BIOS - BIOS archive for the FA15T v1.2 board. You can also download them here.
Docs - Official CPU support documents for the FA15T v1.2 board.
Drivers - Drivers regarding the FA15T v1.2 board, mostly sound drivers. Vinyl v7.00b. This should fix an annoying issue involving choppy/glitchy sound in Windows XP [which is present in the Microsoft drivers!], although it is also for earlier Windows versions. There are other sound drivers, but this is a later release. --CDPro coming soon!--
Manual - Motherboard's user manual for the FA15T v1.2 board.
Pics - Pictures of the FA15T v1.0 and v1.2 board. The v1.2 board has the speaker connector present, whilst the v1.0 does not. Otherwise, they are the same. -- Tracking the original site that had the v1.2 mainboard scan was tricky, but I finally found it: here. It is the fourth board listed there.
Utils - Different Award BIOS Flash versions for an Award-based board. This should also apply to the A-trend board on link M3 of the Tech Page section.
Web - Forum archives regarding the Intel motherboard USB header and connector. You need to read this motherboard's manual and the case's manual, if any, in order to determine the correct connections for this board, if the header follows Intel standards. This also applies if you are going to install a USB card reader that uses the Intel connector. It is clear that it does not follow Intel standards, so this may be useful to you.
