Your at Tweaktown Steve? I might reading the reviews there again as I like your detailed analysis/knowledge most reviewers lack.

Pretty sure I'm getting this board as much as I complained about the red.

Someone said $600? I'm hearing more $400-$500 from guru who reviewed it already. Supposedly it's like the perfect motherboard.
Going to look nice with my custom loop in my new SM8.

P.S. The shielding is metal. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the IO shield is removable. Can you confirm Elmy?

Yes, that's where I'm getting the price from. He says something around $400+ USD. Doubtful to be $400 but I'd assume around $500 the most. Supposed to compete with rampage V is assume.

Any sightings in the US yet and what is the probability of being able to repaint the shield? Not a big fan of the red but a huge fan of the boards features.

Seems like MSI is really going literal with the name of this product... as you can't see it anywhere....

Reviewers have it though and the free boards they gave away to hardcore overclockers for pissing contests.
