    If it's not a user configurable OC profile then I'd call it a gimmick.....

    If they want to do something really useful why don't they allow a CLRCMOS button on the case...

    Because then they'd have to worry about me buying the motherboard and having to RMA when the circuit on the board finally fails.

    I actually thing the 3.5 Bay Drive with a Cmos Reset switch in the front of the case is more doable then behind the case. Strangly this has already been done in the past.

    I say it's "bleh", it would have been nice if it had a light blue PCB, or even a red one.

    oooo god....asus what are you doing to me!! i thought my formula II was damn fine, i got to say its a selling point as well mobos looking could, alot of people wanna show off there rigs and making everything look pleasing to the eye is a bonus

    on the tech side of things, i hope the P55 is good, shame about the new SATA would love to see it in action!

    I just noticed something. That is a silly place to put a 24pin socket..



    No, it's not only you - motherboards are becoming pretty sexy as well. :D

    yawn...same crap as the dummy oc in most bios.
    when the hell are mb makers going to start including a bios chip or two in case you scramble the orginal one?
    now that would be a great idea

    On the COMPLETE opposite end of the power supply? Yeah, typical Asus design, they're the Apple of the PC world.
