What is Serillel ATA?
ABIT Serillel ATA is a cable set up that enables users to connect parallel HDDs to the serial ports on the new ABIT MAX 2 series of motherboards.

With ABIT Serillel ATA, MAX 2 users will continue to have more options to expand their system, allowing for ultimate flexibility. Not only are your hard drive options expanded, the new Serillel cables are cool in more than one sense; these new Serial ATA cables are thin, discrete, and will help keep your system temperature down, even better than the sometimes problematic round cables. In addition to better cooling, Serillel ATA cables also provide for a data transfer rate of 150 Mb/s.

While every other motherboard manufacturer has included Serial ATA on their latest products, ABIT users demand more: that's why ABIT has enabled Serial ATA RAID on the new MAX 2 series of motherboards. Serial ATA RAID is accomplished through the use of the advanced Highpoint 374 RAID controller, giving users maximum flexibility to simultaneously increase the speed of data transfers between HDDs and protect precious data. What's more, with ABIT's Serillel cables, users can run any combination of serial and parallel drives in RAID, allowing them to experience serial ATA RAID right now, not 6 months from now.
