Asus' Sabertooth P67 Mobo Has a Tactical Vest

Asus revealed some of its upcoming motherboards and one of them in particular caught our eye.

It's an upcoming P67 that'll support Sandy Bridge CPUs, and it has what Asus calls the "Tactical Vest."

The official marketing name for it is the Sabertooth P67, and that Tactical Vest "sheet" on top of the components forces cool air from CPU and case fans towards critical parts all over the motherboard via a proprietary shunt design. Asus also points out that it covers most of the motherboard to shield it against heat generated by connected components such as graphics cards.

Clearly, keeping temperatures down is a big focus for the company. The Sabertooth P67 also has multiple sensors embedded throughout parts of the motherboard that provide accurate temperature readings that the motherboard uses to automatically adjust CPU and case fan speeds.

In any case, the Sabertooth P67 is one slick looking motherboard that'll fit dress codes where jackets are required.

Groan.

    Well at least now when you drop your screwdriver into your case, while installing PCIe cards, you can be sure that you're not going to scratch up the PCB tracks, on your motherboard. That alone makes this a good idea.

    Rather cool, I say. Looks sharp.

    Looks cool (no pun). Curious how effective it is or is it simply a marketing ploy.
