    Looks like a good board for a serious folding machine - one of these and seven GTS250's? Pretty good combo.

    I can't even imagine how MANY power supplies you'd need for that. But I'd sure love to see one system like that. ^^

    When 4 PCI-E slots just isn't enough.

    The ATX Spec size mobo's have the space for 7 expansion slots, they just used 7 PCI-E slots in this one.....

    Well.. look how low the PCI-E slots sits, on most (or atleast some) boards the top PCI-E slot sit right under the IO ports.

    It sure won't fit my chase, but who would use a standard case when they can afford/have the need for such a board.

    What DBA said, this board could potentially have 9 slots, its defiantly longer than the ATX spec.

    if you look closely, it's got 4 holes on the right, with the 3rd one next to the SATA connectors being ATX standard. so the last 3 PCIe slots are not meant to be there, they are not ATX standards.

    Genuine question - Can you get single slot cooled GTS250 cards? It looks like to use all seven slots you can't use double slot cooled cards.

    Not directly, but you can get single-slot full-cover waterblocks and single-slot GeForce PCI brackets...

    I noticed the 2x 8 pin socket, how much power does it need?

    I like the colour scheme, although not overwhelming, it's different and still pleasant.

    I can't figure out what will be the number after UD... If only there was a giant clue on the board, anywhere, it could be on the board on something also big... :p

    It's definitely a 9, it would be stupid to have a 6 when 'Gigabyte' is written above it.

    When can we get enlarged pictures on news stories??
