If someone is dumb enough to fry both BIOSes on a motherboard that has two separate BIOS chips then they shouldn't be using a computer in the first place.

Be right at home in one of these:



I think I should just try and build an entire "military class/inspired" PC, just for fun. Wonder if I could pawn it off on someone on craigslist for a bundle

I actually like the color scheme. Lets see if they bring this to the AMD side.

Cute, but reading over the marketing, I can't help but draw mental comparisons to blurbs that advertise the use of "Aircraft Aluminum", as though that were somehow special. Wish they'd offer a little more info on the coating, though. Not quite sure how a coating both resists and dissipates heat at the same time, but at least it sounds more useful than half the crap that gets thrown on the high-end boards to justify their price premium.
