    As far as the looks go .. BLAH BLAH FLAPPING BLAH - I have never understood how something so extraordinarily irrelevant has ever had anything to do with high end hardware...

    GO buy a PS3 & glue some LED's to it if you're so vapid.

    BUT - As far as sooo many ram slots and SOOO many Sata Sockets goes? *Drool* I think I'm in love...

    Some slap a fan on the heatsink, some a magazine, what's next? A grenade? Rocket launcher? :laugh:

    Why do all XL-ATX motherboards still only have 7 slots? I thought their main advantage over ATX was their 9-slot length.

    What now? After unsuccessful 'political' sue on GIGABYTE, you just follow their moves. GREAT!
    I wonder what those board designers were thinking of? Being tough is not about how it looks but on how it performs. Pleaseeee.....get yourself some respect by not following others.

    well, at least if this motherboard fails you could take out those crayons and draw a picture of how big you think your penis is. Nice work MSI, you're aiming for the perfect market there ;)

    good overall layout , high quality components . That heatsink might look silly , but its not a dealbreaker imo . The board`s price is what concerns me , nerdy heatsinks just scream "overpriced" . I wish i wouldn`t have to sell my soul to own such a platform . Oh well .. moving on ..

    I agree, and if they had to steal something they could've stolen something worthy to :laugh:

    It may not have been the most thermally effective or aesthetically pleasing heastink, but it certainly was better than an ammo clip.

    Thing is because of the stupid design the cooling performance won't be good, it will be crippled.

    Now this isn't the best example, but just google image searched heatsink and it's one of the first results.

    That's how a heatsink should be designed surface area, and lots of it.

    That's how it dissapates heat, for what ever reason everyones moved onto massive blocks of shaped metal instead, sure they soak up a lot of heat but they hold on to it, it's stupid costs them more money and due to that costs us more money.


    Like a lot of other people I'd rather have a heatsink that performs better so I don't have to worry about cooling so much and I can overclock more.

    I agree pantherx12, it's just plain stupid to not maximize heatsink performance on high end motherboards.

    The X-Fi MB 2 solution is garbage. It's just a Realtek chip rebranded. You basically get a software volume knob from Creative and the audio still sucks. You still hear interference when you move the mouse.

    That's not a fault of the X-Fi solution...there are other boards with this problem that are not X-Fi, or Realtek. but yes, it is just a software package.

    Plug your headphones to the front-panel, not rear panel. The front-panel cable dampens all the electrical noise.
