GA-P35-DS4 Contents:

Included with the Gigabyte P35-DS4 was a ribbon IDE cable, ribbon FDD cable, four Serial ATA data cables, Intel processor installation guide, IEEE-1394 Firewire expansion slot header, I/O panel, Gigabyte sticker, Gigabyte driver CD, product manual, hardware installation guidebook, eSATA expansion slot header, eSATA data cable, and an external 4-pin molex to Serial ATA power adapter.
