    No that's the SATA power. I guess it doesn't. It has some heat sink where it would be

    M7G baptized with vaseline in preparation for LN2 benching

    Once BBSE cleared the rest will follow

    M7G dram layout changed from previous gen. M6G which more on 4 dimms performance.
    This time around M7G dram performance will sit in between 2 dimms and 4 dimms

    M7I next..

    Condensation due to heat is like sweating due to hard work. I can just think about a construction worker on hot summer day covering himself with Vaseline so he don't sweat. Totally gay and a mess to clean after. :p How do you think to remove it afterward?

    No, not like that.

    Condensation due to evaporation of Liquid Nitrogen (LN2). An extreme form of CPU cooling that takes the parts to sub zero temperatures. Used commonly in overclocking and benchmark competitions.

    Alcohol. Which dries clean, rather than other stuff that can be really hard to remove. Tip the top of an LN2-filled tube, and you've got an avalanche of little bits of water all over your board. Nevermind the front that forms form the board itself being cold. Hence my comment about needing surgical removal from "skiing". Wet boards suck.

    You can also just toss a board into a dishwasher to get clean.

    Not really sure. Scrub it down with some rubbing alcohol?

    @dumo or @cadaveca can answer that one.

    EDIT: damn Dave is a quick one.

    I use this spray to clean it up after heat up the board with hair dryer/heat gun so the vaseline liquefied.

    Heavy coat of vaseline needed especially for subzero benching in high humidity east coast summer months. In winter time when humidity and ambient room temp are low, light coat should be suffice since it tends to become solid (when board is idle) and will act as a non conducive to some of pcb traces/contacts like memory slots

    I was going to say any electronics cleaner will do. You can even run it in the dishwasher. Just let it dry for a week afterwords

    These new over-priced over-hyped cut-down Z97 boards are not too impressive. :(

    Back to my good ol' Asus Maximus VI Extreme... :)

    Nice de-lid CPU. :p

    Maybe GAMING9 gets close to VI Extreme, but maybe that's reserved for new X-Power. I am not sure. GAMING7 = GD65, so no surprise you like VI Extreme more. :p LoL @ compare $400 board to $250 board.

    heh.

    The Black Edition? I got one as well, posted a pic a page back or so. I haven't had time to play with it, kinda eager to try my 3x780TI in that one, TBH. I got a few board reviews waiting to go live now, few more to do yet, the Black Edition will be my last, 4 board's out yet. Since it's Black version of G.1 Sniper5, I do not expect more than that board gave, really. I still have that one sitting here too.

    I hear where you are coming from though...some boards...EXCELLENT...some..>WTF did they do? I think we see eye-to-eye on this more than you might suspect. :p

    MSI has done a good job of sending me that right boards "for me", if you know what I mean, I like what I got from them... a lot.

    Indeed the G1 Gaming Black Edition. TBH looks more like 200 euro motherboard. When I compare to old UD7 TH for example. :)

    Yap, there is great divide between gaming and OC right now. To me, this is a good thing. These users need different stuffs.

    When you compare the new UD7 TH to the old UD7 TH, it gets even worse.

    Also none of Gigabyte models, not even the most expensive ones, have a second internal USB 3.0 pin header (unlike their higher end z77 and z87 models).

    Got my replacement Phenom II X4 980BE yesterday. They gave me a brand new sealed boxed processor. Took just 5 days including shipping. Epic service!

    Anyone knows how the FPM batch is for Phenom II X4?
