Even though Iwill is a Taiwanese motherboard manufacturer (imagine that!), they had enough of a command of the English vocabulary to coin their cute slogan, "Make things happen." Think about for a second, then chuckle. The first impression I got from their LE370 box was one of bemusement, as it depicted an astral scene with two space ships jetting through the deep void. As little as this did for my expectations, I was nevertheless interested in testing out their PPGA socket-370 motherboard, the LE370.
Several of the FS staff had limited experience with Iwill motherboards (mostly on the dual-processor server side), but it didn't surprise me to hear of their limited US mindshare; they do appear to have a larger market share overseas however. Iwill has been around in the hardware manufacturing business for some 10 years now, quite a long time in the PC hardware industry. Their claim to fame was in the SCSI market, where they are recognized in manufacturing as well as R & D for SCSI motherboards and I/O adapters.
The LE370 looks like it's a pretty well-stacked motherboard. On paper, it has some solid features and specs. Of course, today's readers are a little too skeptical of purely empirical evidence. So, withoutfurther ado, let's take a look at the features and specs of the Iwill LE370!
