GIGABYTE has left no stone unturned during development of this board. The whopping 24 phases of power on tap for monstrous overclocking support is just the beginning.


Some of the initial eye catching features include the seven PCI-E x16 slots (given even more credit thanks to the implementation of not one, but two NVIDIA NF200 bridge chips), a water block on the Northbridge and super duper cooling system with large heatsinks, one of which is a monstrous detachable upstanding unit.
