ASUS P6T Deluxe OC Palm Edition Spotted

To support the upcoming LGA-1366 socket Core i7 processors, motherboard manufacturers have their first-waves of motherboards ready. ASUS for one, has had its P6T Deluxe pictured before several of its competitors could have their flagship motherboards pictured on the internet. Enter P6T Deluxe OC Palm Edition. What's new with this motherboard is that it bundles a gadget ASUS calls an "OC Palm", looking at its visual similarity to hand-held PCs. The device holds controls apart from an LCD screen. What this gadget does is, that it allows you on-the-fly overclocking of several system parameters for which, you would have had to use the system BIOS configuration. The device is handled by software that does the changes, it connects to the motherboard using standard USB interface, and the LCD screen gives the convenience of overclocking even when say playing a game. That apart, the package gives you essentially the same P6T Deluxe motherboard.

Now I was all excited until I saw its software controller. Its bascially a wired remote to control the Asus software suite already present on current boards. Which still means its not a patch on BIOS OCing.

I want something where I can use power saving and OC profiles from the BIOS on the fly. I cant use Asus' "amazing" EPU technology cus I'm OCing in the bios! :wtf:

Are those really 16 phases? Or is it just only like 8 with doubled up ferrites?

on their top products asus usually uses 16 phase power config. i believe that they have done the same thing here but can the i7 oc? i am saying that because of the memory cpu frequencies issues mentioned some time ago here in TPU.

I am buying one, but I won't be buying one until respectable sources (no offence) release some previews and then fully fledged reviews.
