Thanks Tom!

Will have to chose between this and the Gryphon. Might simply come down to price though, but I'm willing to spend more on this one if the audio is much better.

Thanks tom! Sexy board and I like that little bit of gold on the audio chip. Adds a nice accent!

True, though the z77 version of this board used to be around €120,- over here (100 quid?) so I'm waiting to see what the actual price will be.

I also planned on a black & white theme. Not sure if the whole black & white and a bit of green is going to work.

I don't have the funds yet anyway. Do you have any idea when your Gryphon review might be out (if you're doing one at all)?

No plans to atm. TBH a lot has changed at Asus and they make it far to hard to get stuff from them which is why they have fuck all reviews live for NDA.

Ive got a Maximus 6 here but they seem to think delivering it the day before NDA is acceptable. Its not. I certainly wont be working my arse off for them again till they start showing me some love.

I hope the ASUS boards are just as good. I really do.

How dare Asus be bad to Tommy?! D:
*throws money towards Gigabyte*

Do you reckon this board would work well in a 350D of which I paint the PCI brackets (including the ones on the GPU) white, use black frame and white blade fans and use the white Corsair sleeved cables?

Could always make the H100i LED green or white for more balance and I'm probably getting an Nvidia card anyway
