    Foxconn is showing off its impressive new Quad CrossFire motherboard at CES, which features no less than 10 slots - four PCI-E 16x, four PCI-E 1x and two standard PCI. The motherboard also has a watercooled northbridge and southbridge. I’ll let the pictures say the rest.

    They'd also have to make a very special case for that thing.

    Nice copper tubing, must be for water cooling. Definitely a custom case, for the uber-enthusiast!

    foxconn are producing some nice stuff.. the water cooling for the chipset is probably needed with that many "heaters" in the case..

    On one hand it's pretty sweet, but on the other hand when you start needing 4 graphics card to run a game at the specs you want, it has to start making you wish they would just make 1 card to do it. I know from a business aspect that might not make the money, but from a consumer perspective I'm getting a little fed up with "multiples". This is like the next mach 3 razor for men, 3 blades, then 4, NO FIVE!!!

    :banghead: Stop the madness!!! Just make 1 good card that costs as much as 4.... please.... :eek:

    EDIT: btw, anyone know how work on multi-core GPU's is coming?

    Anyone notice the red and black wire coming from the northbridge?

    I bet its a TEC/LC system...judging from where those wires come out of (in-between die and NB heatsink...)

    I want to see a video of that getting fired up, and watching the lights in the expo center start to dim...

    Seriously, when you need a TEC AND WC for the NB, it's getting pretty extreme.

    We need more nuclear power plants in America... like real ones...

    I think 1000+ watts are going to be necessary for all these cards. Imagine if you put in 4 3870 x2s.... Then to top it off cool everything with ln2....god that'd be crazy (yeah suicide run, but still crazy)
