I don't see any "Beefy" heat sinks, I find this odd.
It looks like a vanilla board.
"Finally, Sapphire bundles in its proprietary Mainboard TriXX software for Windows-based overclocking in case you're not comfortable playing around in the BIOS."
Personally if you are not comfortable playing around in the BIOS you probably should not be overclocking your machine...
I agree ThunderBird no huge heatsinks is a nice thing making it easier to fit high end equipment onto the board but it is odd to see considering all the other boards I have seen pictures of lately.
Looks like the heat-sink on top of the Z69 chip set should be fine and Sapphire uses the upper end Diamond black chokes and high quality capacitors just like the high end GPUs they make.Plenty of room around the socket which is nice .Lot;s of breathing room and some postie air flow should keep this mobo cool.Lot's of features for the overclocker and would be interesting to see what Sapphire did with the TriXX software as compared to Asus EFI which is very nicely done.

Look At this view. It sticks up a little, but it's not as bad as others that I've seen.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
Doesnt look like anything special to me, pretty much all SB boards have an auto oc feature these days. Price better be good because competition is stiff.
