Mmmm more MSI board pr0n! That ITX has my attention, with a full block would make a teeny tiny powerhouse.

Not too sure on them really, the gaming series badge looks tacky and I liked the actual dragon heatsinks.
Good to see M.2 connectors on the ATX boards though

I personally prefer the current dragon design heatsink on the Z87 board. Have to see one of these in person to see if it catches my attention. So far the videos/photos have not done it.

Not really sure what to think of them. I kind of liked the dragon heatsinks too. It might just be that I need to get used to the new look though.

This is pretty much going to be the same as going from Z77 to Z87, Zero performance gain to the naked eye, I'll wait for Broadwell

The z87 heatsinks look better, but that brushed aluminium. Brushed aluminium always looks good.

Going to disagree with most of you here and say that I always thought the whole dragon theme was a bit 'childish'? (no offense guys, to each their own )

Quite like this one, the dragon isn't all that in-your-face anymore.

I wonder why my thread in the MSI forum got deleted about the gaming 9?
