              Hmm, I think I prefer the blue and white of the AM3 boards. But I agree that red is best, especially with a big side window and a red CCFL.

              I like red at the bottom, like lava under the earth, where the graphics card is the crust of the earth and a blue CCFL at the top, like the sky.

                    that is one seriously full rear panel on the GA-P67A-UD7



                    Gigabyte have always liked to do some very heavily loaded boards, and it appears the "everything and the kitchen sink" ethos is still there shame that miniFirewire socket wasnt a FW800 one though

                      Love black mobos. Think when Sandybridge comes along and I am in the build mood again I am going to go for a colour coordinated windowed case machine again for a change. Hiding it all in the Fractal looks really nice, but I do miss looking at the tech too.

                            That's one thing I like about Gigabyte - I never saw the point in leaving gaps in the back panel where something could so easily fit. That's one thing I'd change on my own motherboard if I could - there is a useless serial port on the back. I think I disabled it in BIOS because I have nothing that would use it, but it's such a big port, it could so easily be removed and replaced by four, or even eight, more USBs.

                              serail ports are NOT useless if you have a UPS ... many of them still use RS232 communication, and some, like certain models of APC units do not allow full access into the mirky depths of it's bios/firmware/software without using a serial cable (i know because i had to do a reconfigure on the one i had to get it working from the right battery calculation table after i picked it up and replaced the battery)

                              I'm also a fan of ps2 mouse and keyboard sockets, i can see the advantage with mice, as they say there is a delay through the ps2 port sometimes or it's too slow etc etc, but i'm not a gamer, and i'd rather leave the USB ports for other things, and use the ps2 one's where i can, one of the reasons i switched back to a ps2 keyboard on my old mans pc, was because it gives me back a usb socket which i can use elsewhere and i have no fear of the keyboard refusing to work in bios or anything stupid like that, the combined either/or sockets are better than nothing i guess, but if like me you have a thumbtack ball and ps2 keyboard, your kinda screwed lol

                                I too like the PS2 keyboard port. Shame manufacturers cannot supply AT spec power to them.

                                My IBM Model M refuses to work on my MSI P45 board through the PS2 port.

                                Model M draws 112mA most modern keyboards only draw 1.2mA.
                                I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!
