    So either this or a P6T7. Has EVGA figured out their nforce chip performance problems since this will probably be like the Asus board in that it was 2 nforce chips. Probably would make for an interesting workstation board.

    7 pci-e are cool. but using it practicle is not likely. first whats the lane bandwidth? using quad sli on 8x lanes is pointless. 2, even though shit is moving to pcie this is still pointless.

    10-phase digital PWM power design for the CPU that can provide up to 600W of power to the CPU for extreme overclocking.

    600W for what? :banghead:

    I call it simply marketing...
    but I have to also admit: this is a great board anyway

    600W means instant meltdown :nutkick:
    I you can cool a 200W heatpower, you are already has a full fridge :)

    oh.... how rubbish.

    I'm waiting for 10-way SLI personally. *looks at the time

    And to justify my need for 10 cards in SLI... its simple.

    Gfx cards just cant handle games all by themselves these days... oh wait. oh, they can? HOW STUPID!:banghead:

    Oh I have no interest in SLI what so ever...

    I just want enough slots to run independent SATA controllers & USB3 Controllers at FULL Speeds instead of this half data rate unified crap we get built in now & Proper sound cards that don't sound like all these onboard garbage chips ... and hell maybe even some nice Video IN / OUT boards for makin homemade 3DHD porn...

    OH and a proper dedicated network card with its own controller that does'nt eat CPU time...

    (BECAUSE THEY DO - LOOK IT UP)

    Edit : Stand alone controllers on their own cards perform WAY WAY WAY better that the integrated ones , as (assuming you buy a decent one ) they have their OWN controllers for each channel instead of sharing 1 processor for 4 or 6 channels (SATA / USB / WHATEVER) and this MOBO finally re-opens those doors that have been closed since PCI got shunned and we went down to having 2 MAYBE 3 max usable slots on an average mobo - After your GTX hogged all the other space.

    And I could go on forever...

    And I might...

    No not really...

    Take a close look at the board pic.

    "Seems like" slots 1, 3, and 5 are at x16 if the slot below them is unoccupied, otherwise you'll be at x8. Slot 7 is always at x16.

    Can pre-order on EVGA store for $449.99.

    It uses two NF200 chips over the two x16 ports of the X58. So it's: x16/NC/x16/NC/x16/NC/x16 when doing quad-SLI. Each x16 slot uses switching to give away 8 lanes to its immediate neighbour, if populated.

    I don't think I could picture 7 single slot cards all in a row x.x
    But would be epic indeed.

    I hope somebody find a way to do X-fire for graphics with 3 way SLI for Physx to make all 7 slots Occupied.That would be the greatest thing.

    I missed this and I bet some of you too:
    The new EVGA X58 Classified 4WAY SLI should bring some joy to Folding@Home fans, but the bad side of the story is that it needs a PC chassis that has at least ten expansion slots as this one is based on XL-ATX form factor. -Fudzilla

    Fools with it's 7 slots that are much lower than usually.

    It's all in the article and brought up again in the tread :)

    While they can call the 4-Way whatever they want (XL-ATX), I cringe that they call that puny 3X board at 12 x 10 an E-ATX.

    Wicked board, the XL-ATX form factor is too big for me.. and TBH i don't see any need for this board right now. Nevertheless EVGA rocks! *drool
