A nice black PCB with some vivid blue heatsinks adds some class to this A75 board. You can also notice it is full size ATX and uses a heatpipe to go along with the heatsinks. This is also the only board which has CrossFireX support to go along with triple slot spacing. The board has 4 fan headers, 3 of them are PWM 4-pin.

This is the only mATX board in this round up. It has two heatsinks, one for the VRMs and one on the FCH. There is triple slot spacing for the first slot, but the last slot is directly wired to 4x PCI-E lanes of the FCH. A GIGABYTE classic baby blue PCB goes with the blue slots. Sadly this board only has 2 yes two fan headers, 1 of them is PWM 4-pin.

Here we have a black PCB with some gray and white slots to match. The first PCI-E 16x slot has only dual slot spacing, but the second PCI-E 16x slot is 4x wired to the FCH just like on the GIGABYTE A75M-UD2H. This board is a bit less wide than the ASUS F1A75-V Pro. This board has 3 fan headers, 1 of them is PWM 4-pin.
