    mmmm DFI I mean Gigabyte. Definitely an OC board though with the lack of rear I/O components and all the purty buttons;) If i had loot for a toy, I would ponder this.

    Why do the heatsinks have PWR connections? Fans, TECs, what?
    EDIT: just read they are for LED lighting.

    by the look of the wires, they're probably for LEDs...

    What are the ATX4P sockets on the outside of the SATA ports?

    Bottom right are buttons, or voltage measure points, depending on what you're asking about.

    And W1zz needs to call up the TPU lawyers again...our logo is the power button.

    Orange is the word!!

    This board + Xigamtek Achilles S1284W + Crucial Ballistix RAM Kit + 2x Zotac GTX560Ti or GTX460 AMP! or GTX480 w/zalman personalized cooler = Very good looking setup.
    Too bad Zotac can't come up with a GTX570/580 with a cool looking dual-slot cooler, so that one could make 4-way SLI. This graphics solution doesn't OWN or PWN, I know, but it's the best I could come up with. Better ideas are welcome. :)

    i dont know about all the types of caps to make the same claim, its possible this is just a design and they havent put them on yet.

    I'm waiting for everything in a PC to have super flat componants.

    That way heatsink design is much easier so better heatsinks, yay!

    I like the look of this board a lot :p
