I want to see x79 Sabertooth and EVGA FTW; I'm not too crazy about this board.

I love that they had the forethought to leave spacing for 2 tri slot coolers OR 3 dual slot. It's so simple yet so rare. PCI is dead for the most part.

Also, what is up with the tag??? Hahaha.

Pretty ugly honestly. The Gigabyte ones are looking way nicer if looks matter to people.

Asus needs to chill out with their electric blue.

The front panel USB 3.0 connector is in the right place. That is exactly where it should be and any manufacturer that places it bottom mid should take note.

The explansion slot layout puzzles me. No PCI would be fine if the remaining PCIe 1x slots weren't in strange locations. If anyone can shed some light on the reasoning behind this layout I might change my mind about it.
The board pretty much forces you to waste one of the white PCIe 16x slots for a sound card but apart from that it looks like a very solid board.

Now let's pretend I'm one of "you people" and that if my motherboard doesn't match my socks, my day is completely ruined.
Unfortunately my SLI setup, cable connectors, RAM sticks and CPU cooler (among others) are preventing me from seeing much (if at all) of the motherboard. I'm just going to have to visualize the board (and my socks) in my head before screaming with horror at the lack of color coordination.

I like the feature set, but I think they should swap one of the PCI-E x1 slots and one of the PCI slots so both PCI-E x1 slots aren't directly under the PCI-E x16 slots. Also, it's ugly as sin.

I agree that red is ugly and overplayed, but I still think those board looks unappealing. Asus' LGA1155 boards look quiet a bit better IMO.
