That puke colour on the heatsinks really throws me off enjoying the look of the board.

We all love PCI !. Not a fan of the colour too... But I love Gigabyte board as well as their support. I'll probably stick with them for my next builds, but I prefer the "Gigabyte" colour scheme..

^^ the one question that keeps popping up is, how many sales do they gain by including legacy connections? they probably figure a good nuymber of people are still upgrading their 3-5 year old system and want to keep the dvd and hard drives, but still.

also,i find the usual blue pcb better looking, but thats just a personal thingie :p

I don't like the looks of the expansion slot layout...
For one, the x1 at the top will be blocked by the heat sink (unlike my lower-end 770 Giga which has half the heat sink cut out to prevent this).
From the looks of the shot at 6:43, two of the four physically x16 PCI-E slots are electrically x8; the first and third down from the "NB" heat sink are full x16, which may mean a video card starved for air if you run dual cards with the x16 electrical slots.

Did I miss something or is there no IDE connector to speak of? I may have to replace my IDE DVD-RAM drive :haha:

I rarely ever have to reset CMOS on any gigabyte board. Their overclocking recovery thing is a lot better than most other manufacturers.

There are some BIG issues if you have to clear the CMOS every 5min

is it just me or is gigabyte the last manufacturer to realize that people who pay $300+ for a board dont want anything related to blue?

I think the UD5 (from pictures) looks better.
