    Yeah I was going to ask whether you got a goody bag at the end.

    Very interesting read, do they actually test every single board with the processes shown on page 5? I always assumed it was sample based so all would get a once over and 1 in 10 would get fully tested or something.

    A multi-colour model of the site? Who would've thought it - Gigabyte and loads of unnecessary colours added just for the heck of it

    It's a really interesting read, I'm trying to learn more about the hardware in a PC and that really helped.

    I read a similar article somewhere showing Gigabyte's factory and motherboard manufacturing process.

    Thanks for the latest one.

    So, to everyone, be careful with your hardware. A lot of effort goes into making them.
