Oh my God this is an awesome board. Im betting it retails for like $400 USD though. I see they have an X-Fi type card but not the X-Fi DSP. I do like it though. Id love to see a review on it (too bad they wont make an AMD one :D)

Easily Upgrade CPUs with CPU Level Up
With CPU Level Up, gamers will be able to easily obtain CPU boosts to suit their gaming needs. All they have to do is select their desired CPU model from a list in the BIOS. Once it is chosen, the system will do the rest of the work and fine-tune the original processor to run at the speed of the desired CPU. Obtaining CPU boosts never been as easier!
What a farce. I would much rather take my FSB (or quickpath) from default 200 to 230, than to select "My CPU current is Q6600" and "My target CPU is Q9550" (footnote liability notice: ASUS takes no responsibility for the new speed not working and resulting in bluescreen and loss of data or permanent damage to CPU, memory or mainboard).

Asus FTW, I've been pretty happy with their boards lately. I don't think overclocking wise there is going to be too much of a difference then the previous ones tho.

been my experience that the "cpu level up" feature doesn't work so well anyhow.

Cutting edge technology with DDR2.

It's probably a great board like the original Maximus. Seems more marketing to keep sales going.
