lol, I agree, the board looks solid except that freaking yellow, the same color scheme is on my 680s, granted with a bit less yellow. Black+blue is by far the best looking imo.

Thanks for the update Hilbert, I'm getting excited for the new platform! By the way, am I the only one who noticed that the sound chip looked like it was held on by sheet-rock screws? It looked like a full retail sample so I was surprised to see that, it looked a bit odd to me?

Well, whatever's been made in China... and emerged in Egypt, has to be, predominantly yellow (it is also the color of the desert)...
Joking. I find that combination of colors very pleasing to eye, whereas the red/blue/black usually looks too aggressive and too fashionable. But they should definitely replace those ugly screws.

Agreed.

As a side note the gallery doesn't start as usual, when I click on a link it asks me to save.
