    looks exciting
    I wonder if they will put these IR mosfets on AMD boards.
    Looks like they were emphasizing intel solutions.

    Looks beautiful. I would like to visit Computex and Taipei 101 at least once.

    I trust Gigabyte more than Asus. It only takes one high end Asus mobo to fail on you until you try another brand. I have to say, Gigabyte has extremely good customer service and they make superb mobo's.

    Been there before and it was awesome. Lots to check out and most of the stuffs are located at Nangang. If you visit some the other two places, there should be a free shuttle bus that takes you to Nangang. Too bad consumers can only visit on the last day (don't know if they changed it). Visitors must purchase tickets and be over the age of 18, I guess that's due to very expensive products, booth babes, and some male models.
    Taipei 101 is a fun place to visit too.

    Gigabyte boards seem pretty good - I have one in my desktop and the one time I had to user their customer service (a few broken CPU pins, maybe my fault), they were pretty good about things.

The motherboard bios do a cold boot(double boot) whenever I OC my cpu. I pick Asus for my 1155 setup because of BIOS reason.

    FTFY. There is a reason why things like printed circuit boards are made over-seas; it's cheaper usually and they actually are capable of the same quality level of manufacture that the U.S. is.
