    I won't mention the colour scheme. ;)

    Do we have a spec sheet with this, obviously it's going to be slightly different as I presume it's a lower end X58.

    Hence why I've asked about the specification. These PCIe slots could be 2 x 16 or 2 x 8. They may have compromised something

    Damn right!

    None of the X58 chipsets are low-end mainboards.
    X58 chipset IS an high-end chipset for motherboard, just like X48...

    Why is everyone putting the 3rd PCI-E x16 slot so close to the bottom, where you are going to have to use a water cooling or find a card with single slot!!!

    Wow, the rest of the parts of that PC would definitely make it a super computer lol, you crazy guy with the everchanging rig. Wait a sec, you have an x58 board anyway, why do you need another?

    Or just skip having a case altogether, like me. lol.

    Anyway, it's an ASRock, I wouldn't buy it. The hardware is probably quality, but I bet the BIOS support and OCing are shit.

    cant you guys bitch about something thats performance related? pink and green has never impacted the boards performance whatsoever.
