    I'd rejoice when TPower makes a comeback.

    Is it just me or does Biostar's name conjure the image of poorly made products? I may just be thinking of their cheaper stuff, I dunno if this is different.

    Apart from the gaudy expansion/memory slot colour scheme, the TPower series is barely poorly made. They use the highest grade VRM in the industry, Intel GbE, most OC options, etc. I can agree about TSeries being cheap looking.

    The TP67XE is like the king of 1155 boards in the $100-200 range. I wish I had gotten it instead of my EVO. Looking at those sinks I'm betting you can even pry off those wings to not only improve cooling but improve the appearance as well, has a cool wiggly thing going on. If they have a X79 equivalent I might be switching brands.

    Yes. I was talking about TPower, not this (TSeries).
