Looks pretty good, so its just a tweak on the original 790X M2RS right? I want to see the DDR3 boards personally. I know MSI GD70 board is DDR3 and performs quite well.

I want to know why DFI hasn't released any Infinity boards with the newer chipsets. Infinity was always the bang-for-the-buck OCing champ.
