Although, granted it really isn't much more expensive than the m4a79t board. I picked up my m4a79 Deluxe off newegg for $135 open box. It is great, although one out of the two right angled sata ports has serious issues with it (and no I/O shield of course). Still worth it though.
Edit: what is that cable coming off the northbridge cooler and plugging into the board? Is that a fan? (I hope not 'cause the 790FX chipset has not ever needed active cooling IMHO).
ROG logo lights up. as for M4A79T vs this mobo big thing right out of the box is no vdroop with the crosshair and no pci-e switch which means better overclocking
