ASRock motherboard highlights

In terms of expansion the Asrock ALiveNF7G-HDready has a single PCI Express x1 slot for high bandwidth peripherals, a PCI Express x16 slot for videocards and two PCI slots for misc hardware. At the bottom left hand corner, you find the audio connectors, from the analog line from the optical drives to the SPDIF in/out. Next to the audio jacks is the floppy drive connector and the internal IEEE 1394a header.

The bottom right hand corner of the Asrock ALiveNF7G-HDready motherboard is pretty busy. There are four Serial ATA II slots (which are RAID compatible), just below them are four blue USB 2.0 headers. Just under that is the front panel I/O header. The nVIDIA GeForce 7050PV and nForce 630A chipsets are integrated into one silicon die and are cooled with a small passive aluminum heatsink. Good thing it produces less heat then the previous GeForce 6150 chipset.

The four DDR2 memory slots support a maximum of 8GB of DDR2-800 memory in a dual channel configuration. ASRock colour coordinate the memory slots so you know which slots to occupy to enable dual channel mode.

Space around the CPU socket is a bit tight so if you're using a heatsink that hangs over the side, you may have a problem here. The Asrock ALiveNF7G-HDready motherboard is compatible with older ATX 1.4 spec power supplies (20 pin).

The Asrock ALiveNF7G-HDready motherboard natively runs with a 24 pin ATX 2.0 spec power supply however if you're using an older ATX 1.4 spec PSU that will be ok too. There are two fan headers here. The four pin PWM power connector is for the processor heatsink fan and the three pin fan header by the PCI Express x1 slot can be used with a case exhaust fan. It's also good to use this with an aftermarket videocard cooler.
