I do agree. MSI's cheapest board is actually the one that has the most "premium" feel. Although MSI has always had a mediocre design team, the SLI looks very good. And me as an MSI hater is giving kudos to MSI - they have earned it.

I'm seeing a lot of garage-coverings over the back-panel IO-Ports.

Has there been a rash of tornadoes that ripped these out? Maybe earthquakes that crushed them so now these protective structures will save the back-panel IOs? ("Whew! Everything else is flattened but at least I can plug and unplug the stereo jack!")

I admit, I don't keep up with these Architectural PC Digest so much, but are these sturdy coverings in response to some new planetary threat? We just saw a Norwegian company certify that their devices wouldn't cause explosions, even dropped into paint-can shakers of nitroglycerin, so I suppose these new bunker-coverings are part and parcel of this thought process.

Or is this going to be the foundation of the new NASCAR advertising scheme, with logos and badges all over these?
