    You can only run triple-channel with 3 sticks, I think.

    A = (1)
    B = (0, 2)
    C = (4)
    D = (3, 5)

    So to run triple-channel make sure you use 3 different channels. But if you fill them up you use 4...unless somehow it becomes triple-channel with A, B and D for example while C is by its lonesome as a single-channel?

    Im waiting for an X79 mobo with a 1155 layout design, when every ram slot is a single channel that would be perfect as you can run 8\16GB of ram in quad-channel no probs

    This board looks magnificent, but it hardly feels like an upgrade design-wise compared to e.g. Extreme3 gen 3 board. It's almost same thing with a few twists, such as bigger heat sinks :) Nonetheless, awesome, I guess theres no need to change perfection!

    The reason that's unlikely is because wiring four channels through just one side of the socket would mean several additional PCB layers. If you spread it in groups of two on either sides of the socket, you can maintain the "typical" number of PCB layers with your design. On LGA1155 boards, there is wiring of just two channels that heads out east of the socket.

    I seriously doubt you'll ever see the kind of motherboard design you're describing.

    very nice looking board but I still think its lacking on the USB 3.0 for being the highest end model. and the legacy PCI slot should be gone I would much rather see a pci x1. thats very interesting how the ram is separated in groups of 3

    Nice looking mobo, but I thought these new motherboards were coming with 4 DIMM's each side o_O

    I count 2 USB 3 ports on the IO panel and an internal USB 3 header.

    It has USB 3.

    I know it has 2 ports on the IO, but what I meant was it needs more of them, I don't see why they just can't put more on when it comes to these high end $250+ mobo's.

    I'm a person that can't stand it when new tech comes out and we wait 1-2years before we use it. It just slows down our progress to new and better tech. If they make it why not just go all out, its better in every way.

    It's mainly a 2 fold problem, 1 non naitive support, and intel has yet to officially support it, once they do everyone will follow.

    Looks like trouble for double slotted video cards and running more than one with that spacing.

    damn sexy board

    I think it is a good idea to include 1 PCI slot during this long transitional phase to all PCI-E products

    I agree I still use a PCI sound card.

    seems like PCI E is taking a long time to completely snuff out PCI, same with SATA against IDE n USB against PS/2, Advantage of PS/2 is the Nkey rollover for keyboards

    ISA took generations to change to PCI, floppy to CD, CD to DVD.. etc etc. progress is always slow.
    [H]@RD5TUFF says thanks.

    Looks like a fast MB. I like the 6 slot ram design. 4 slots for quad channel seems like a good route to go for over clocking ram. Very nice.
