    Looks similar to the new X99 Gigabyte boards with all that plastic.

    Huh, decent looking board and kinda understated which is odd by Colorful standards. That's one heck of a nice VRM though!

    They've been releasing boards since LGA 775 and nForce day but, as they always been, exclusively to mainland China and Asia market.

    I like it when graphics card companies branch out, most of the times we have seen this happen was back when nvidia were building reference nforce boards like the 650 and 680 (EVGA, XFX, BFG and probably a few others were all selling identical boards for a while, though i think evga had previously built boards since nforce 3), Sapphire released a cool ATI chipset board with a white pcb around the same time too.

    Interesting to see someone new (to the west) build boards for the sake of it, not just due to ties with a GPU manufacturer building chipsets
