    looks nice, but why isnt the last pci-express slot and the atx power header black / red?

    looks expensive!

    I want one! My P5W-DH is now 3 years old (I bought it mid 2006) and it was expensive back then (£100+) but it goes to show that buying a decent motherboard is the best way to go.

    True, but there's no socket there... does that mean there'll be an *even more expensive* version that supports it?

    Also, do I get bonus points for pointing out that there's 2 PCI-e x1 slots - one below and one *above* the top PCI-e x16 (the top one is very close to the northbridge heatsink, but it's definitely there...)

    They'll either pop it into the final retail version or Intel are putting pressure on people to keep it to p57, which otherwise looks very similar to p55.

    OK, I had the same question, but I think I'll rephrase it. Does anyone know where I can find the layout for the coolers mounting holes? I'd like to modify my water cooling block by making a mounting plate, but so far, I've not managed to find the locations of the holes (ie dimensions, mechanical drawings etc)

    Any ideas peeps?
