Im loving the mobo layout in pic 2 - the way they have rearranged the cpu & also the RAM kicks ass IMHO

but there is a slight negative with having the cpu top right hand side as I have personally experienced. unless you get a SFF (Small Form factor) CPU cooler & I doubt if you had one of those that it would even help.... the cpu HSF would get in the way of the CD/DVD-Rom/Rw unless the case has been customed especially for the mobo which positions the Roms lower then the CPU.

I dont know anyway this is just an observation. just saying as Ive had a few problems very similar to this in the past & this looks like a possible one

Dual processors (is that for 8 cores??). Look at how thin those video cards are without the fans on them, unbelievable. This is a beautiful board, even if it is an Intel chipset. I love the placement of the memory area as well.

This isn't even ATX, it's not meant to be put in petite cases.

Doesn't anyone see that the gpu has dual connectors in each graphics card...? I've never seen any nvidia cards with dual connectors except in ATI cards.

Sure it is. It's called "extended ATX".

Seems to me that the north / south chipsets are going to burn with that poor dissipation. And thus this work ??? Cause the liquid cooler dont fullfill the WC system ... Something tell me that it will be some time till this come to the streets. But looks like a piece of work.:D
