That heatpipe setup is so ridiculous it makes me wanna hurl. They could have done without half that gob-job of a heatpipe mess.... And can anyone say "wayyyyyy overpriced???".

See I like it alot because Asus actually knows how to jam pack the back i/o panel. Look at all they crammed it. But man the board will cost $400 USD

The board looks really nice except one thing : WTF is up with the heat pipes! It's should look more clean IMO, it's not really integrated that well. Also, anyone spot a price for it? I didn't catch one.

Edit: Read SHifter's post, 400 USD?

Yeah, upon first look at the picture I thought the same thing. I guess giant HSF's like the Scythe Infinity won't fit on this board...
