Well.....I feel loved.

Still unpacking and doing laundry. Gained 15 pounds in 11 days. How was I able to accomplish that? Glad you asked. Every single cell in my body was stretched to twice its normal size by stuffing it full of fresh fish, pasta, beef and lots of carbs....every 3 hours or so. Next, for extra stretchability, I soaked each cell in a mixture of island rum for at least 4 hours each evening. For added impact, I would then expose all cells to some fine cuban cigar smoke every night. Lets just say I'm only showing pictures of myself during the first day or two of the trip....because I look quite different by the end of the trip. redface.gif

I've started to go through my packages, so I'll add some pictures in between laundry loads this evening and tomorrow. thumb.gif

One of my packages waiting on me was from NewEgg, and contained the Asrock Extreme11 motherboard I have been waiting on. I got two of them, because I thought I might need to loan one to Nate for some custom waterblock work we've been discussing. Turns out he got his hands on one already, so I may have one of these for sale or trade soon.





Packaging is very nice and the board is secured well with foam. I doubt much bad happens to these during shipment






I know I read where one OCN'er received one that was either missing a screw or had a loose screw on a heatsink. Can't remember which. I don't see any such problems with the one box I've opened. Everything looks to be in great shape. Here is everything the box contains without the packaging:





Sata cords, SLI bridges, etc....and both a backplate AND a front 3.5" adapter for USB 3.0 connections. Nice. Here is a picture of the just the board. I remember I liked the looks of this right away when they started teasing us with the pictures back in February or so. I know everyone has their own idea on what the color scheme of a board should be like...but I just love this one.







Some fun pictures. Remember I'm loading big pictures....so you can click on any of these for a blown up view:













The board is CEB size, which basically is the same height as ATX, but one inch wider. Even so...the TH10 motherboard tray swallows this thing up.







And here are a few of the motherboard tray back inside the box. Really gives you a feel for how big the TH10's are. This board is bigger than an ATX board, and still looks tiny in here.







More from this package later tonight. Must fold clothes. smile.gif
