    I have found the bestest M/B ever!

    http://www.maximumpc.com/article/new...hymn_republica

    This X58-based Core i7 board features support both Tri-SLI and CrossFire X, six DDR3 DIMM slots, EAX 4.0 software support, an audio card riser, heat pipes, LCD poster displays and a joystick and probe ports to connect your multi-tester.

    One feature the board doesn’t have that we expected was support for Nvidia’s nForce 200 chip. Instead of the Nvidia hardware, Asus has SLI certification for up to three-way SLI in a x16/x8/x8 configuration. There’s no word as to whether Asus plans to offer a board with an nForce 200 part in it yet.

    I was checking this board out as well recently. Its pretty impressive.

    Glad to see a mainstream board break the 8GB barrier. You always had to go up to a workstation class board previously.

    Yeah, no kidding. The Core i7 is going to give in many ways 25% more performance. Put it into that beast and you got one hell of a machine.

    Will someone ever use all of these features to the max?
