    The new heatpipe design looks like its going to make it a lot more difficult to get your hands in there to fit cpus, gfx cards etc :/

    Why the stupidly huge heatsink on the northbridge? There isn't a memory controller there anymore!

    this northbridge heatsink is like an add-on card, you can see detailed pictures in "Preview: Gigabyte EX58 Extreme Motherboard" at CPU3D.com, so you can work without it if you don't overclock, the same is with watercooling.

    the Extreme there probably isn't going to be in most people's price bracket, they say pricing is unknown but that is the top end of Gigabyte's i7 boards, probably £170 or more.

    from what i have seen so far id say 170 is pretty reasonable in comparison to some. Im sure Novatech had some up a few days ago and the cheapest one there was closer to £200 if not more.
