    Not true, since the memory controller is not in the X58, but in the CPU. The reason why 24GB is max on many X58 board is that Over 4GB memory stick are rare and cost like hell, even tho 4GB memory sticks are also expensive.

    There are couple Dual LGA1366 server boards which support up to 144GB of DDR3, but 96GB is usually max on server boards.

    Per system. Check manual/QVL of ANY 55x0 chipset board.
    Note that boards with 12 slots might actually work with 48GB of non-ECC RAM, but you will not find it on any QVL. And possibly the BIOS might intentionally not allow it.

    guys, guys, thats whats officially supported... im sure you can use more than 24gb even on a single cpu 1366 server board that has the required mem slots for it.

    oh and some here said it is equipped with dual x58, im not too sure about that.
    its possible to use a single x58 ioh for 2 cpus, and more than that, its even possible to do this with cpus that only have 1 qpi link!
    whether intel supports it and allows it is another thing... but in theory you could actually plug in two 920s into a dual qpi link x58 equipped board.
    there would be no direct cpu to cpu qpi link, but so what? yorkfield doesnt have a direct link from cpu to cpu and talks through the chipset and it performs amazingly well...

    Q.: Will this fit my mATX case?!
    A.: No!!! You have to get you a case with a mobo tray of 1m² at least!

    The power supply has to be built for that one.

    P.S. Size DOES matter!

    Thanks for the full mobo shot! Assuming it's not a chop, this is my wet dream. It looks to have about every feature EVGA has ever thrown at a board and it's all color-coded. It looks like it was designed to do nothing but break WR's.

    But the big question is:
    Why does it have an IDE connector? This is definitely the most advanced enthusiast board yet created, I think we can cut it out. No-one spends that much on just a board and processors and doesn't have a SATA optical drive these days or $25 to spend on one. Plus removing it would have allowed the SATA ports to be side-mounted instead.
    Dual CCIE (Route\Switch and Security) at your disposal. Have a Cisco-related or other network question? My PM box is always open.

    UR right. The spacing between the most upper PCI-e slot and the audio jacks is about identical to the XL-ATX mobo in that article.

    The board must be bigger than a normal EATX to place SATA's like that, I was wondering about that 8pin + 6pin combo too, maybe the PSU that it was or is in development from EVGA is being design for this mobo & 4-way mobo in mind? I know this is the higher enthusiast board we ever see for a long time until X68 comes out (assumption) but I'm starting to hate EVGA size adoption

    You can extract the following from the discussion above:

    - the board has the same length as the 4-way, but is wider by a fair bit. That's why I called it Enhanced (CF E759/60) XL-ATX (E762)...

    The size of actual highend boards is really ridiculous. It forces (potential) buyers to get a case out of very few appropriate ones. Maybe that is intended to push the case market (cases which only sell bad *gg* or developement of new ones) to fight the financial crysis

    Wow, I wanted one before but after seeing the full shot I REALLY want one. Not sure if I can afford the CPUs to make it worthwhile to bench though. Best looking dual-socket board ever.

    I agree on the sizes, but pushing the market for bigger cases for these kind of "special" products probably won't happen, since eventually everything will get smaller and a massive case like that would cost a LOT of $$ which could be hard to sell due current economy state, EVGA should make their own case for these kind of enthusiast products
