    shame about those that purchased a first revision board. Sounds good for a potential buyer though!

    Who buys Intel boards for OCing? I would rather spend less/little more for an ASUS or DFI.

    lol, thanks I guess !


    Lets see,

    You want to play Crysis with your 2 shiny new GTX 295.

    You have the choice of buying any mobo without the Hydra chip on it, on which you can overclock i7 to 4Ghz and have about 50-60% SLI scaling.

    OR

    you can buy this Intel Board with Hydra chip, overclock i7 to say 3.4 Ghz and have 95-100% SLI Scaling .

    Which would you pick ?

    Well, I personally think this is a great thing coming from Intel. I have used their boards in many of builds that consist of the customer wanting a good chip and board combo for a low price, we have all seen the combo deals for Intel chips/boards. This is a great way to get a good combo deal with less cash than a enthusist board but the same performance levels(if not better at times) hence, that allows the customer to spend his or her extra funds on a better GPU/HDDs/Mem..etc. I think this will come as a great addition to the "Intel Gaming Community" And like the author states in one of the paragraphs, this truly shows that Intel is using the feedback of the gaming world at hand to make their product that much better.
    I really liked this line: "In the end, you will get a fast board that won't have heatpipes that double as a house for your hamster"

    Yay for Intel.. stepp'n it up a notch :D

    ( awsome find Wolf )
