Looks really nice. So the 16+3 power phase should keep the voltages very stable and allow a good overclock?
Why does the PCI-E securing thingy look like a plane? :o

true, I hate some boards when it comes to releasing the cards. My gigabyte has a nice easy release but all my old asus's were such a pain and I broke alot of the clips out of frustration, looks like they were sick of the broken ones sent back with a few of the boards I RMA'd with em lol.

Absolute WIN to DFI regarding the PCI-E thingamajigga, they just don't have it! The PCI-E slot sort of narrows towards the end of it, so the card is secured into place, but you don't have to fight that crap when you want to take the card out.

Seriously, big credit goes out to King for maintaining this list. He puts a lot of work into this thing and he deserves our thanks! - Verran
