ASUS A8N32-SLi Deluxe
The A8N32-SLi comes in a standard sized, albeit rather thick, black box. The thickness can easily be attributed to the large amount of extras that come with the motherboard:
- Rear I/O Panel
- Flexible SLi bridge
- Optional fan for chipset
- COM port bracket
- Game port + 2 x USB 2.0 bracket
- 2 x Firewire 400Mbps (IEEE 1394a) (4-pin and 6-pin)
- 1 Floppy cable
- 2 IDE cables
- 5 SATA cables
- 3 Molex-to-SATA power cables (up to 5 SATA power connections)
A detailed manual and a driver CD are included, along with a larger marketing leaflet for this board and its sister-board, the P5N32-SLi Deluxe, which also has SLi x16, but uses Intel processors instead. In addition, a full version of WinDVD Suite is also included. An ASUS casebadge is also included for obvious purposes.
The Firewire and USB rear brackets are standard fare, but Asus even included brackets for the older game port and COM port, both of which are quickly becoming history. A whopping 5 SATA cables, in addition to 2 IDE cables, are also included for those who have an entire army of hard drives waiting.
A flexible SLi bridge is also included. This is a rarity, and probably only the second or third time a motherboard manufacturer has included this with one of their motherboard models.
Another interesting accessory is the optional blower fan for the chipset heatsink, which we will go into detail later.
