    my god these chipset coolers are getting larger and larger lol soon water cooling will be mandatory for them lol, they need to really focus somehow on bring down the cooling requirements. ~_~ Although it does visually look sexy ^^

    Hopefully the price of X38 and 48s will drop significantly when this is released. I can't seem myself affording an i7 setup anytime soon.

    Thats off its head.
    But in the description it says.
    " Blue white and silver"
    But i see a bit of brownish/copperish a bit of yellow
    and a bit of red
    =]
    as xtrafresh said it would be awesome to see a white pcb one.
    I think someone once got a white pcb one from either MSI or something else i don't exactly remember.
    But it looked insane.

    The white pcb everyone vaguely remembers was (IIRC) an early Sapphire ATi board from the s478 days.

    That said, I think I'm looking at my next mobo (maybe 12-18months away yet for me).

    I remember the silver 'Dragon' PCB's from Soyo. Although not exactly white, it is close.

    I really like that Gigabyte is finally out of their Teletubbie phase and into a more mature motherboard styling. And the a good board layout with almost everything as we would like it. What I do not like are the IDE and 'getting really really useless" FDD connectors.

    Would I be seen as a weird person if I'd say that I want to have hot steamy motherboard blank with that?
