Damn, its that the heatsink for the NB??

It probably weighs more that the actually mobo itself.

If that's gonna be the new trend in motherboards then we're gonna run into a lot of problems when it comes to getting an after market cpu cooler that fits, cause not only would we have to worry about tall ram sticks, we'll also have to worry about tall heat-sinks as well. Over the past few years cpu coolers have only been getting bigger and bigger . Unless of course you're like me and using water.
Typical example right here...........http://static.pcinpact.com/images/bd...tua-nh-c14.png

I like it a lot. Definitely a whole lot better than that nasty black/gold scheme they have on their P67A-UD7.

Not sure why anyone would use LN2 on a 1155 board (if this is a 1155 board), since the cpu max speed gets reached on air.

So long as they have a black PCB, I'm not complaining. Orange is sort of hard to work with though. Though Akasa, Thermaltake and Nexus just to name a few have orange fans - so whatever tickles your fancy I guess. I'll stick with the minimalistic black though.

Looks like a special "Halloween" edition. Though I do have to admit that I kinda like the colours.

I kinda liked the G1 killer Series that gigabyte showed off. It had an ammo magazine NB heatsink. I am a big fan of gigabyte boards, I just purchased the black UD3P for my sandy bridge build. Can't wait to overclock the 2600k.
