    Some VRM cooling and a fan on the chipset cooler and it ready to go.

    i5, I don't like the layout of this board tho. Cluttered and really small.

    First off, why would you need chipset cooling? It's a fr**cking southbridge.

    ShadowFold, i think the layout is pretty neat. Everything is where it should be.
    But since it's a pre-production board (rev 0.3), the layout still can change.
    And really small? What do you mean? It's a full-ATX board, can't get any bigger than this.

    The 1st and 2nd pci-e slot is better though (for your taste, not tight like DFI's).
    :laugh:

    And why they always use pink? :wtf:
