    Abit IX38 Quad GT

    Sean, can you just confirm the number of external usb sockets on this board I see the back panel has 4. The mobo has 4 usnb headers. Though there is no mention of a pci usb bracket, to connect to a mobo header. The accesory box Pic (bottom) doesn't show any bracket.

    Shipping like that seems abit shoddy on what looks so far a great board.
    Am hoping to get mine soon currently on pre-order.

    thanks

    Sorry there is no PCI USB bracket with this motherboard. This is because there is not enough room in the box.

    Oh well that's a new way to decide what the package contains.
    Where & for how much £ can oner be obtained please.
    I'd also be interested in the Guru panel/ free standing guru unit. again which models are available & are compatable with the board.

    thanks

    This has got to be the Dumbest Excuse for not supplying basic standard I/O needs in what is supposed to be a high-end product. Abit should re-design the box then.... there is plenty of room for such additions in the AB9 QuadGT box. Also, only 4 Sata cables might be a bit mean (my AB9 QuadGT uses all 6 internal SATA ports). Spoiling the ship for a halfpence worth of tar here methinks!

    A bit under £3 each from cpc.farnell.com product codes CS04195, CS07803, CS10030 and CS12036 (USB & Firewire). I use CPC quite a lit - they are VERY quick (like always next day - even of free postage) they are like the ScrewFix of electronic and small tools and have a huge range.

    I use the uGuro Clock GC-02 on 3 AB9 Quad GTs.... (get them off ebay) works well - but the later versions (if you can get them) cober more temp and fan speed displays I believe.

    Hi EtheAv8r,
    Yep ino disrespect to sean but it does seem a bit weak Will have to look in my stuff may have a spare somewhere, but like you think it's a pretty petty ommision.

    Yeps that's why i asked, didn't fancy getting one that didn't cover features for this board.

    cheers

    tbh I think it was more a lack of communication in the marketing department.

    Also there should be a new version of the guru panel that supports the latest models. I don't have an official release date yet but I will keep you updated.

    Re: Abit IX38 Quad GT

    Sean, I'm also looking for these items, I'm reviewing the board at the moment, and its one of the few areas that I've found so far that was a minus point.

    4x USB on a flagship board is enough to put many people off.

    I have a USB keyboard and mouse, and my front panel and card reader use the other two, then theres my external hard drives..you can see where I'm going here.

    Yes, we can buy a PCI plate from maplins, yes, I could buy a USB hub from anywhere, but really, on a flagship motherboard, we shouldnt have to, especially when you look at the bundles that other manufacturers give at a similar (or lower) price point.

    Just my 10p's worth

    I hear what your all saying but its not my department. I can certianly pass on your comments to the PM department but working for a local office I have no control over the products sold.

    I'm also miffed as to why provide the headers but not the bracket, if I count my currently connected USB devices, (x1 wireless desktop, x1 FreeAgent HD, x1 Flash Drive, x1 Voiphone) thats all four USB ports used up already.
    In Abit's defence I think it's a case of oversight rather than penny pinching, and if anyone lives near a "Poundland Shop" I got a 4 port USB-2 hub for a quid, which actually works!

    Unacceptable excuse. You should have made a bigger box. You are not doing your company any favours by posting feeble excuses like this. I hope there was space for the motherboard.

    Hi there,

    I believe I may be able to help, You are correct that the board SHOULD have a USB bracket, and that the box not being big enough is not a valid reason! However I see this from both points of view, all Sean can do is have a word with Tiawan and ask to change their SOP (standard operating procedure)
    It is upto to Tiawan to change their boxes.

    With Seans permission, I can ask around to see what can be done about this?

    But you can voice our opinion. I think the best thing you can do is get these USB brackets for us and ship them to whoever has bought this board with proof of purchase. I think this is only fair.

    I did think of that so I spoke to the sales department and there are 2 issues.

    1. I don't have enough in stock
    2. Because the item was never included it was never added to the final price of the board.
