Yes it could be the new corporate image and would get a lot of people buying the boards. I think runn3R should put it forward to HQ.

Well I see that tartan is not an option, so I think I will stay with blue, It seems that everything is black now and sometimes hard to read small print :)

I'm all for tartan too, as long as it's the Black Watch Tartan ;)

Trouble with a tartan motherboard is that it would have a VERY limited market. We all know how frugal the Scots are with their pennies!  :D

So, that would be how many? ???  With such a limited demand the cost would be too much!  :D

No the cost wouldn't be that much. A tin of tartan paint and a HAF case. No problem.

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


Well, I would like a little more creativity and selections:

Hot Pink [my wife's favorite color]

Banana Yellow [color of my dream car]

Candy Cane Red and White Lines [just in time for Christmas and because I really like that flavor]

Yummy!
