    Super cool! I really don't think that dual-socket motherboards are really necessary for the desktop market. Either way I'd take it for free.:D

    is it just me or does that hs look like a waterblock(looks completely closed in, no fins visible, etc.) with a fan on top? and is it just me or is that a threaded hole for a water cooling barb?

    can't be a water-block. If a pipe goes in there, how can I put in a 2slot video card?

    Yup, it's just a hole. on a quick glance you could be fooled thinking it's a hole with thread. Lighter note: The board comes with fun-holes too...yippie!:laugh:

    What looks like threading actually are the ribs of the heatsink...from Morgoth's pic
