I like.

Imagine being able to bring around a little box that puts an average person's desktop and console to shame.

The stubby card itself is very attractive for people with small cases.

Why do companies keep putting the CPU socket there on ITX boards instead of just using the ASUS location which can accommodate large air coolers like the D14 without conflicting with the PCIe slot?? You're pretty much boxed into liquid with this design if you want to make use of all the upgraded power circuitry. Boxing in is the opposite of what enthusiast components are supposed to do! This is not a Maximus VI Impact alternative as is.

You can still use a tower heatsink, but will have to face it in a direction to where the fan will still fit. On my setup, I have the fan on the rear of the heatsink to pull air instead.

Amazing and very portable. This would indeed put consoles and an average pc user to shame due to it's sheer size and high specification.
