    Intresting PCI Express slots, would mean its only Tri SLI capable not quad which you would expect from a high end board.

    Why are the DIMM slots on two sides of the CPU Socket ? I don't see any sense in doing that.

    Not sure if the fact the ram is quad channel makes a difference or not, the other early teaser boards all looked the same either side.

    No LN2 cup for chipset cooling? Disappointing, Foxconn!

    Re: News - Foxconn working on high-end X79 mainboard

    why do motherboard manufacturers not change the direction of the 24 pin connection? Or at least offer an adaptor/ widget to give people a choice. A p8 and p24 widget would be cool.

    (if anyone starts making these as a result of my post I just want a lifetime free supply of them, cheers )
