The Foxconn board comes with a suffice bundle.  It should have more SATA cables, as it only comes with one and one power adaptor.  It also comes with an IDE and floppy cable, a firewire/USB header, as well as a backplate, documentation and a driver and apps cd.

Vcore is set in a very strange way on the Foxconn P35A-S board.  I am not sure why they did it this way, but it is selectable from default up to +0.7875 Volts in .0125v increments.

Vdimm is a little more, ok, a lot more, straight forward, and gives the user up to 2.34v, which is not very high compared to some of the other boards we have looked at.
