Like me! Can stop staring at it.
Just to clear confusion - Actually there are capacitors, I've highlighted them in green. They are called High C-CAP.
MSI will use them too:
This mobo would be perfect for T77's rig.
Thanks for looking out Rad_Ed
Yes, this is the first fully black and orange board that is a match made in heaven for my case! I really want to go i7 as well, I'm gonna look into this right now.
Hi-C cap (tantalum cap) i think
closer image for ya
"They serve considerably longer than usual solid-state capacitors and possess very high conductivity because of low ESR. The fitness for work of Hi- c CAP capacitors in no way affect changes in the temperature. Capacitors Hi- c CAP has 8 times a more prolonged service period in the comparison with usual solid-state capacitors. , in addition, they possess 15 times smaller current leakage and are capable of working 16 years even at 85 degrees Celsius's temperature."
Can't wait too see the $$$$ might just be the time to upgrade
Stole the idea from MSI...Look for Hi-C cap...
Edit: Saw Swamp's post now.
MSI is already using them around CPU... Look for Military Class II
after reading that little linky about the hi-C caps, seems awesome.
rare metal means they wont end up on all boards, but they sound like a good investment for the high end boards.
Anyone got a link to the specs of this board? I want to prey on it
More details posted:
I love Gigabyte for x58. They were the most stable x58 boards I ever had, including th UD7, UD5, UD4 and EX58-Extreme. From what the UD7 went for, I'd bet this board will run close to $400. Out of my price range.
my housemate has the x58-UD5, and his has issues.
its STABLE, sure... but it took them months to make it compatible with G19 keyboards, its got nasty capacitor whine, and he cant enable EIST without heaps of issues popping up.
he may just have a bad board, but around here its very hard to RMA if the board boots to the OS.
very nice i love it and think god it not blue kind of sick of seeing them use the blue lol
Since no DFI Lanparty available I am looking at Gigabyte for my next MB build.
Looks solid on the performance with the 990x. Strange to see a MB without cylindrical caps.
Wow..this is the board for my case.
This color is quite different from any.
I like the looks, but I am thinking some cpu heatsinks might have trouble clearing the mobo heatsinks. They look tall!
