Albatron has a pretty good board design here with a few small areas
1. The floppy connector is placed underneath the bottom PCI slot
making cable routing difficult and obstructing airflow.
2. The ATX Power connector is in a poor position at the far upper
right of the board where it could interfere with CD drives. It is
also separated from the 12V 4-pin power connector which makes for
a messy cable configuration.
The good part is that the K8X800 Pro II has an excellent, though
small, copper heatsink on the northbridge which does a good job at
keeping the temps down.
Also unlike some boards at this price level the K8X800 Pro II has
three Ram slots not two.
Albatron also ships this board with an AMD 64 HSF mounting bracket
that is missing from some board packages.
The connectors for the power switch, reset, LED's, and speaker are
all at the bottom of the board which makes cable routing simple and
Albatron also chose to deviate from the green PCB that most manufacturers
use. The Blue board and Northbridge heatsink will look great in any
case with a window.
