With this motherboard:

With this motherboard, you can do just about anything: it can hold up to 24 GB DDR3 Memory running at 2000mhz, it has 7, yes 7, PCI-e 2.0 slots which means you can put 2 4870 X2s in Quadfire mode, 3 GTX 285s in 3-way Sli and and add a 9800 GT to run the PhysX engine. Also, with this motherboard, if you're more interested in 3D rendering, Movie making, or Photoshop CS4, you can also put in 1 Nvidia Quadro FX card and 3 Nvidia Tesla cards for the ultimate Workstation PC. The only thing I'm wondering at this point is: how much is it gonna cost? =p

Looks like just another nvidia fanboy show again =( Nice motherboard, but kind of useless since you can only use half the pcie slots if you're on air.

I don't know why you call him an Nvidia fanboy, he has videos showing off ATi cards.

What's new, most everyone knows by now that kow gets his panties in a bunch every time the name Nvidia is mentioned. And btw, kow, they clearly show 3 air cooled dual slot GPUs fitting on it, along with a single slot 9800 for PhysX. Oops, I mentioned another N word, more bunching.

The only thing I thought was kinda funny is the only "review" currently on this MB on Newegg is one Trubritar posted suggesting people check out their review on it, which is only a preview at this point. Shameless advertising, though I do agree with their cons, price and mem OC required. You can get a $200 X58 MB from Gigabyte that comes stock with a 2000MHz bus, no OC required.

I would add another nit pick though. Despite the CEB form factor, there are no dedicated slots for audio cards PCI or Pci-Ex. If you wanted a dedicated PhysX card as they suggest WITH a great sound card (cuz what's great physics without great sound), you'd have to limit yourself to 2x SLI and waste an entire Pci-Ex 16x slot on a sound card that would be limited to very few choices, namely Creative based cards or the Xonar.

The thing I thought was really funny, was his t-shirt that had a picture of his head and said "Woah!" :lol: Also, yeah I noticed too there are no sound card slots; odd, but who knows they may fix it later on in a future build.

LMFAO

It's certainly a nice board, and If you had, I dunno, watercooled Tri-SLI and PhysX with a couple of those PCI-E RAID SSDs, that'd be pretty sweet, might take some mix-and-match though to get everything to work right.

Its a hell of a board that's for sure. Its like the definition of overkill though unless your out to set some world wide benchmarking records or something...

If I had hundreds of thousands of dollars (or possibly millions)that would form the basis for my super-computer, most definitely.

You have to admit, I haven't seen one video of his where ATI GPUs were the centrepiece.

How would you fit that RAID SSD? 3 double-slot cards + 1 single-slot card = very little room for anything else PCI-e.

You have to wonder if with all this talk of triple and quad SLI, if Intel will come out with a CPU that's clocked higher.
