    PCI-E 3.0 is supported by X79 motherboards, but it's unlikely to be officially supported by Sandy Bridge-E. Rather, Ivy Bridge-E will probably feature all the missing goodies we wanted from the upcoming CPUs :thumb:

    So I'll be buying a chip that may well be obsolete within a few months? Hmmm.

    Ivy Bridge-E is scheduled for approximately Q1 2013 :/

    My Bad... was thinking ordinary IB. Well.. that's not too bad then. Still.. I Was hoping for more from SB-E.

    Well, Ivy Bridge also supports PCI-E 3.0 :D

    I agree though, but we've got to remember this chipset is aimed at workstation users, not just gamers. They haven't really got a use for 3.0.

    I need a rig for both uses. I game, and I do heavy image and video work. I suppose, even if clock for clock, SB-E on a core for core basis is no stronger than SB, I still have a bandwidth advantage. It just seems an expansive advantage at the moment.

    I cannot comment on PCIe 3.0 sorry. CPU features are NDAd. Motherboards are fine.

    Like LGA1366 and 1155, I expect LGA2011 to be a 3-year socket. I've not seen roadmaps though (honestly, that's not just a statement to get out of NDA :p), but that's what Intel has always been alluding to whenever it talked high-end because X79 and X58 are really aimed at entry-level server, and you don't go changing server stuff quickly. Of course, nothing is announced until it's announced!!

    So I don't know that much about raid and onboard controllers but have a question about these new boards:
    From what I may have read in this thread the new boards are having 4 x sata III ports? but in pairs on separate controllers?
    Does this limit us to (for example) two separate raid 0 arrays but making something like 4 x sata III drives in raid 0 not possible?

    Sorry if I just didn't read things correct or don't understand raid enough ;)

    They are two separate SATA 6G controllers. You could do it, but it would be in Windows via software.

    While I was checking mobos...

    Ok, don't know if anybody checks here any more. Nonetheless I found another m-ATX board. This time it is from MSI

    MSI X79AM-GD45
    [​IMG]

    BTW it only supports 1.5v memory.

    found it here (MSI website)

    think i saw that on scan the other day, bloody amazed they managed to get all that on an m-ATX board, I seem to remember bindi said that asus won't be doing an m-Atx board i.e. the Asus Gene, because it was to complicated or something along those lines.

    yay... more info on the Rampage IV Gene motherboard

    [​IMG]

    seems to be that it will be 4 channels of RAM only (down from 6 in the R II/III Gene). still you can pack that LGA 2011 proc on to that small space so I guess its ok...

    also loving the chunky heatsinks...although I question the position of the 3rd SATA port on the bottom right of the motherboard.
