Sweet looking board. I wish something like this had existed back when I had everything laid out on work benches. :lol:

:withstupid: Very good looking. I'm really liking what they're doing with the mosfet heatsinks, and, man, look at all of those caps! :)

If I was going P55, this would be pretty high on my list...but, I'm still leaning toward X58 (Gene II)

Now I just need a job :lol:

Shiny caps at that. Bring the bling. A nice Nickel plated HK3 waterblock would look right nice on it.

Wow, I can't wait for the full review! Asus has been a top manufacturer in the past but I had begun to shy away from them for a while. However, with the last few Intel chipsets that have come out they have definitely stepped up the game again.
