[wccf] Motherboard Vendors Tease Upcoming Z97 Motherboards – Z97 G1 Killer, GA-Z97X-UD5H and MSI OC / Gaming Series, EVGA Z97 Classified - Page 6

Remember back when mid-high end boards all had proper heat sinks on them:



And only the low end boards had the daft looking chunky sinks:

Intel(R) JPEG Library, version 1,5,4,36

So why do they think it's so fun to make the premium boards of today look like 2008's poverty spec?



It still looks as cheap and ugly as it did in 2008.

Memory controllers was still in the North Bridge and affected overclocking.... chipsets use to consume 60w+.....

No, that doesn't explain it. They'd already started with the stupid heat sinks in the x58 era, and the difference between TDP of x58 and, say, x38 (when real heat sinks reigned supreme) was something like 2.5W.

My worry with some of those shots is (for us air coolers) the top PCI-E slot being 16x, this can mess with >140mm wide heatsinks such as the Thermalrite True Spirit 140 measuring 155mm and hangs over the first pci-e slot by about 5mm.

My whole reason for going full atx from my Gryphon, my Bequiet Dark Rock 2 doesn't cool quite as well. But I am waiting for a Z97.

Also unless you are using water or AIO the heatsinks are mostly hidden by the cooler
and a big gpu masks the majority of the chipset sink, so my wonderful matching colour scheme Gryphon is under lumps of black and silvery coloured stuff. So quit whining about heatsink colours already wink.gif

Meh, Gigabyte using those ugly fin style heatsinks again, because I thought their entire Z77 lineup looked ugly because of it.

Sorry for the noob question, but will a current Haswell like a 4770k be able to be used in a Z97 board with ddr3?
