Back in June we had looked at the Super Micro C2SBX+ motherboard, which was a workstation motherboard oriented around the Intel X48 Chipset. This was our first time reviewing a Super Micro product at Phoronix, but from the success of the C2SBX+ we decided to look at another one of their motherboards. This time around we have our hands on the Super Micro C2SEA, which is a desktop motherboard that uses the Intel G45 Chipset and provides integrated GMA X4500 HD graphics.

As we were receiving the C2SEA early on prior to Super Micro shipping this motherboard to retailers, our sample had arrived in a different box. However, the C2SEA that is now available for purchase will have a correctly labeled container that should look similar to this packaging. Included with the Super Micro C2SEA were a contents checklist, Super Micro system advertisement, user's manual, two Serial ATA data cables, I/O panel, driver installation CD, ribbon IDE cable, and a ribbon FDD cable.
