    Wait... if the board uses the C606 chip, then why is X79 in the board's name? Did they originally intend to use the X79 or is it just a screw up?

    C606, technically, is X79, but a different grade. Both are "Patsburg", but of varying quality. There are like 5 or 6 different versions, that back this time last year, were refered to as Patsburg-S or Patsburg-T, or other letters follwing "Patsburg".

    Today they are know as follows:

    All expect the X79 version are used as workstation or server-grade PCH's, while X79 is reserved for desktop use.

    So, to call the board X79, is as accurate as C606. I personally wanted to highlight that this was not "just X79", so now you know, and thanks for asking.;)

    Great Review I like your work!
    Now this is a sexy board! I wanted to do a red themed build, but now i'm going to have to do a blue and black one with MB!

    EDIT: Dang just realized this board is E-ATX won't fit in the case I wanted...
