    Wiggo actually answered this question already... but most of you seemed to have missed it.

    My Elsa Gladiac came with a little brochure that has various daughter cards that I could attach to those pins. The only one I found even remotely useful was a TV out 'daughter' card, but I have never seen one for sale.

    But as in the Woohoo5 Ad, "Feature connector for capturing dust particles and knuckle skin included at no extra cost.."
    Hahhaaha :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    The new ucfx Woohoo5 34500 AGP.

    So big, it's kind of ridiculous.

    zeradul you must run your intake fans with no filters for the pins to catch dust.

    eVGA used to sell a TV out daughter card that attached to an array of pins like that as well....

    It's cheaper for the manufacturers to put these on all boards than to manufacture only a certain number with them. It's cheaper for them to do it this way as they can change there ratio of models easily without havin' to worry about which main card production needs to be increased or decreased. :smokin:

    the point is to be able to add multiple options, but as i already said, they are rare and usually installed when the card is being made
