Yeah, but the plastic makes it a better motherboard. I'll shell 100 dollars more for something that's better designed and looks totally badass. That plastic w/ fans on it makes sure that air is coursing over all the motherboard's surface. Therefore things will be cooled down and more reliable. If a board is open, air is hitting it but there's no channel of air so the air around it is gonna be a lot worse at removing heat. By making sure the air can only flow over the components on the board, and is being propelled by a fan through that channel. I think any board without such a cover is missing out on a huge advantage.

I've had motherboards with debug led's I think they're gaudy and ugly and they've never benefitted me. The Sabertooth Z77 has lights on each component port so if you do have a problem, you just see where the red light is, is it near the gpu? the cpu? the ram? I don't have to look up codes. Besides usually if something is wrong up, it takes like 5 minutes to pinpoint the problem or less. Sorry. I just think it's an amazing board.

I may have both an ud4h and an mvg...so yeah. Let's hope they don't bite each other's sockets off or something. biggrin.gif

One will go to a perma test bench thing with a pot, and the other in my cm 690 II which I'll mod, for my daily driver gaming and air benching machine.

Perfectly fine if you like the board man, but the q-led is an awesome thing for a bencher for example.
The Sabertooth doesn't work for me, too expensive and the MVG beats it in everything, so I didn't buy it. wink.gif
No need to justify your puchase though, if you're enjoying it, what the heck? right? tongue.gif

EDIT: I'm gonna build an 8350 rig to piss some fanbois here lol biggrin.gif jk jk (maybe I'll freeze my friend's 8120 if I find him a proper 990fx board)

I see it just the opposite, it wouldn't be as bad if all the plastic was gone. I can't see the thermal armor helping anything, would likely make board temps worse, & I just can't like it for looks.
Nothing against your board, a personal thing for me, I'm just not feeling the thermal armor.

I have to get another 990fx board, had what is supposed to be a good 8150 here for like a year that I haven't really tried yet.
Gonna have to play some 3d11 physics, pretty sure I can beat a 3570, not sure if 3770k is beatable....

...I think there's also a mod on OCN for 690ies to make Quadro xxxx out of them (just in case your heart desires that...)...involves some cutting here, some soldering there...right up your alley smile.gif

BTW, the vice method is awesome! Took less than a minute...

that is the cleanest intel application. it looks like a heatsink has never pressed down on it. if you match the pieces together, the whole die and ihs are covered in tim.

Make board temps worse? I don't think you know very much about it honestly. TheSabertooth Z77 armor has two miniature, i think 40 mm fans on it at key points, so it pushes air under the armour, therefore you have a channel of air, instead of just having an open volume of air where some may or most likely won't stick near your board taking heat along with it. A channelized amount of air allows it to propel wind directly over the board. It also comes with 12 temperature sensors. I can pretty much guarentee it does better. When people here the word "armour" they think it's too protect from blunt force. The armour in this case is only there to make the air flow directly over the board.

Not to mention 4 fan controller ports, plus 2 ports for the two fans that connect to the thermal armour I mentioned. Plus the CPU fan port. Including the power supply's fan, even though it doesn't enter the case's atmosphere. I'm at 17 fans strong.

Gonna get 3 delta fans and put 2 of them on my radiator on the bottom in the inside of the case. Not on top since they can cut fingers. Need to buy one though and experiment with it before I realize if I want something so loud, but people say they aren't annoying on low power.

Also, as for looks, tell me this doesn't look awesome.
