    I'm sure the Gigabyte marketing department will thank me when I say... "that's a hell of a board."

    No seriously, it looks engineered well enough to run in a high temperature, high load PC environment, which is what the board is intended to do with 3 video card slots, correct?

    Proper power connector placement, low profile assembly, ample room for the Noctua UP12 HSF (As if you would use anything else), no crowding the RAM for potential RAM cooling. Even the USB ports look like you can access them easily when the system is loaded...see, you insert half of them edge on, the other half perpendicular. All bases are covered. I notice all that from the picture!

    Damn! I saw "Scott" and "Texas" and my heart skipped a beat before "Garland" could register.
