    Foxconn continues to impress with yet another high-end Quantum Force motherboard. Again only for Intel processors, the NVIDIA nForce 790i Ultra SLI powered board offers full 3-way SLI and Intel 45nm CPUs support, as well as built-in northbridge water cooling. This Dreadnought version supports up to 8GB of DDR3 only memory. The two removable BIOS chips, the post LED indicator and the 8-phase power are only a few of the great things presented in this mobo.

    Wow, what's up with Foxconn lately? They put on their try-pants finally? :laugh:
    Too bad its DDR3-only.

    well think about it, if your gonna blow this kinda cash on a single board, you can afford DDR3 anyway, as highspeed DDR2 and DDR3 share similar price and DDR3 clocks higher and can outpreform DDR2

    Definitely a nice board, but is the NB so hot that it needs to be watercooled?
