After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Included Goodies

    In keeping with the mainstream nature of the PURE Innovation 780V you will not find a large variety of connections on the backpanel connector.  2 Video ports access the onboard video controller, 4 USBs can be found here, there are 4 more found at the bottom of the motherboard under the last PCI slot.  Onboard Ethernet, and  3 audio connections for up to 6-channel audio.
    Included goodies are minimal and include a driver disk, manual, SATA cable, IDE cable and backplate cover.
    The manual is very informative and covers everything you will need to get things installed and working properly.
