Just a few weeks back, we brought you the news that a few motherboard manufacturer’s have showed off their upcoming Z97 motherboards. The motherboards displayed by the vendors were only prototype and didn’t show any specific features of the next generation design but companies have started to tease these features over the recent days which look impressive.

Here we go: Another thread where the first half posts about how they like the styling and the other half passive-aggressively complains about how horrible it looks.

Well it's a thread about mobo teasers and the only real info we have is the looks... So I would say that the posts are to be expected in this case.

More in-depth discussion when someone actually details an OCing board and its features.
