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.
