    I like the black scheme, though the lower end motherboards are still going to be their current baby blue scheme. I would have thought Gigabyte's P6x series would all be black.

    Don't like the dark colour scheme, Gigabytes blue + white is fresh, clean and easily identifiable.

    Don't like the S-ATA placement



    Full ATX layout is un-necessary? Could get everything comfortably into a matx form factor?

    Pink is an idea ..

    For be honest, when build, the blue is not so bad ... But the black is better

    anyway
    I m affraid the 2 last SATA will be condamned by a long card ( 5870 -5970 ) ...
    They should have put them at 90°C --- But well that's just the entry level

    that is a strange low-mid end board. gigabyte continues to be a bit schizo.

    its got a fancy color scheme, sata3, and usb3 onboard...
    but then they've got small pcie ports and have skimped on the back ports. those blocks of 2 usb can hold 4 usb. and there is only one nic.

    if you are going to get such a ty atx board you probably only need a matx board, don't you

    but then you're stuck, because most matx boards are even tier, with crippled back ports because of the waste of space video outputs

    Wow, the layout of the mATX version is just FANTASTIC! It allows us to use a high-end VGA, a pci-e sound card and a low-end VGA for physx, yeah! Now lets just hope they bring a higher-end one on the mATX factor and Ill be set.

    Nice sata port placement....NOT! PCI slots....? At least the IDE is off the board and I do like the color change very much.

    I need at least one PCI slot so I'm glad those stays. Wonder what color they'll try next time.

    Come on, how many boards have more than 10 USB on the back?
    And it's a UD3R, no one can expect dual NIC.

    Why is it so hard for Gigabyte to create a good PCIe/PCI layout.
