    My first thought is "When can I have one?"

    You guys going to be getting a review sample of this board?

    i've never like the look of gigabyte boards, but i really like the look of this one and 10 sata, nice to see more than 6 as 6 isnt enough for me, i keep having swap out hdd's for bigger ones which is too expensive, rather than just adding one.

    love the monster northbridge cooling but is that thing on the left of it an on board/pic-e sound card with shielding or what?

    peace

    wtf, floppy and IDE on the extreme board? Personally if i ever got my hands on one of these boards i'd take them off.

    Otherwise, gigabye is getting there styling-wise. I'd love to see a white PCB once though!

    Hmm that actually looks quite nice. A very very welcome change from the 'kids tv' colour scheme we are used to

    No, two x16, one x8 - there are 36 lanes from X58. This is why X58+NF200 is needed for "full" 3-way SLI

    No.

    I need it for my own personal use bit-tech testing.

    Anyway, looking froward to the i7 release & benches. How far off is it, anyway?
