Guys from PC Stats have reviewed the Albatron PX845E i845E Silver Motherboard :
According to Albatron, the coating on this motherboard is actual silver. Not silver colour, but the actual metal suspended in a binding agent. The apparent benefits of this are thermal dissipation for board mounted components, and increased EMI shielding. Albatron claim that in their own testing, on average a board with this silver coating produces 47% less EMI emissions than a non-coated motherboard.

Based on the i845E chipset, the Albatron PX845E supports both 400MHz and 533MHz Pentium 4 processors with up to 2GB of PC1600/2100/2700* DDR RAM (*unofficially supports PC2700). The PX845E shown here itself is basically a no frills solution - which just 5.1 audio (AC'97 codec) audio and a Smart Card and Memory Stick reader to mention. The "Pro II" variant comes with all the extra stuff, in case you need it
