By placing the Floppy connector at the bottom of the motherboard Albatron avoids any possible collision with other drives or components. Thankfully Albatron bundles a two-port FireWire bracket since there isn’t any rear FireWire available , and this means that you don’t have to waste time and money buying one. It makes the motherboard installation very simple and it’s certainly much easier to work with when bent over an open case than a manual. Perhaps Albatron will include the additional two USB 2.
