If you like something all white PCB wise check this out,*MSI is launching a X299 Tomahawk motherboard, the Arctic Edition. You kind of need to really like it, or probably hate the looks....

Does anyone else see the irony of calling the white motherboard edition Tomahawk? You know a Native American axe. Just kind of makes me laugh.

I do like the look of the white PCB though.

It's more likely a reference to the cruise missile.

That's exactly what it is. Even the logo below the TOMAHAWK shows its a missile icon.

These appear to be a white painted motherboard while the defunct Soyo brand motherboards actually had white fiberglass material for the motherboard.

I wonder what color is the motherboard of the actual missile.

(Actually, motherboards, there's several computers inside that missile...)

Little did we know that all these years of having Tomahawks in operation, we failed to see the small writing on the nose of the warhead

We need more white PCBs. I love it. There is only 1 for AMD right now and it's way too expensive for what you get. Basically paying a $150 premium for the color.
