After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
The overall design of the Flaming Blade is not hugely different from the BloodRage. Motherbord cooling is very similar and colors still remain true to the awesome Ninjalane color Scheme. Overall the board is very pleasing to the eyes, and the layout is very well thought out. We only found a few items that seemed out of place, the first being the flat vs 90 degree SATA connectors and location of the CMOS reset. Both are minor issues and likely never noticed by most users.
Fully featured gaming board
Nice set of overclocking controls
Layout supports SLI and Crossfire systems
Awesome color scheme
XMP profiles do not work properly and place setting in dangerous areas
Active cooling would have been nice without adding to much cost
