Part A: 1- A) A1: PCI Express Slot X4 A2: PCI Express Slot X16 B: PCI Slot X1 C: PCI Express Slot X1 D1: SATA3 0/1 D2: GSATA3

6/7 A1: TV Card A2: Graphic Card B: Modem C: Network Card D1: SATA Hard Disk Drive up to speed 6 Gbit/s. D2: SATA DVD Driver that support up to 6Gbit/s A1: Support PCIex1, x2 and x4 devices A2: Support x1, x2, x4 and x16 devices B: Support PCI X1 devices C: Support PCIeX1 devices D1: Support SATA devices. It is controlled by Intel Chip. Support Bandwidths of 1.5 Gbit/s, 3 Gbit/s and 6Gbit/s. D2: Support SATA devices. It is controlled by Gigabyte Chip. Support Bandwidths of 1.5 Gbit/s, 3 Gbit/s and 6Gbit/s.



Below list of Bandwidth for each standard: - PCI132 MB/s - PCI Express 1x250 [500]* MB/s - PCI Express 4x1000 [2000]* MB/s - PCI Express 16x4000 [8000]* MB/s
D) I- A1: Intel Z77 Chipset SATA3 6Gbit/s

A2: CPU B: Intel Z77 Chipset C: Intel Z77 Chipset D1: Intel Z77 Chipset D2: Marvell 88SE9172 Chipset II- A1: Connected using PCI Express Bus through a switch to Intel Chipset. A2: Connected using PCI Express Bus through a switch to CPU. B: Connected using PCI Express Bus through a PCIe to PCI Bridge, C: Connected using PCI Express Bus directly to Intel Chipset. D1: Connected directly to Intel Z77 Chipset. D2: Connected to Marvell Chipset then to Intel Z77 Chipset.

A) mini-PCI Express socket: Designed for: TV tuner or GPS Maximum Bandwidths: 2. B) This motherboard supports SD RAM only because SD RAM has two holes in it connection side while DDR has only one hole. PIN3: Sense. the fan is driven with a constant supply voltage.A) B) Part B: 1.1 only with maximum bandwidth of 480Mbit/s. 2This motherboard certainly belongs to Intel Corporate because it was the leading company in producing the server type. Y1: Supports USB2.0/1. And this model is the only model that contained two CPU sockets using the SDRAM technology for RAM memory. where the fan voltage is proportional to the speed.8 Gbit/s. PIN2:+12V.5 Gbit/s B) If I connected Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Card into the Mini PCIe Slot it will work because this card slot is mini PCIe. It is possible to connect this monitor to the motherboard using either the HDMI Port or the DVI Port because the monitor has these two interfaces that the motherboard supports. Memory type will be DDR3 and for two modules I will spend around 50$ with a bus of 1600MHz 4.0/2. 3. 3.A) B) PIN1: GND. The price would be around 160-180 $ American Dollars.1 with maximum bandwidth of 4. Unlike linear voltage regulation. This Motherboard supports CPU with PGA Socket. PIN4: Speed Control. the speed control is performed by the fan based on the control signal.3V in the fan.2.A) It might be possible because this motherboard is for server purposes so if someone has this old server working for a website for example or running .0/1.A) B) 5- 6. Y2: Supports USB 3. which requires a pull-up to 5V or 3. It is better to use the A2 Slot (PCIe X16) because it will give the best performance for the graphic card to operate due to its high bandwidth and graphic cards produce large amount of data so the more the bandwidth the better the performance. The sense pin is used to relay the rotation speed of the fan and the control pin is an open-drain or open-collector output.A) This motherboard supports two CPU's to be installed because this motherboard is for someone who needs faster processing like rendering or as a SQL Database for example.

. B) In part A the motherboard support a higher processor than this does even with 2 cores also the memory type because part A supports DDR3 which is the fastest module produced till now (There is DDR5 but I only have noticed it in Graphic Cards) also the internal bus speed. All these reasons make the motherboard in Part A better than this old one.some old design problem or maybe has a database that contains data from a long time so this is a possibility.
