Included with the Tyan Tomcat i945GM (S3095) motherboard was the usual assortment of accessories we have been accustom to seeing with other Tyan motherboards -- such SATA power and data cables, jumper sheet, and expansion slot brackets. Also included with the motherboard was an expansion slot sound card bracket, which connects to the motherboard's PCB. There are two models for the i945GM: the S3095G3NR and S3095G3NR-CF -- the latter model supports an onboard Compact Flash connector.
