    They look good?!

    Their Fatality series is horrible imo.
    I do like their design for their basic motherboards though.

    They might as well sell as many as they can now while there's still no competition because as soon as gigabyte and asus release theirs I doubt many will go for an asrock board, especially since asrock's prices aren't nearly as competitive as they used to be.

    Hideous looking colour scheme, even in a market that is known for them! Good news about IB being compatible with P67 though :)

    I will just say that for us, right now we have none planned afaik. Out of respect I won't comment on reasons why in a competitors discussion thread, but you can ask in the ASUS forum if you wish. :)

    I'm guessing it'll be a quite a while before pci-e 3.0 bandwidth becomes necessary.

    Look gorgeous! Seriously mobo makers, a big part of my motherboard buying decision is on the look of it.

    Looks like brass shells over regular caps.

    I see a molex power socket on all these boards, that'll make it a PITA for tidy cables especially where it's placed if it's necessary to use it anyway, maybe it's just for tri sli crossfire users?.

    Funky gold caps :D

    @waynio what do u expect Fatal1ty isnt know for its neatness nor its ability to be good. Its named after a idiot in gaming who touted his name like a prostitute.

    Can't believe they still want to use the Fatality-brand... It was lame already when it first appeared half a decade go, since then it's been used by Creative and Abit, and what good has it brought to them? Just ditch it ffs.

    Wonder if I can trade in my z68 extreme4 for a gen3, those things look awesome!

    Imagine one of those, a GTX 580 Phantom, and a black power supply in a RV03? NOMNOMNOM
