    DDR3 2000 Mhz sounds very nice. I wonder if it will have that divider?

    i love the look of this one and the extreme but the only reason i would up upgrade from my croshair lll is if these boards show better overclocking ability :D

    im sure crosshair GENE is coming mid refresh its too big a money maker for asus to stay away from

    They got it to 900 over in a previous gigabyte interview i watched, so wouldnt be suprised if it went even higher 25 ect. bottleneck = gone.

    I've hit 975mhz mem on Crosshair3, so 2000 seems doable, given the right cpu.

    I'm holding out for the Crosshair IV extreme or the MSI 890FX board, but this looks like a great board!

    added to top unboxing and the top also i didn't think there was a light on it but on this one the ASUS words light up in red and the extreme has the ROG symbol light. At least that's wot it looks like from some angles?

    i kinda wish since its "ROG" and the slots are lined up for perfect for tri fire (which this bored should have pushed cause the advert would go hand in hand) that they all ran 16X

    the EVO will be 2x 16X
    the ROG Crosshair IV Formula 2X 16X (then 16 8 8) when populated
    the ROG Crosshair IV Extreme (i think is all 4 16X) everything else is apeshit on it.
    So i duno yet. but looks fun
