    So is it right to believe that this is the P5WD2-E Pre, with an 8-Phase power?

    and heatpipe?

    2x PCIe x16??? Since when does the i975x have 2x x16?

    Glad to see though they stopped using Marvell controllers...
    Also, noticed they stripped RAID10 from the ICH7R's capability list? ;-)

    i975x has 2 x PCI-E x16, but they become x8 when used together (thats what I think it will be referring to)

    I doubt it will use heatpipes, Asus only uses heatpipes on the nforce chipsets in general because Nvidia chipsets run extremely hot compared to the INtel and ati chipsets.

    okay from the picture it obviously uses heatpipes, which is a bit pointless as i975x has never needed them yet.... I hate heatpipes on mobos as they dont work anywhere near as well in horizontal or upside down (eg V1000, TJ06) cases

    the asus boards that are now in the store for 775 have passive cooling, a heatpipe is the logical "upgrade"
