    In all honesty who cares about firewire?? I ouwl suspect most normal users wont have a clue what its about or its intended use. I have used firwire one to setup a firewire network to see how good it was and then just went back to ethernet.

    Otherwise nice board and good review

    Yeah, firewire seems to be less used now then a few years ago and it wasn't used much then.

    Looks a tidy board, might even make a nice budget "bling pc" with a windowed case and some lighting on that heatsink

    Can honestly say I have never used a Firewire port. I like cases without them on the front panel, it just offends me having it there un-used!

    Never used eSATA for that matter either, USB2.0 and now 3.0 has always been fine for my needs, I never seem to move large volumes of data on/off machines to external storage, it's always across networks - I've been running Gigabit at home for as long as I can remember, since it became affordable pretty much. I'd rather see better quality ethernet chips on boards than extra USB3.0 chips (2 ports for storage is fine, a keyboard/mouse is NEVER going to need that bandwidth!) or Firewire, one of the main reasons I went for the Asus P8Z68 is the Intel NIC, much better than Realtek or Marvell.

    I suspect most normal users won't be buying a premium board though. They'd be using a more budget-orientated board, unless they've more money than sense.

    While I don't use firewire often (I only use it for transferring video from an HD video camera to a PC for editing) I think it's unforgivable not to have it on an £85 top-end board, or at the very least having a header on the board.

    Ok but wouldnt it also increase the board cost as I dont believe the chipset/liano has native firewire support so you would have to include a firewire chip, internal wiring to a header etc all more cost on a already (for liano) expensive board ??

    All my recent motherboards have had firewire ports but I have never used them. I would like to see them get rid of firewire (IEEE 1394) ports, serial ports, parallel ports, & PATA ports and put something useful in their place.

    How much can it add? £5 tops (most of which will be licensing). They'll have paid that much coming up with the curves needed for the extravagant heatsink designs...

    They've got two premium ATX boards now. Why not differentiate one board with some features which actually appeal to pro users?

    As above, haven't used firewire port since my old DV camcorder - which is over 5 years ago. Only time I've ever used firewire.

    Can't understand the full size ATX board , surely anyone in this market is looking to build a compact or smallish PC. Also internal USB 3 header seems in the way compared to the 990 series motherboards Asus have released.
