It looks really nice and and all but is a bit of a disappointment when it pared with those P55 boards. Not having heat spreaders is worrisome a with a $100+ price tag. They perform well enough but I am not convinced.

I am the reason we can't have nice things.

Good review, the patriots did well (of course we're talking synthetics).

I was interested in the non heat spreader design (well until the leds turned on)

Though as always when it comes to the real world:

memory is memory is memory :P
