The antennas for WiFi look awesome when placed on top of cases like the DF-85.

Good review and mobo.


Colour scheme is a bit gay though.

I really enjoyed the review and it was timely at that. I've been waiting for a few of these boards to saturate the market and watch the feedback because it's on my short list.

Looks almost identical color wise to the Asus boards we ran in our testbeds for Socket 1366.
