The Chassis Fan header is in a strange place.
So is the PSU Fan header.
I also noticed that it has 3 headers for fans which is a
real blessing for overclockers since they typically use more
fans. My only gripe about those is the placement. The header for
the CPU is placed pretty well on the right side of the CPU area
so there aren't any problems with that. The one for the PSU is
placed behind the PCI slots. The one for the Chassis fan is
placed behind the DIMM slots in the frontal area of the CPU.
This makes routing fan cables a pretty tedious task.
This capacitor is too tall and may obstruct
Another bad for this mobo is this capacitor located in the front
of the CPU slot. It's a tad too tall for my liking. You aren't
gonna fit some of the bigger heatsinks into this thing like the
Vantec P3D5030 for example. The Alpha P3125 has no problems though.
Color-coded IDE headers.
One nice feature too is that they color-coded the IDE headers so
that you'll know which one the primary is without having to read
those cryptic prints on the PCB or grab a manual.
The ATX connector isn't badly placed but it
could be better. Still, this is a nice change if you're used to
running that thick ATX cable over the CPU to help create some
spaghetti grubbies and block off airflow.
