In this "BUILD IT" article there is a list of "ingredients" for this Silent Gaming PC. From this list it would appear that this PC can somehow miraculously function without a motherboard. At least two pictures in the article plainly show a motherboard during various stages of the contruction of the machine. I assume that the motherboard is not an especially relevent ingredient where a pc's noise is concerned, but neither are some of the ingredients that are listed in the article. If the motherboard that was used to in this machine was listed in the ingredients what might it have been? I'm just curious. Very good magazine.

2. It uses socket 1366
3. Has 3 PCIe x16 slots
4. Has the word "Xtreme Phase" on the NB heatsink
5. Has the word "Premium" below its 1st PCIe x16 slot
