I think it has six actually - I can only see four, and those are at the bottom right of the RAM slots. I can't see the other two, but I'm guessing that it might be them beneath the floppy connector facing sideways.
Thanks, you are right, there is 6. Everything is just black, hard to tell whats what.

Cool it looks but really, theres not much else that looks attractive in here. Nvidia MB chips are notorious for their heat and power consumptationt, looks like they are not going down with 780i, I mean that heatsink/fan is just sick!
The large northbridge is most likely due to the fact that is has to be big enough to cover both the Northbridge and the PCI-E 2.0 bridge.
