I'm surprised it doesn't have one of those horrible Houston Tech CMOS/RTC chips :)

hehe. You'd reckon they only relabel the PC Chips boards that actually have one of those BS thingies on them then?

My ATX form card also has some R/C decoupling to prevent RF emission by the look of it, plus the odd inductor and power smoothing cap, but nothing fancy. In principle you should be able to build your own cables.
