SLI motherboards tend to draw a little more power than usual, and so there is an effective warning to that end on the main pin ATX power connector. Other motherboards have just as many USB ports overall but what good are they if they require a bracket which takes up a valuable expansion slot?

The tiny PCB’s are hard to align on the other boards and the holding mechanisms are not always easy to negotiate. Don’t let the unnecessarily awkward name put you off, though. Other motherboards have just as many USB lahparty overall but what good are they if they require a bracket which takes up a valuable expansion slot?
Voltage, fan status, and temperature monitoring. This board edge location keeps bulky cables away from the CPU and memory.
The DFI LANParty NF4 SLI-DR – Legit ReviewsIntroduction

That’s an understandable strategy given the nForce4 SLI’s rough feature parity with its successor, whose extra PCI Express lanes convey few real-world performance benefits.
Rounding things off are a pair of standard PCI slots.
