And yet another motherboard that has a terrible slot layout. When are these motherboard companies gonna get the clue. Why place so many of the PCI-e x16 slots next to each other? If they are worried about people not being able to use the PCI slots, then just have them arranged like the Crosshair IV extreme or the MSI 790FX-GD70. Oh yeah, the whole wasted PCI-e x1 slot is retarded too. Asus has started moving away from it and Gigabyte seems to be the only major mobo maker who is sticking with it. It is just dumb to arranged the heatsink and that PCI-e x1 slot that way.
