    Whatever it is the colour scheme is a bit on the OTT side.

    Why do they have motherboards with such garish colour schemes.

    Would it be too hard to use colours that compliment each other ?

    The one with the quad everything, and a large number of Ss (SLI, Silent, etc.), whatever is fashionable in Giga-byte marketing these days.

    colours = gigabyte standard mobo colours and copper cooling. copper and blue don't exactly look good together but i couldn't give a monkeys how it looks as long as it performs. always found gigabytes excessive power stuff to not work though. the budget boards always seem to last way longer than those dual power boards with 3 phase on a daughter board. at least they've done away with that design.

    12 phase sounds ott, also the solid state capacitors that can't leak(like 99.9999999999999% of liquid ones don't) sound not worth an extra $20 per board. but maybe this will be the only board that will pass validation for the quad core conroe's which aren't allllll that far off.

    I actually prefer these flat capacitors and would happily pay an extra 20-30 pounds per board if they replaced all caps with these.

    The reason - no fear of leaking and catching them when "tweaking" after a few beers and also cooling these would be easier as the airflow would not be hindered by caps in the way.

    Agreed. I hate having to be so careful around the caps, and I can just imagine myself knocking one off one day.
    I've had leaking caps in the past too, and would gladly pay an extra $20, as although I upgrade fairly often, my boards stay in service for a fair few years.

    Agreed, I dont think I've manged to break one (well beyond needing a reset) and I'm a heavy handed moron

    Back on topic, I can tell you it's a gigabyte. I dont pay much attention to newer mobos unless I'm about to buy one
