Looks good to me, and I'm looking for a DDR3 mobo to get soon, but then I've heard lots of negative things about Nvidia mobos compared Intel ones, and x48 is supposedly appearing in a month or two...

To me this falls under the WTH! were they thinking?



The 8800 cards run hot to begin with, where the heck are they supposed to draw air from?

Tbh if they had put the slanted 8800GTS 512 fan on that then it would be fine since there is more space to draw air.

Busted !!

I`d love ABit to throw their dice on this, but I get the feeling they`d bring out a 590i or something >.< Seem to be working harder on making stickers to change the IX38-Max into a IX48-Max.

1 thing I definately wouldn`t do is use dual slot cards for SLI. I mean how the freak are u meant to do stuff without taking gfx cards out. ANDDDD the onboard sound better be freakin good.
