Nice quality

Running with a 4770K and H100i, the auto overclock was simple and set the speed to 4.3Ghz. Also I installed the AI Suite and ran the Auto Fan tool, now my PWM Case fans are silent on idle and speed up when gaming. Very impressed and it looks good too.
Only gripe is the single yellowy/green power LED right in the middle of the board, looks really cheap and spoils the overall quality, should be a glowing Logo or something a bit more fancy really.
