Due to change of colour into black in the P67A-series MB's please tell us which colour scheme is your favorite one.

ZX-S & C64 are still my favourites ;-)

Well I do like the black board but I would prefer to see it with the UV reactive slots rather than just plain black( that way Gigabyte can keep it's "corporate blue" when under UV light and look just black the rest of the time). I must admit to liking the styling also especially the heatsinks, looks the business and powerful.

I also like the new black board, It looks mean and powerful and the new heatsink design also looks impressive.

I couldn't give two hoots what colour a board is, it's a tool in my mind, I would rather Gigabyte spend time and money on keeping high standards of quality.
I do appreciate I am in the minority, the bulk of the buying public are influenced by looks.

Really like the idea of a Black motherboard. Is it going to be only used for Intel boards or will the AMD boards also come in black?

Interesting question virtualcrowbar. The AMD platform always seems to come a poor second in these situations.

I would think that if they make the decision to go with the black boards that it will be across the range totally.

Ok, me likes ;D. Before viewing the video I thought it didn't look all that great but it is nice. It's more of a grey color rather than full black, though ( and that's good ). Kinda metallic grey ???

I really do not care either so your not the only one. Don't like windowed cases either. I did hate the pink boards MSI had and the nasty tan boards Asus had. If I could pick the color of any board it would be black with gold traces. Emerald green with back or gold traces would be cool also.
