The Advantech AIMB 564 uses the Intel LGA 775/ Socket T CPU socket. Any compatible Intel CPU will have the same socket entry. It uses the aging DDR2 memory type, with maximum speeds of up to 800 MHz, and 4 DDR2 slots allowing for a maximum total of 8 GB RAM. DDR2 memory is exceptionally out of date, and considering how cheap DDR3 RAM is, using a motherboard with only DDR2 compatibility in a modern system build would be a very bad idea.
Conforming to the ATX standard, the Advantech AIMB 564 should fit into the majority of cases. ATX is the most common form factor, and as such has a high degree of compatibility with other components while providing a decent number of slots to widen your expansion options.
The Advantech AIMB 564 has 7 SATA 2.0 hard drive slots. These allow for data speeds of up to 3GB/s. SATA 2.0 is a very common standard, and despite the emergence of SATA 3.0 - whose potential is difficult to reach currently - SATA 2.0 remains a viable option.
The Advantech AIMB 564 supports onboard graphics. This allows for integrated graphics when paired with a compatible CPU that supports them. Integrated graphics are a cheap alternative to using a graphics card, but should be avoided when frequently using modern applications or games that require intense graphical processing. There are 0 PCIe x16 slots on this motherboard. This means a graphics cards will have to be placed in a smaller PCIe slot, which will significantly and detrimentally affect its performance potential, limiting it to the bandwidth of that particular slot. In addition, the graphics card interface revision should be as close as possible to the motherboard's Not sure graphics card interface in order to maximize the potential of both the motherboard and the graphics card. The Advantech AIMB 564 does not support multiple graphics cards via Nvidia SLI or AMD Crossfire.
