This just in from TweakTown:

At the 2008 Computex event, Intel officially took the curtains off its 4 series PCI Express chipset range which is set to replace the original 3 series of chipsets.

I don't get it! Why are all reviewers so heavy on o/c, I made 3 computers with the P43 and they all work great and they are cheaper then anything else in the same category, but by no means lower in performance and futures.

The placement of the power connectors is less fortunate but hey this is what you get when you don't want to pay 200$ for a motherboard but you want all the bells and DDR3 for the future.

The e-sata connector is not even used most of the times... and I wouldn't suggest an additional SATA controller just for that.

So I may say that from the review above the most lacking is the review.

All in all P43 is a great motherboard for me. :)

PS: Being a cheap ****** that want's only pure functionality I went for the boards without the WIFI.
