abit are a revived company recently with enthusiast eagerley awaiting their next board to come out. The AW9D Max had rave reviews from around the web and seemed to harken back to the awesome Max series of motherboards in the past.
The IN9 Max seemed to take even longer to come out that everyone had hoped. Based on nVidia's 680i chipset and bundled with more features than you can shake a stick at, the IN9 Max seems ready to go on every front. Will it stand up to the usual round of OC3D tests? let's see...
abit seem to be heading towards gargantuan proportions with their motherboard boxes nowadays, especially in their high-end boards. When the package came through my door it was certainly impressive.
The box includes a plethora of stuff for you to use with the board. In fact I was quite overwhelmed when I took a look inside those neat little white boxes.
Here's what abit have put in the box for you:
* 1 x abit "AirPace" PCI-E x1 WiFi card
* 2 x Extra-long SLI connectors
* PCI backplate bracket to secure SLI bridge connectors (see below)
* Fan mount for NorthBridge
* I/O backplate
* 6 SATA data cables
* Rounded clear IDE cable
* Rounded Black FDD cable
* PCI backplate with 2 x USB and 2 x Firewire connecters (1 x large, 1 x small)
* 1 x Digital Optical audio cable
* 1 x AirPace manual
* 1 x abit IN9 32x Max Manual
* 1 x µGuru Users Manual
* 1 x abit IN9 32x Max Motherboard Jumper Settings quick-reference sheet
* 1 x Driver & Utilities CD for abit IN9 32x Max
On a more serious note, it's good to see abit stacking up this board with all that an enthusiast needs. It makes you feel that your money is well spent, so good job abit.
