Motherboards can look alike from afar, but once you
begin building a computer system you quickly realize where extra time has
been spent to make your life
easier. A physical power and reset switch are easily accessible on the
Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7-B3 motherboard, to the left is the clear CMOS button.
A large power button and reset switch are located by the RAM slots.
Don't confuse the CMOS reset switch with the rest button.
Here we see the rear I/O NEC USB 3.0 controllers.
While USB 2.0's 480Mb/s maximum bandwidth was enough for many years, USB 3.0
(above in blue) expands the bandwidth to a whopping 4.8Gb/s (4800Mb/s) which is
more appropriate for today's large mass storage devices.
