    Can you put percentage bars underneath the score fractions?
    With the old scoring system I could digest the verdict with glance, now I can't...
    While I understand the logic of the scoring system, it could be represented better visually.
    8am. Fractions...It is definitely a step backwards.

    CMOS battery perhaps?

    Nice board, but I wonder if removing the shroud would have let it hit that mystical 5GHz...

    Bah, should have mentioned that. It's a removable panel with a tiny 40mm (i think) fan mount and 3pin power header behind it. It allows you to add a fan to blow more air behind the shroud. The fan isn't included in the box.

    That hole is for a 40mm fan, it even has a connector to you connect the fan if u need extra cooling.

    I have mine like this

    And although the "armor" is closed all around (the only way to get air inside is really thru the cpu fan facing down), the chipset always remains at 28ºc.

    I had both boards, with this B2 error, I spent a little more and got the little update from the P8P67 to this Sabertooth, it's a good board, I only bought it because I wanted to use my wi-fi card and my Creative X-Fi Titanium (and my P8P67 didn't have enough pci-ex 1x, one got blocked by the gpu)

    If the shroud can be removed, can it be painted?

    It is for a 50x50x10 mm fan.

    Did you manage to fit all those cards without any problems ? If you have a photo please can you share, because I had some issues to install the extra cards.

    thx.

    +1 for percentage bars; if it aint broke, don't fix it... change for change's sake is not a good approach.
