Jetway B860T Review

Adjoining the DOC socket are the first of
numerous motherboard headers:
We see a header for the 3rd and 4th USB ports,
though no cable is provided with the board. On its left is
a very useful header - COM2, the second serial port. Again
no cable is provided, but I imagine that a number of SFF case-modders
will be whooping with delight as this provides a means of
connecting case-mounted serial LCDs internally. This is a
feature that is lacking from current EPIAs.
Following the PCI slot up to the ports
area, we find a huddle of headers around the two rear audio
To the left of the jacks is a standard 4-pin
CD-in header. Under the second jack is 5-pin combined audio
in/out connector which duplicates the functionality of the
jacks - MIC in and line-out (stereo). These could presumably
be used to add extra jacks to the front of the case. Beneath
this header is a 4-pin stereo line-in connector.
If we now look at the opposite corner of the
board, we find another interesting header:
The centre pair of pins are labelled "LAN-LED",
and are used to show network activity when connected to a
case-mounted LED as mentioned in the
Cubid 2688 review.
The remaining headers on the board comprise 2 fan headers
and one for infra-red.
Finally, let's take a look at the ports:
The usual roundup of ports are found here,
though in a rather non-standard layout. From the left, we
have mouse + keyboard, LAN and 2 x USB, then serial,
VGA and parallel, followed by an S-Video TV-out connector
and finally line-out and MIC-in.
