It's nice that Asrock isn't the only one who still believes in AM3+
But I feel like that MSI, just rolled out a board for sheer "Yay we haz 3.1 on our AM3+"
and "Look we have black and white theme on am3+"
Unless people buy HoF cards to put in ther, which, well it's obnoxious, because it's like getting a superpowerful card to run with an 8370 or lower. UNLESS, MSI has plans to start rolling out some more Krait themed "budget" graphics cards. (they have announced a 960 already).
[They achieved 3.1 by removing the SATA III powered by the plex chip by asmedia and used another plex chip so they could get some pcie bandwidth for the USBs]Quote

There are plenty mainly black graphics cards, let alone that most coloured ones are stickers or clips that easily come off or can be painted. Also things like the Kraken G10 or watercooling (although then again I'd rather get an aircooled i7 rig for the money).Quote
