    Hot, but overkill for 95% of us.

    Looks more like the skyrise from Blade Runner than an actual motherboard.

    I've been waiting to see when Asus would intergrate the USB3 and SATA6 on their boards. When will we see Bit-Tech benchtests?

    Looks fantastic though.

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. I've seen CMOS glisten in the dark off the shoulders of an Asus board.......

    I love the design!

    You'd be surprised what you can achieve with sketchup. Check out the design contests in the modding forum some time!

    As much I love to see best being surpassed by the latest awesome thing coming out, I hate myself when I remember I can afford one these well after it becomes a piece of junk :/ GO ASUS \../

    I've seen the new Asus Crosshair 4 Formula and the Extreme from CeBIT from a brazilian site. BT you are a tad forgetting about that 2 mobos. Thought I would see some coverage done by you, I know you have a lot of news from the CeBIT but shame on you.

    The only thing I can point my finger at the new Crosshair range is the fact that they use the 890GX chipset from AMD and not the 890FX, when that chipset comes out with a high-end board, then I'll get my "jizz in my pants" moment.

    Oh, one last thing, Crosshair 4 Formula had that mosfet heatsink design with a slight change to the NB and SB. The Extreme, if I recall properly, was a tad different
