ASUS Prime Utopia
At first glance, the ASUS Prime Utopia looks like yet another modded computer system, but in reality, it’s a motherboard. This radical design reportedly improves cooling, flexibility, modular I/O, and even sports an on-board OLED dashboard for displaying the technical information. You’ll find PCIe slots on the back, four M.2 slots with a dedicated heatsink, and even a proprietary “Hydra Cortex” fan header that lets you control individual fans independently.

“Asus envisions I/O moving to Mini-PCIe modular components, so features like USB and Ethernet ports could be easily hot-swapped at will. The motherboard also features a 7-inch OLED touchscreen that offers various readouts. Since this would only be useful for transparent or exposed builds, it comes in a Wi-Fi-equipped module of its own so that you can prop it on your desk to monitor system performance and control specific components like the fans,” reports The Verge.
