenu technology that allows you to adjust your CPU settings directly from the BIOS set-up. With the help of the integrated µGuru chip, you can easily interact overclock, monitor, optimize, and stabilize your system using "zero" computer power. Its SilentOTES works in tandem with µGuru and dissipates heat away from the motherboard quickly and efficiently.
With an 8 Gigabyte memory capacity (Dual channel DDR2) and a PCI-E X16 graphic card slot, the AB9 ensures that you can tweak your board to better performance. Six SATA 3Gb/s connectors ensure warehouse-storage capacities and four expansion slots (2 x PCI-E X1 + 2 x PCI) make sure that you have ample room for all the cards you need. The motherboard features a built-in 7.1-channel High-Definition Audio Codec that delivers audiophile-grade sound. Additionally, the On-board Gigabit Ethernet card helps eliminate the need for an add-on LAN card and reduces card-clutter.
This is a great mainstream board that's ready to be pushed to your limits to give you the power and flexibility you need!
