this is not a board for web browsing, this is a board to break records
Actually I consider myself a fairly attentive person, although you may wish to re-read what I typed earlier with a little more care. I stand by what I said - this board isn't giving anything new - we've already got the Classified available to us, and it already covers the good points of this board, including the power circuits and the twin 8-pin power plugs. If you have corrosion problems in the socket area, you should probably do a better job of insulation. I fully appreciate the Classified, it's this iteration of the board that I find a little ridiculous.
