    ASUS' iconic Republic of Gamers series motherboards have a new member in its series: the G-Panel. This is an overclocking panel, a diagnostics display, and a fan-controller rolled into one. The device can be used outside a case, on a test-bench, or even its 2U design for fitting into cases, where it occupies two 5.25 inch drive-bays. French website Matbe caught a few glimpses of it at the CES event.

    The G-Panel provides an extensive feature set. To begin with, every diagnostic reading otherwise found in the system BIOS or high-level OC software is shown, that include clock-speeds, voltages and temperatures, all updated in real-time. The user can manage system overclocking using the panel's controls. Using the same controls, fan-speeds can be managed, as the device gives out four fan connections for case fans, in addition to all the fan-connections the motherboard provides. The G-Panel is compatible with select ASUS ROG series motherboards, though the exact compatibility list, availability and pricing are not known at this point.

    That makes me want to get another ROG type motherboard.. Once I get my Max board back from RMA, I'll be letting go of it..
    That's one sweet panel!

    Feature-wise sure, but when it comes to looks better add more chrome.

    I agree it could use a face lift. On the other hand it's not out yet and could be different when it does. I can't wait to find out more about this Item. If can help get a better more stable overclock I'm all in. I hope it is compatible with my RE. And it would be cool if it had an oscilloscope type function so you could visually adjust your overclock until the signals align right, or become in phase with each other.

    Very nice. But why chrome? Most computer cases seem to be black, if I wanted bling I would get hoopties for my car and some gold necklaces. It looks sleek and nice the way it sits.

    Impressive panel. Looks just fine to me, but if they "bling" it up I'm sure they'll sell more. :)

    Make it shiny, them computer folks sure do like them shiny things!:D
