    "Of the PCI-E slots, the four main ones can be used for CrossFire, with two cards receiving 16 lanes of bandwidth each, or four cards receiving four lanes apiece."
    Forgive me if I'm wrong, but won't 4 cards get 8 lanes each...

    Yes, true. I got stuck in fours. The 8x8x8x8x is correct in the features list though

    It looks awfully nice, but no real performance advantage. Bah, I was looking forward to assembling a hexacore AMD rig this summer.

    Seems like MSI needs to go back do the drawing board so I can overtake Asus. Btw, is there any company making waterblocks for MSI high-end motherboards? I only see waterblocks for Asus and EVGA

    C4F is £10 cheaper and a much better overclocker, M4A89GTD ProUSB3 is a bit of a pig to OC but can get there with patience and luck. Any chance of a review of the C4E or MSI NF980-G65?
