The abit NF7 has a decent pcb layout, but not perfect. The floppy connector is placed for too high on the motherboard. Placing it next to the other IDE channels would have been a better choice.
I'd rather see the 12V and ATX connector at the side of the motherboard, next to the dimm slots, but it seems like most nforce² boards have this design.
The cpu fan connector is well placed, but the 2 casefan connectors are right next to each other, at a fairly unreachable place at the ATX connector.
- 1* PS/2 keyb, 1* PS/2 mouse
- 1* S/P dif out
- 5 audio connectors: (front, rear, center/sub, line in, mic in)
- 2* usb 2.0
- 1* lan
- 2* serial
- 1* parallel
Only 2 usb ports (without the use of an extra USB bracket) can be a bit annoying, but spdif ouf & 5 audio connectors is something what the 8rda+ lacks.
