ASUS 'Marine Cool' Concept Motherboard

In the lead up to CEBIT 2009 there are already some interesting new designs and concepts starting to make an appearance in preparation for the consumer trade show. ASUS is one of those companies leading the way in research and development, particularly in the field of motherboard development.

The ASUS 'Marine Cool' motherboard is a concept motherboard design that is aimed predominantly at providing increased stability more than overclocking prowess. It features a ceramic backplate which should assist with heat dissipation more efficiently than conventional motherboard design, and a UPS battery backup hidden behind it. The motherboard also has built-in memory if the installed memory happens to go bad.

ASUS are understandably playing their cards close to their chest with the 'Marine Cool' and additional technical details have been kept under wraps for the time being. Whether the Marine Cool concept will see the light of day in the current economic climate remains to be seen, but it's great to see that manufacturers like ASUS thinking outside the box.

you should turn the bottom fan upside down as it will reduce your system temps..
as we know about the tendency of air i.e. hot air rises up & cool air resides at the bottom so that bottom fan should act as intake & in pic. i suppose it's exhausting the air..

Actualy mate its a well known fact dual cores game better becuase of the higher fsb.

You only need a quad for benches, I sold my qx9770 and got a e8600 instead.

My fps went up.... but my 3d06 went down.

Hmmmm? I know what is better in real life :D

do you reckon that would work with 'AMD downcore' were you can run your quadcore as a triple,dual or single?

I Hunta x

do you reckon that would work with 'AMD downcore' were you can run your quadcore as a triple,dual or single?

only if taking the cores offline allows you to get a higher fsb, my Q6600 didnt get any higher with just 1 or 2 cores enabled than it did with 4,
