I actually like the look of this board. Although I would probably turn off the LEDs

AM3 is going to be replaced within 12 months. Then again those yearly refreshes anyways.

I don't like the fake carbon fiber look.
I've never seen a real car on a motherboard box before i think.

Have you noticed that most new AM3+ boards are on the 970 chipset and have usb3.1 m.2 nvme support.... that chipset will run out of bandwidth but why use that? Because it's cheap...

Theory is when you have the "know how" but nothing works.
Practice is when everything works but no one knows why.
In our lab, theory and practice are combined: Nothing works and no one knows why

Yea i know, but i think carbon wrap tends to look way worse than actual carbon fiber. It doesn't really look like carbon fiber but like a checkered grayscale pattern because the depth is missing.

IIRC there was a car on the box for the 680i motherboards back when..



Actually it was a single wheel and two flaming exhausts

Thankfully the board didn't look stupid like this one.

I dunno MSI. A little while back you were making plain black boards that looked teh sex, now this. Carbon fibre is so 2009.
