There are two Gigabit LAN ports, six USB ports, a FireWire port, an eSATA port, and a PS/2 mouse port. That's right...the ancient PS/2 keyboard port is no more! So if you are buying this Top-of-the-Line motherboard you will need to get rid of your crusty beige keyboard from the 1990's.
I may be wrong here.... but in your review (posted above) you state that the PS/2 port for the keyboard is gone on the board? isnt the PURPLE PS/2 the keyboard port... the GREEN PS/2 is mouse is it not? As i said i may be wrong =)

Cool, thanks. I kind of gave up at about the 600-mark, but I guess I'll have to buckle down and read the rest of that thread through after all.

You are correct, I was sure I had fixed that mistake, but I guess not

So if you are buying this Top-of-the-Line motherboard you will need to get rid of your crusty beige ball mouse from the 1990's. We feel your pain, honestly.


That dealt with, looking at the corresponding picture... is the motherboard bowing a little? While the motherboard is obviously working just fine, what are the odds that those mosfet heatsinks would benefit from a backing plate?
