Other than that who wants Fatal1ty's name on something they own anyway.
For those of us who've been gaming longer than activision COD games Fatal1ty is a well known name in quake circles. I can garuntee you there may be no one on the planet better at FPS overall than he is

The design is fine.. its better than using BULLETS as heatsinks... Its a lot better looking than most "gaming" motherboards

I agree I have no interest in x79 but the board looks identical to the 990FX (I have still for sale on marketplace) and the p67 I just picked up. I like it... I knew exactly where everything was when i pulled the p67 out of the box

Not for me, thanks.
I am selling mine you sure you dont want to buy it? ;-)
I liked the board quite a bit. I was just ready to get away from AMD

Ugh.. again.. well known from Quake days.
people who don't know who fatal1ty is should have their gamer card taken away. He was pretty much THE first professional gamer.

I would have rathered see Dual-Gigabit though. I enjoy being able to have dedicated internet to my Gaming rig and a connection to the regular network in the house that all my room-mates are on along with my homeserver.
It is a solid board. I liked the dual ethernet ports (I believe they are gigabit?)
