    ASUS ROG MAXIMUS V FORMULA Z77 is the motherboard you are looking for.

    Its water-cooling ready, and it has everything anyone could possibly want.

    Here it is > http://www.sweclockers.com/image/red/2012/03/06/Formula.jpg?t=original&k=539b8f99

    Note: it hasnt been released yet. They decided to make some adjustments to the soundcard solution, its not goin to look like that, it gets released later this week i think.

    I am personally waiting for the Maximus V Extreme, and if it is a no show, the Formula. Just, as in 20min ago, ordered a white NZXT Switch 810 and NZXT HALE90 850W modular PSU :D

    I like the p8 because of the 16x16 pcie 3.0 in case you ever want another lightning.

    Also interested in what others think of that water cooling kit, worth it?
