The layout is nice and minimalistic.

The best things i like in the layout are:

  • the dual reset CMOS switch present in the back panel as well as with the
    on board switches.Useful for both close case clockers and open bench guys.
  • Also the power and reset switch onboard help in quick testing.
  • The space between the PCI-E slots.
  • The component LED for cpu,ram,gpu and boot devices.
  • The LED poster which helps in debugging or troubleshooting)
  • onboard Thunderbolt header.
  • the overall color theme.

A look at the I/O panel
