"for 24/7 a reliable 24/7 operation"
I think you mean "for reliable 24/7 operation". Yay my first grammar nazi post!
can it play Doom?
Man that is a big socket!
Can it play Elite?
Can I play with it?
" five PCI-Express slots, one PCI slot and an Asus "PIKE" optional storage slot for a range of SATA/SAS upgrades."
2x PCI-E x16 slots
1x PCI x8
3x PCI slots
Aww I just bought a K8N-DRE from Asus.. Wonder if they do a next-gen upgrade deal XD (like one of the graphics card makers did a while back)
Hey wait.. is that 2 cmos battery sockets?
And this is an example of a pike card, it shows why the cutout in the board is there
*looks at picture*
*sees NOT ONE of them is right-angled, even though they're all at the edge of the board*
Can I haz it, pwetty pwease?! *.*
*looks in wallet*
Would an amazing mod include this, the 12 core CPUs, a 5870, phase change cooling, and a ludicrous OC all smothered in more RAM than ever thought possible?
This really is just a server motherboard isn't it.
Thought that was already established.
Blast from the past with 1980's color scheme.
The board uses the Flex-E technology which allows 2x PCI-E x8 to be converted to 1x PCI-E x16
Total PCI/PCI-X/PCI-E Slots: 6
Slot Location 1: 1 * PCI 32bit/33 MHz
Slot Location 2: 1 * PCI-E x16 (Gen2 X8 Link)
Slot Location 3: 1 * PCI-E x16 (Gen2 X16 Link) (Auto switch to x8 Link if slot 2 is occupied)
Slot Location 4: 1 * PCI-E x8 (Gen2 X4 Link)
Slot Location 5: 1 * PCI-E x16 (Gen2 X 16 Link)
Slot Location 6: 1 * PCI-E x16 (Gen2 x16 Link for 1U FH/FL Card) (Auto turn off if slot 5 is occupied, MIO supported)
Additional Slot 1: 1* PIKE Slot for Storage expansion
4x PCIe 16x, two bluw two white.
1xPIKE slot in two parts on bottom of board...
bet it could play 24 copys of doom (vms)
should be an folding beast (still more better cost to use i7 930 or i7 8x0 cpu @ 4-4.2 ghz) as that can be done for £500-600
DO WANT. Props to Asus for getting it right, and getting a Pike system on a AMD board.
