There's something about this board, I find it quite striking. The gourdy colours of old are a distant memory, replaced with the pale blue and white, with a sensible layout, which is impressive with the amount of features GIGABYTE adds to their boards.
The power and reset buttons are situated to the right of the memory slots. I much prefer this position over having it situated below the bottom PCI-e slots on other boards.
Seven PCI-e slots ready and waiting to be populated by the top graphics cards of today.
Very similar to the other high end GIGABYTE boards, with the same abilities to power and/or charge certain external devices.
The board comes with the usual assortment of accessories, manuals, driver disk, I/O shield, assortment of leads, SLI and Crossfire bridges, including and most important, both a three way and four way SLI bridge.
