That EVGA mATX board is so ugly. Not only with looks but features.

at least it has 10USB ports - 90% of why I sold my P8P67-M Pro and eventually got a M4G-Z

I'm not entirely sure I know what you mean..
Semi-related, I don't think I will be using the V354 much longer. I really don't like it.

I actually found having the HDMI port on the Gene quite handy. I was having issues with my video card when I first installed and it was nice to have onboard to get at the BIOS to see what was up.

Has anyone made already some experiences with this "tool" (driver)!?

Lately i was visiting the ASUS ROG Forum and guess what, there's also a guy named "LA_KINGS_FAN" posting around!

Maybe this guy is able to post there the following question
"Who has deleted the latest BIOS 0403 and starting BIOS version in the ASUS download website?"

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Wow, just about 160-180 US$ for an AMD HD 6950? Good price, but what are the experiences with those "open boxes"? Does one get the whole warranty also? Then it's a good deal.
Overhere in germany, the cheapest new HD6950 is about 180€/255US$ without extra costs like delivery.
I tried the smart update it says its for raid only? On the other hand the other irt that 200+ megs update just fine....

True, it's just a DP port would be much better, IMHO. Not only does DP have a backwards compat mode, so a cheap, 5 usd HDMI passive adaptor may be used, it also supports 2560x1600 resolutions.... something NO existing HDMI implementation does today (the official specs mandate it. AMD, nVidia, Intel, and every monitor Manuf. has been ignoring it).

Just my take on this

You have the backlpate on the video card, where you screw to the case. And the plastic cover of the DCUII VGA cooler is additional 25mm higher than this. In my chassis, this is colliding with the PSU, since there is only 10mm clearance. In the V354, you also have the PSU above the VGA.

Whats the max res on HDMI? I plan to connect my U2410 with that, 1920x1200.
But i also have DP available, just dont know, if that also supports sound from the VGA to the U2410's minijack too, where i have my HD555 connected.

I don't really mind what res it is. As long as it's not 800x600. Just something to use as a backup just in case.

Oh you mean 25mm wider than a expansion slot cover! Gotcha.
I'm not sure. I haven't really looked into it yet, but like I say, I am going to be putting this build in a different case.
