    Wondering what's going on with EVGA's SR-X motherboard? Well the board still isn't ready for release but EVGA has made progress on it, as is confirmed by a new image provided by the US-based company. This photo showcases the SR-X in a near final stage, equipped with an updated cooling solution made up of four heatsinks (covering VRM areas and chipsets).

    As previously reported, the SR-X comes with two LGA 2011 sockets (it supports Sandy Bridge-E CPUs for single-processor setups and Sandy Bridge-EP CPUs for dual-chip configurations), 12 DDR3 memory slots (up to 96 GB of RAM are supported), two (one 8-pin and one 6-pin) power connectors per CPU, six SATA and four SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) ports, seven PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots (SLI and CrossFireX support is included), PCIe disable switches, voltage read points, a debug LED, dual Gigabit Ethernet, two eSATA ports, 7.1 channel audio, Bluetooth, EVBot support, and six USB 3.0 connectors (four on the back plate, two via a header).

    EVGA is promising more details about the SR-X (a price tag and an availability date maybe) 'soon'. CeBIT anyone?

    Ugly-ass board. Did they get overclocking working on it? Current consensus seems to be that all 2P capable Xeons aren't overclockable at all.

    I 'd prefer eVGA cut off a chunk of that pcb and fashion it into a decent overclocking and 'semi-affordable' mini-itx board.

    man, why cant some mobo manufacturer just make an AMD variant of this...i would totally take 2x4 core Zosmas or 2x6 core Thubans in one board, with 26-32gb ram, if the price of the board itself would not exceed 300€...dammit, i think i even would buy two :D

    What for, exactly? I'd think that you'd get more done for less with a single overclocked Intel hex-core.

    It'd be faster (than a single dual-Thuban-Opteron-hex rig), it'd use cheaper RAM, it'd use cheaper boards, it could use cheaper cases and PSUs, and it'd probably (when overclocked) use about the same amount of power.

    And unlike the AMD server rig, it'd also kick ass in games and the like.

    Man, that comes from someone that uses phenoms for years... they are great for their price, even tho they are not the best performant... of course, it would be a niche product,and surely, no one will ever build one... but, isnt one allowed to dream?;)

    Phenoms aren't 2P capable, therein lies a principle flaw in said plan.

    But sure, dream on.

    Maybe you could go all nostalgia on this: http://www.asus.com/Server_Workstation/Workstation_Motherboards/L1N64SLI_WS/

    It's SLI ready, supports 12 SATA devices, has plenty of PCI-E bandwidth to be getting on with, and in theory a bios could be developed for it to support fairly recent Opterons.

    Sadly they arent, but, in todays modern world, i dont really know if it would be impossible to get it working, even tho it shouldnt be possible... just by using some tricked out technology that isnt talked about in public. Who knows?;)

    Nice versatile board, maybe a little bit too old and useless to buy one tho... but a great collectors item for people that keep their old rigs, when they build new ones :D
