Browsing the specifications reveals more information on some of the impressive features, but raises one question for me. Where is the 1394A (Firewire)? I have had only one motherboard with Firewire, and its availability was enough to convince me to get an external Firewire drive enclosure. The drive has gone unused for a while now as I wait to get yet another board that actually includes Firewire onboard. As we will see later in the review, Firewire could be an option, as the board has locations for headers, they just weren't included (as is the case on many boards).
