About the Product

The VNF4 Ultra ZENITH VE is a socket 939 motherboard for Athlon 64 CPUs that uses the Nvidia nForce4 Ultra chipset. It has 4 DDR DIMM slots, 1 PCI-Express x16, 2 PCI-Express x1, 3 PCI slots, integrated audio (Realtek ALC850)with coaxial S/PDIF output, 4 SATA-300 channels, 2 ATA-133 channels, 10 USB2.0 ports but no FireWire ports.
There is also a cheaper version of this board (VNF4 ZENITH VE) that instead uses the NVIDIA nForce4 (non-Ultra) chipset. The features are almost the same, except that ActiveArmor network security is missing and SATA-300 is reduced to SATA-150.
