    It seems that enthusiasts can have another choice of brand in the market with the entry of SupremeTec with their Prometheus line of motherboards designed specially for overclockers. A short history of Supremetec International Co., Ltd: the company was founded in the year 2000 and has since then been mainly focused on providing solutions for industrial PCs. Right now, they are officially entering the US market with the first enthusiast motherboard based on Intel P35 chipset, the Prometheus IC2-P35. The Prometheus IC2-P35 will use Swiftech thermal solutions to cool the board's northbridge and southbridge as well as integrated Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi 7.1-channel audio. According to the guys at VR-Zone the board will hit the US$200 price tag when released.

    dose anyone know how there server boards were quality/ performance wise? because last thing we need is another half arsed attempt from a no name company trying to create a enthusiast board, that only half works.
    all that being said it looks like a good board with a good layout *fingers crossed*

    Looks sharp.

    I'm not gonna lie. It's kind of refreshing for a new motherboard contender. It seems all the top brands have been slacking in customer service and RMA ratios.

    I hate when they run pci slots right next to the PCI-e when we all know most video cards take two slots.

    P35 chipset .It officially features just a single full-speed PCI Express x16 slot but you may see motherboard companies adding in a second PCI Express x 16 slot depending on their configuration but they’ll likely only operate electronically at x2 or x4

    the pci-e slots are spaced far apart......me like it.

    are they both full 16x lanes though?

    not necessarly. i have seen boards that do cf in 16x and 4x, like most of the 775x boards. is there an ati based board that supports 16x and 16x for cf? i would imagine so, but idk, not very many ati based boards out there.

    ::nod W1zzard:: Agreed. Its a spec from ATI from what I know.


    I cant wait until you do a review. Id love to see what this board does. It may make me go to the dark side with a c2d build. Couldnt hurt. Im sure the wife would love that computer in the bedroom.
