    I don't get why they haven't redone the PCI-E since it was known that the x4 going to the PCH isn't an option with the initial Patsburg. Those four lanes could be rerouted to PEG like many other manufacturers have done. It's not too important but still an oversight. The SLI wouldn't need channel switches then.

    They finally dumped stupid PCI slot. I also give it a plus for not having any stupid flat surfaces over heatsinks.

    No PCI? No sound for me; I want to upgrade to the X79 platform next year and need one mobo with PCI slot, I don't mind how many sata ports has or usb 3.0; so EVGA off my list. :)
