Now all I can hear in the back of my head is that line from Star Wars: "An army of the Republic"....

Dunno. Haven't really got anything to go on here. I will say that historically I have not been overly impressed with Asus boards, mainly because they tended to go through the 'driver of the week' routine, but that was back in the KT133 days.

Whats the point in the fancy back panel? All the back panel needs to do is house your connections. Having an LED at the back is useless, as to be able to read it you'd have to pull your PC out, get on your hands and knees, and probably have to use a torch because you can't see.
*sigh*
It's almost as bad as the silly gimmicks shoved on Fatal1ty boards.

A back lite can be very useful in tight spots when pugging and unplugging "stuff". Not much to show the guys though...":O}

Umm, whatever.

How about all of the headers and ports and features with all the overclocking aids, but without the bling bling and price tag.

ASUS. Another four-letter word - I would go DFI first.
