It's nice and all but I like the look of the UD boards better. The UD7/5 heatsinks look nice.

This thing looks ugly and probably will cost too much, can't see the point of it.

Im not a big fan of these boards I would prefer there not be ammo mags on my board for heatsinks it makes the board look tacky and almost childish imo but to each there own .

If only they could replace that one heatsink Id pick one up I love the green black color scheme.

Agreed. I would never buy one of these for that reason alone.

So-called computer performance enthusiasts basing possible purchases on the aesthetics of a piece of hardware. You bunch of pansies

Joking aside, I don't like the looks of it myself but if it has the features and performance I want, I would buy it. Have my Sr-2 build sitting inside a cardboard box, that is how much I care for aesthetics.
