Even still, Why would they even bother building it like this? I'm guessing ABS isn't going to go out of their way to tell customers about this little tidbit. My advice - know a product before you buy it. Even better - build it yourself.

I have heard of this also. ( MS sending you 64bit and charge only shipping ) However im not sure how true this is. I have never really looked into it.

The Gigabyte Aurora is well known for having crap air flow...
