    Looks like it goes to the underside of the CPU socket.

    A very interesting motherboard... Not to mention the LN cooler setup attached to it. Think ASUS is trying to pitch this one to overclockers?

    Cooling setup for LN2, very sweet. I wonder if they would be so kind as to ship the board with that! Whole new meaning to the goodies that come alongside

    We don't need Heatpipe coolers for the underside of the CPU socket!

    Why couldn't they just do exactly what ECS did with their latest motherboard for Bearlake, where they have both DDR2 and DDR3 on the same board?

    There's two separate boards (one with DDR2 and one with DDR3) - I see where you're coming from, but I think Asus is going down the route of people potentially wanting to install 4 DIMMs.

    As for the cooling tubes, I think they were there to try and hide the board, as I'm fairly sure it wasn't supposed to be shown. It's as if Asus had a spare space on the stand but didn't have anything to go there. The label above the display was very vague "Intel Chipset, Quad Core CPU, etc" but I dug deeper and got more that confirmed my initial thoughts. ;)

    In the article, it said one motherboard will support DDR2 and the other will support DDR3.

    What's up with those copper tube heatsinks on the CPU and GPU? The CPU one appears to have some kind of electrical coil thing going on, which suggests thermo-electric cooling, but it's hard to tell where the heat is dissipated.

    I imagain the LN2 is there for testing as the initial test cpu's need cool tempretures to aproch anywhere near stability and have huge power outputs.
