    Default Gigabyte needs to make a Black motherboard

    Everyone's qualm with Gigabyte seems to be that they think someone threw up legos all over the motherboard. Im sure this has been brought up a thousand times, but its on my mind, so deal with it =P

    While I certainly find that Gigabyte boards are sexy, it would be nice if Gigabyte designed some all black motherboards. Maybe this is asking too much, but I think they would just get so much more business from people who won't buy Gigabyte because it is aesthetically displeasing to them.

    Btw, I own a ex58-ud5, so I dont fall into this category, but it is something I would like to see in the future.

    Intel does make some nice attractive black boards. But when you consider the lack of BIOS settings, I'd rather have a pink Gigabyte board than go back to Intel. I had a D975XBX that I had to mod to get any decent options, and then they later released a BIOS update that disable the CPU vcore from working at all, even with the mod. Plus, the multiplier was locked, couldn't even go down. They are nice if you aren't going to overclock, but what fun is that? ;)

    I think Gigabyte boards are beautiful and they are works of art. I love the blue. But it would be kinda cool to see them make a Black one for the most high performance line or something.

    No one said the Intel's were a tweaker's best friend :) ... However they are extremely stable. BTW I also/still do, have a D975XBX2 (Bad Ax) motherboard. And yeah, the BIOS is lacking.

    At any rate I was just messing with you. No harm

    Black is UGLY I think!

    I love the Blue PCB's, especially now that they have matching white and light blue connectors!

    I know, just wanted to make sure anyone else watching knew better than to get one for overclocking. ;)

    I do like the newer ones with the blue and white connectors, but I have that EP45-UD3P with the red and yellow slots, and I think they are horrific. But this is the best board I have ever had. 4.0 on a quad. Just unbelieveable.

    Yeah, I love Intel boards but passed on Intel's X58 in favor of Gigibytes features.
