ASUS E35M1 M PRO Review

Typical mATX board layout, with the usual ASUS color combination of light and dark blues with a dash of grey here and there.

The blue-colored aluminium heatsink is large, and well it has to be, since the board is meant to be passively cooled.

 ASUS E35M1 M PRO Review

One wonders why are there two different types of clips on its DIMM slots. Apparently the two slots are each made by a different manufacturer and their designs are somewhat different.

ASUS hasn't gotten rid of this bad habit of mixing and mashing visible components like this for years, it unfortunately happens on high-end boards as well. Maybe we can, uh, buy the guy who orders parts a cup of coffee if this gets fixed in the future?
