    Oh that is a lovely looking board!

    Couple that with some white fans, white and black RAM (like the Kingston Hyper X series)

    and it would really look awesome!

    Looking at the bare board though I wonder how many features are missing compared to the enthusiast overclocking boards.

    I too thought it looked pretty neat, matching cases like my soon to be used R4 with the black and white scheme (and the matching black and white fans in there), probably could get some RAMs like that... but never a graphics card with black and white! Or a cpu cooler... unless they release those with matching colors, but black and red is all too omnipotent these days.

    Never getting a MSI board again, all the MSI boards i've had had USB issues every single one of them.

    It does look good though, but white/black meh.

    have had a few MSI boards over the past few years, only problem I saw was SLI would not work with a boot leg copy of Win7 on one of them.

    It looks good, but it looks very cheap.

    Mmmm this would actually look great with my white Corsair 600T case and Tundra TD02 cpu cooler - may be a future purchase cheers HH

    Oh, this is a lovely looking board. I like the simple black and white touches. Very refined look. Would have been a nice option when I first built my 600T. I hope to see more style options like this in the higher end segments; I'm so over the redundant red and black themes - don't get me wrong, they all look great but there are just sooo many of them! This is a nice and well done change of pace for once; excellent!

    Actually I think the fact they dont have text plastered all over the place like other boards may be a reason why it looks so empty when you compare it to those links you posted. Imagine how they will look if you removed all the white font covering it.
