interesting how only extreme and deluxe support SLI - seems the matx segment will belong to ATI.

after spending some time looking at them, its a smart layout. If i was to run three high end cards, i'd still have a PCI-E 1x slot free to use - and the bottom most slot ISNT at the very bottom of the board, so the card there wont be hitting the bottom of the case.


Only real flaw is the power and reset buttosn built in, are in a location impossible to reach once its installed in a case.

asrock are a division of asus, they're just the budget models (IMO, if i was going 'cheap' i'd rather midrange asrock than low end asus)

Well those are mostly for extreme overclockers and record breakers who don't use cases (ln2 pots, DICE and such)

my board has them too, at the bottom of the mobo where its possible to reach them in a case. Surprisingly enough, i use them fairly often when working on the system (CMOS clearing/resetting etc)

Hm, I've never used them, not once. Well, yeah maybe just once cause I wanted to turn it on that way instead of the normal way, but other than that... not twice :laugh:

That's all I use. Of course, my computer hasn't been in a case for like 2 years. (ever since the TEC meltdown.) lol

I'll never use a case in my workshop again. Once I used a tech station and saw how easy it was to switch things out and set up water cooling loops without modding cases, I swore I'd never use anything else. People say that a tech station will collect more dust. I disagree, and the dust is much easier to blow off..wow that was off the original topic. LOL.
