Included with the LANPARTY 925X-T2, we found a wide variety of items meant to appeal to LAN gamers who frequently move their systems from one location to another, or just like to show off its internals. Included with the board itself, we found a rounded 80-Wire IDE cable, a single rounded floppy cable and two red SATA cables. We also found a single Dual-SATA-to-Molex power adapter, a case bracket outfitted with a single serial port, and an IDE-to-SATA interface adapter.  There is also a detailed Quick Reference poster and three user's manuals included with the 925X-T2 in addition to a DFI case badge, a large "LANPARTY" decal, and a custom I/O shield. Driver floppies and a driver CD-ROM are also bundled with the board as well, along with a UV reactive cable sleaving kit.  Lastly, DFI included a set of FrontX Multimedia ports, that bring audio, SATA, and USB connectors, and four diagnostic LEDs to the front of a system, and a "PC Transpo" that makes carrying a system and its accessories much easier.  The "PC Transpo" wraps around any tower case, making it much easier to transport between locations.
