It's actually surprising that motherboard makers haven't made more boards with this color scheme, considering all the white cases out there.

Yes, the audio is greeting card quality (Realtek ALC892, 89 dBA SNR). Don't buy this board for its audio.

Nice board, its basically the MSI Z97-G55 board in a sense comparing the specs together wit ha different color scheme. Not bad if they keep the price low enough I would consider this as a great recommendation for people looking for a lot of bang to buck.

Plus black and white color scheme looks nice!
