Yeah I was wondering that myself, but was to lazy to update my post. Theres 2 at bottom and one up by itself. Maybe core unlocker, the two on bottom are probably turbo key and mem ok.
How does a Mem OK switch work (noticed them on intel boards before)
All those switches and no convenient reset cmos switch, I really don't like the manual jumper

I don't know why they always put the 1x slots in inconvenient places, there should at least always be one above the the 1st PCIe x16 slot on all boards
My current board has the PCIe x1 underneath the x16 slot, which is a complete fail, seeing that a dual slot GPU covers it (And being a high end board, the user will most like only ever use a card that require a dual slot :/)

I like how ASUS went back with the 90 degree SATA ports, as silly as it sounds, that's a deciding factor when I buy a motherboard. Not the only one, but an important one.
Hopefully they release a really good quality mATX board soon.
Must say I'm with you there, looks so budget if they not the 90deg mounted sata ports, makes a mess of everything, plus it saves loads of saves on the board to have them on the edge of the board setting at 90degEdited by N3G4T1v3 - 5/5/11 at 8:22am
