    Kudos to those who can name the hardware in the pic!

    Looking at my system specs is cheating!

    BTW, this color is called Lemon Chiffon ROFL

    you better had removed your system specs.... everyone can see its a gtx 570, a set of ridgebacks, and a 1090T, on a Crosshair IV Formula plus a Thermaltake Frio:p

    EDIT:
    Very funny, experimenting with Text colors :D

    Looks like a very nice board!

    I just got a new toy in. Going to either sell it on here, or use it. Pics coming in a little bit.

    I wanted a cheap X58 motherboard for my i7 920 cruncher that has been sitting around since I replaced it with another i7 970. I had a ASRock X58 Extreme last year and it did the job. Not going to push this board to hard at all as it is just going to be a dedicated crunching rig:)

    I'm guessing it has a large shroud on it typically?

    No idea. I've got the stock 970 heatsink on and it sucks balls. Idle is nearly 10º higher over the CM212+. It gets super hot, super fast. The fan spins so freakin fast but the fin spacing is so tight no air gets through. Lame...

    whoops forgot that I've got a new Heatsink(x2 actually) and pair of fan controllers to play with :)

    It typically does have a large shroud on it.

    This is a pretty big hint:

    I was going to guess something Thermalright, but I don't remember one with a shroud, off to google I go.

    V6 GT?

    Outfitted with Arctic Cooling PWM fans. White sleeving is on the way for them!

    Edit: Thermaltake Frio on the left, Coolermaster V6GT on the right:

    I'm getting about 1-2C lower idle temps with the V6GT. Looks like the Frio will be up on BST soon.
