Very slick looking. Just like my board though the front panel audio connection is in the wrong space. I hate having 1 cable droop across my board, it ruins the clean look :(

I have the original version of that board. It is really very nice and overclocks are extremely easy. The bios is easy enough, but has plenty of tweaks. I also love the blue color and layout. I would be interested to see how the update compares to mine.

I think I'm going to get a 920 DO stepping, I have a 920 C0, but heck 199.00 at micro center.:) Just keep the i7 920 CO for a backup.:D
