Personally, I'm not sure about that layout, the CPU socket is in a better place than it was in the Z77 board, but I use a Kühler 620 anyway, so cooler compatibility is not an issue.
What really bothers me are the 8-pin and Sata plugs.
Why can't they do what they do with the AMD boards and put the DIMMS on the the side opposite the GPU? Much much better. Then, the SATA can go on the side that is nearest the SSD/HDD's anyway! No brainer!
