    This is pretty much the only black and orange motherboard. It's also pretty great for overclocking (it makes it a breeze). The turbo button on the motherboard was depressed when it arrived, so after I turned everything on, the motherboard wouldn't post or anything. I was going to RMA this until I realized that I should probably press the button other than the power button that's lit up. Other than that, smooth sailing.

    Also, really wish there were more usb headers. Overclocking motherboard, one header? Pretty sure most overclockers will have peripherals that need headers.

    Great mobo, great BIOS interface and great desktop apps. Couldn't be happier. Even my grandmother can OC with this mobo.

    This mobo was a hassle to find, when I decided I wanted it they had been discontinued, anyway it has a fantastic BIOS for overclocking and messing around with settings as well as being intuitive. This mobo also has really nice features like the ability to turn off specific PCI-E and DIMM slots, Boot to BIOS, turbo mode and ignition mode (keeps fans running when the pc isn't); but honestly I really wanted this mobo due to gigabytes colour scheme, it was the only one that had an orange and black colour scheme as well as all the features.
