Like with the Gigabyte one posted recently, the idea is nice. I like clean builds. But I feel like this could be executed better. The side mounted ATX power and SATA ports is good. But the back mounted USB, audio and CPU power will only work with cases made for this. So while it is ATX, it's really not compatible with ATX cases and is basically a new standard or revision to the standard. If they side mounted more of the other connectors then it would be more compatible with existing systems. Maybe only do 2 or 4 SATA ports on the front side to make room for Audio, Front Panel and more USB headers there as well. For the CPU power, having it side mounted on the top would likely still work with existing cases but then new cases could include a cover or easily hidden area like many now having along the front side of the motherboard now and that would be nice and hidden as well.
