That is likely the ugliest mainboard I have ever seen. I really do not like the poo/puke colour scheme.

What the hell were they thinking with that colour scheme? I agree lowfat, ugliest motherboard i have ever thing. Did they intended this to go into windowless cases?

Aside from the questionable colour scheme, it sounds like a great board for folding. I like the idea of better heat dissipation by reducing the board's absorption of it Perhaps they should've made the colour scheme camoflauge to hide its look.

I don't understand the big "military grade" push with MSI and ASUS these days... What are they trying to say? I'll bet my bottom dollar these "military grade" boards aren't in a single, government owned, military PC. And what exactly IS military grade? Can they stop bullets? Do they have night vision? Can it randomly take over a small country in a mistaken search for WMD's?

In short... that term is getting old. Marketing flashy, gaudy products with words like 'Military' thrown in to make it sound tougher, is a tactic for the masses. It only ends up insulting those smart enough to see it. Unfortunately, this marketing usually works, as the ignorant consumers far outweigh the intelligent. So we're doomed to see this get worse...

LOL @ poo/puke colour scheme. Yeah they're going for the whole "TUF" military camouflage colour scheme which is also the same kind of colour scheme as poo/puke. :haha:

Military grade IC's can run in a wider temperature range (up to 70C ambient IIRC). Does it do any good in your home computer? Likely not.

70C AMBIENT!? Great... I'll be sure to pick up this board if I decide to set up a gaming rig in the mouth of a volcano...
