I'm drooling in german right now! This is one sexy motherboard! Especially the design of the chipset heatsink and the circles you mentioned. RGB is simple yet sexy imho.

I'd go for a red and yellow/gold/orange Iron Man-like build. Escpecially because it looks like you can change the color of the center of the chipset heatsink independently! Can't wait to see the full review!

I think it could of done with being lower, because you are going to cover the top part with the end of a gpu by the looks of it. Though I'd probably turn that off in favour of the RGB's on the gpu
