    FTW Edition is impressive! I'm glad to see they eliminate VGA. I hope other manufacturers replace all USB 2.0 with 3.0.

    This is the most awesomest mobo cooler I've seen ever. Really.
    But that only wont make me buy this mobo if the reviews are not right again...

    Loving the inclusion of a 6-pin PCI-E power connector to the edge of the board. Classy even has an additional SATA power connector to further offload the board's traces and ATX connector when going multi-VGA. Let's see how the boards do in practice, since they seem fine on paper (and images).

    Never been a particular fan of EVGA, but they're stepping up their game lately.

    Apparently their UEFI BIOSes are a mess except for the X79 Dark.

    So I guess we won't need a Z97 motherboard for the Braswell processors.

    Braswell is used in low power environments, like tablets and low power ultrabooks, you will definitely not going to be gaming on that thing...

    EDIT: is it just me, or does anyone else not like the bare metal caps just sticking out on a matte black pcb...? To me that looks ugly.

    I meant Broadwell though it was a bit confusing since there talk of a Haswell-refresh and all.

    Also the caps really stand out like sore thumbs. They should have painted them a dark grey.
