Am I Gonna Have Problems With It?

Perhaps the greatest concern for anyone purchasing a new super7 mainboard is whether or not your existing or upgrade hardware is going to function properly.  While we don't have the budget required to test across a wide variety of components, this was one mainboard we felt it was important to plug as much as possible into, to see if there were any incompatibilities.

I am extremely happy to report that everything we tried worked without a hiccup. While super7 mainboards have had, for the most part, troubles with graphics cards, this is sure not to be a problem with the graphics controller onboard.  The same goes for the onboard sound chip, although we did disable the onboard sound and popped in a few popular sound cards just to be sure.  In order to pass our compatibility test, the system had to correctly identify the component if it was plug n play, and then load its drivers without causing visible conflicts in either Windows 98's System Information utility or the Device Manager.  Then the functionality of the component was confirmed by actually using it for the purpose it was ascribed.
