If you have run into motherboards branded with the Intel logo, you most likely did so in a server room as that is the market they have focused on.  With the arrival of Ivy Bridge and Panther Point this has changed, the DZ77GA-70K motherboard even sports a skull on its heatsink to prove it.  The board comes with a fair number of extras, The Tech Report found a mouse pad, a 3.5" drive bay insert with two USB 3.0 ports, a Bluetooth dongle, and PCIe 1x 802.11n WiFi card.  Intel has also included their implementation of UEFI, called the Intel Visual BIOS, though you don't get to see all the screens in this preview as that would spoil a few surprises.  It is still worth checking out; as we impatiently await the release of Ivy Bridge.

I really like Intel's choice of aesthetics, it still comes off clean with heatsinks that actually look like they were designed to work, rather than be decoration.

Less is more. :)
