The Evolution of OTES
The original OTES redefined VGA cooling to the point where manufacturers are now using gimmicks like multiple fan combinations on VGA cards in a vain effort to match the cooling prowess of OTES. Now, in the interests of cooling and performance, OTES has been redesigned to cool the hottest part of a motherboard: the PWM power regulation mosfets and capacitors. While active cooling on the northbridge has been developed in recent years, the PWM area has been completely ignored. OTES fills this need, while also serving to exhaust air outside of the PC case.
MAX3 will bring to your PC:
For MAX3, the ABIT Engineers listened to users who were asking for information security. SecureIDE connects to your IDE hard disk and has a special decoder; without a special key, your hard disk cannot be opened by anyone. Thus hackers and would be information thieves cannot access your hard disk, even if they remove it from your PC. Protect your privacy and keep anyone from snooping into your information. Lock down your hard disk, not with a password, but with encryption. A password can be cracked by software in a few hours. ABIT's SecureIDE will keep government supercomputers busy for weeks and will keep the RIAA away from your Kazaa files.
With on board Intel PRO/1000 CT Desktop Connection Gigabit LAN, ABIT IC7-MAX3 users have overclocked LAN: Intel's PRO Gigabit LAN increases throughput by 50%, with real-world gains of up to 30%.
