    That is the best looking full board block they make, and as noted above by SystemViper, no circles, thank god. Now if Asrock could work the bugs out of this board, you'd have something special.

    I wish EK would make block for more popular boards like the MSI Mpower, Asus's ROG and TUF

    It looks cool, im sure it is cool, but I am not sure it will help an overclock.

    I am not the target market as I would not be buying a $400 motherboard... but if I was and were to get this board I would totally get this.

    I just slammed a tiny Noiseblocker on my chipset heatsink and over the mosfet cooler. It seems to do the job perfectly :D

    ya that was the reason I didn't go with them on one of my last builds, and then it was the circles... hope they can produce some clean blocks that are also not riddled with some issue

    Holy SATA slots batman!

    Bad ass board, and awesome block. Looks like the board doesn't have the chocolate colored PCB this time. Nice work AsRock.
