Last week, we reviewed our first 865PE motherboard, the ABIT IS7. Assuming that most know what the 865PE chipset has to offer, we take a look at the Soltek SL-86SPE-L motherboard. This is a no nonsense board and lacks many features we have seen from other manufacturers. It still has all the latest technology like Dual Channel Memory and support for 800 MHz FSB CPU's at an affordable price. With that being said, let us move on to the specifications.
