Nice find Wbabt007, that thing looks armed to the teeth lol. One hell of a system you could build out of that... If they make boards that are similar and on budget end of things I may pick one up. If I could afford this one it's a beast... but for a 1K desktop this wouldn't make sense... but that is definitely bleeding edge technology!

Looks like we don't have a lot of desktop computer enthusiast on Tech inferno or they hated my thread, lol but is all good.

As you'll see from my sig, I'm definitely a desktop fan. Just that I'd heard about these boards a while back, they cost loads and 1366 is a dying socket. On the flipside, they look great, and have some really cool features depending on what gear you already have.

I might build a SB E desktop when the time comes next year. For now though with the M18x on it's way, I'm more than set.

I completely agree with you Brian, with a m18x-R1 on the way is hard to even think about desktop computers and as Jimbo indicated this Motherboards are not brand new.

I decided to post them because they just won and award and to be honest if I was going to build a desktop I would consider them. They have many features that I personally haven't seen even in high end motherboards before. I specially like the sound sub system as well as the network controller and the bios redundancy.
