You've gotta see this. ASUS 790i, X48 PINOT NOIR. Price???

Just when I thought my Maximus Extreme was "fancy".

I'll lay odds this thing will be $1000.

Thumbs up

Looks like they took some ideas from the Superbikes (Kawasaki, etc) on the theme look & the GOLD plating alone on that mobo is going to raise the price up quite a bit!!!
But as we all know, gold is the best conductor out there.
Very cool looking mobo though! I'd like to have it along with a kickass H2O system...

Looks good.

Gold is actually a terrible conductor - extremly high capacitance. Silver is the best (well silver oxide is better). Gold is used for connections as it doesn't corrode and therefore always has a good connection.

Hopefully there is also a way to change the water hose connections - some may prefer to have them routed inside the case.
