look at the heatsinks on this if only they did it with a silver coloured heatsink then I would definitely buy this board

wish it was AM2+, then this would be the best mobo for me to get instead of the RD790, which has PCI-E 2.0 n HTX 3.0.

Pop that sucker off the board and go find your local electroplating service. It's copper... so it's ready to go with anything you want to plate onto it. Nickel and chrome, just nickel (kind of like chrome only a little brassier in color and not as reflective, very cool)... check out what they have available. Pretty sure there's plenty of options, and dropping a thin layer of plating on that sink won't affect the heat dissipation by enough to worry about.

Gotta love those loops. Very cool.
