Nonetheless, the IP35 Pro is outfitted with enough features to keep most enthusiasts happy: two physical PCI Express x16 slots (in a x16/x4 lane configuration), six internal 300MB/s Serial ATA ports with RAID support, two external eSATA ports with RAID support, two FireWire ports, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, heat pipe-based Silent OTES chipset and power circuitry cooling, and support for Abit's Î¼Guru overclocking, tweaking, and fan monitoring software. There's even a button on the rear I/O panel to clear the CMOS, should a failed overclock attempt render the board unable to post.
Moving down the line, the IP35 is similar to the IP35 Pro, but it does away the aforementioned CMOS clear button as well as the secondary physical PCIe x16 slot, an extra Gigabit Ethernet port, both external eSATA ports, and Î¼Guru support. As for the IP35-E, it removes Serial ATA RAID support and bumps down the number of SATA ports to four. It also lacks heat pipe-based cooling and FireWire connectivity.
