dunno if you ordered or not, but I really hate the 24 pin placement on that board

spend a little more P5Q pro or the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R if you can

Hm, yea that is an odd placement for the power pin.

Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
"Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll."
