leet cooling is always nice, as is the inclusion of both DDR2 and DDR3 slots, but that layout is a bit pointless :/

Being an MSI Diamond series board I would expect that it should be a pretty decent board

Usually the "transition" boards are made by relatively off-brands

What's the point of all the PCI-E x16 ports, and only one PCI port?! :\ Wouldn't be so bad if device manufacturers would finally move on to PCI-E. And also, are there any pics of the I/O panel at the back?

Yes, but I'm interested in how they're laying it out. Oh well, guess I'll have to be patient and wait for more pics

Ah, PS2, Firewire, two eSATA and S/PDIF with four USB above like the P35 Platinum we reviewed, then four more USB each with two RJ45 above and finally 6 3.5mm audio jacks.

I dont mind the layout at all, it's pretty clean although I see issues with the IDE port and my reservoir.

Having an Nvidia GPU with the intension of going SLi I will be waiting for Nvidia's response.

That's just silly, why has there been an increase upto now with the SATA ports, and now it drops?

We chose to make the words that are there very important though. Think of the extra 1000 words in the picture as supplementary.
