Nothing a backing plate won't fix. In fact, considering the larger socket area, that's more leverage against the socket area, so a backing plate is going to be even more important with these boards.

*Insert typical comment on Gigabyte colour scheme here*. Overall, looks quite interesting, although the waterblock has a sort of cheapish look to it, and I'd rather the center chipset block have some fins to improve air cooling a little more.

I was taken back by Gigabyte's statement that this board won't have Raid but I guess they meant the 'Gigabyte' raid (ie. Silicon Image) and not the Intel Southbridge Raid (Ichr10)
