Not as if the colours that would stop me buying it even if it does look like they ran out of stock and used another colour.

Love the heatsinks on it they actually look like they would work but what would stop me buying it is that it don't have a pcix 1\4 above the top.

I have the same board but in P67 chipset, the P8P67 WS Revolution. It is the most spectacular and the most perfoming motherboard I've ever worked with.

You can't have a better motherboard than Asus Workstation series.
