It's funny, when looking at the review of your motherboard, I could only think of one thing... and it made me want that board so bad (despite having nothing else to really complain about with my MVE - it's great in almost
every way). The component placements. All of the cable connections are around the edges of the board with NOTHING even remotely connectable vertically in the GPU area!
Good Lord that took about a decade too long!
Nothing is more irritating than having a very clean-cabled MB area and then having to string an HD Audio cable, 6-pin Aux Power cable, or ?? halfway across the board to somewhere in the middle. Why wasn't this board out and on my radar when I started buying components for my build... SIGH! Ah well... hopefully this is a sign of MSI's future - and if that's the case they will definitely be my go-to brand for my S2011 (or ??) build in a couple years! Hell, I'm debating getting one anyway and using it in my current rig... but that's just too wasteful for me to contemplate... and there will always be another build.
