    The idea of a white PCB does not sound good to me.......The black is a nice change and I like it, it shows Gigabyte is versatile with their product and not afraid to put it out there for everyone to comment. I think the design has been well thought out and I'm sure the board went through many redraws before they put this one up for an eyeball. :-)

    i cant really comment yet about future plans but there is more to this story heh

    btw if you really want an objective result to a poll (speaking from my mkt background and all) you should not try take sides in the initial post as that influences people's decisions and makes it skewed :D

    I'd like to here more on that Dino, Pm me if you can! If not maybe I'll see what Colin can share with me next week.

    I never thought about it that way, just thought I should include my opinion as well since I started the topic. I will definitely keep that in mind for future polls, thanks!

    In 1984 I bought a new Z28 Camaro - I thought Chevrolet started painting their engine blocks black to hide their oil leaks - Anyway I checked into it and found out that black dissipates heat faster than any other color (as long as it's not in direct sunlight). You might check into this - Just my 2 cents worth. Just don't make the boards black and red. I kind of like the blue myself.

    Darker colors (black, brown, blue, etc.) absorb light better than lighter colors making them better for radiating heat.

    Ya I was thinking of putting a third choice (Other/Neither) when I posted it, but can't change it now so it'll have to stay as is.
