    At this year's CES EVGA probably turned some heads with its upcoming power supply line but the company had more enthusiast eye candy on display, like the SR-X dual-socket motherboard. Teased a little last year, the SR-X seems to have the same HPTX form factor as its predecessor (the SR-2) but it offers support for the newest LGA 2011 Intel processors (Sandy Bridge-E for single-CPU setups, Sandy Bridge-EP for dual-CPU 'awesomesauce').

    EVGA's dual-socket motherboard includes 12 DDR3 memory slots allowing for up to 96 GB of RAM, two (one 8-pin and one 6-pin) power connector per CPU, six SATA and four SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) ports, seven PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots for SLI or CrossFireX configurations, PCIe disable switches, voltage read points, a debug LED, dual Gigabit Ethernet, two eSATA ports, 7.1 channel audio, Bluetooth, EVBot support, plus six USB 3.0 connectors (four on the back plate, two via a header). The SR-X still hasn't been priced or dated.

    I bet it'll cost ~$600 USD, maybe more.

    that mobo is impressive... so is that "overclockable" power supply.... i'm guessing we'll see a news post soon?

    i love that big passive heatsink, why can't all mobo manufacturers do it? it looks great and it's effective.

    It still remains to be seen if you can BCLK overclock Sandy EP Xeons, otherwise this is no better than a regular dual socket motherboard

    All the power connectors around the cpu area(s) make me wonder how long it will be before we start seeing dual 24-pin mobo connectors :/

    I will let somebody else do the first testing too. The previous (X58) version was not the best OC'er. This one has to be since that's the primary reason (for the average Joe) for buying a 2P mobo (max Gflops before the very expensive 4P solution).

    vrm's have their own coolers and there's no way to design it to cool them, maybe some weird heatpipe routing could do the trick. anyhow, the cooler for the chipset is big enough to keep it quite cool, it's passive and it's not in the way of anything.

    on the second thought, chipsets no longer contain memory controllers so it doesn't matter too much anyway. mine does, though :ohwell:

    You liekly wont see that... there is more than just 12v in the 24 pin and those lines are fine. Its just the 12v (CPU) that needs moar hence why high end boards sport two 8 pin CPU connectors (no need for the sub rails).

    on this board tho there are an 8 pin + 6 pin arrangement for each cpu area, not the more normal 8 pin + 8 pin. I was confused with the 6 pin as I thought that was really only seen near the pci-express slots for more power to those (which this board also has).
