    Epic. Above all expectations. Every single complaint I might have had has been covered...

    Yet I'm not buying one.

    Looks great, packed with features I am buying one to tinker with till SR3 comes out. Not too sure about the Fan on teh X79 chipset though. Looks abit feable. Good excuse to water cool .

    Not liking the heatsinks. The board sports an excellent set of features, though.

    I agree on that heatsink but I am sure EK will make a decent waterblock for it.

    I don't like the strange expansion slot layouts that some of these boards are coming with. For the cost of these things you'd think they would let you pick where to install things?

    also, it is safe to say these boards don't need the chipset heatsink fan unless something really really hot is going on. if they're designed right, the fan can/will probably be OFF under most normal loads.

    The top model is represented by the Rampage Extreme 4. It incorporates the active cooling system chipset, while the Asus engineers have confessed that the choice of an active system was made at the time or the variant of the chipset Patsburg which was to be used was the version manager port SAS. A difference on the TDP of 11 watts which is no longer the order of the day. Result the system has remained active, but may be disabled in the BIOS.

    u think BD needs thermo ? nope bro NO CB chips never needed thermo (u need it just to see if contact is good 20 degrees to 0 then it's useful)

    what's the price of Fluke 52II ? i remember paid +300eu with warranty in italy....

    Ok ok, point taken... But, SNB/SNB-E, I wouldnt use more powerful than SS... DOnt really see the point in integrating a quite expensive feature, when it is not needed - in my book, it is as useless as lets say... "G1".

    I paid, 120 Euro or so, for 4 readouts and 2 probes..

    First time I've felt casual by a motherboard.

    Don't get me wrong, the ultra-hardcore-overclocking-as-a-day-job few will love this but there are some things that have me wondering;

    1 lan port on a board that's going to cost as much as a very reasonable system? Really?
    Where is the sas? I understand they are splitting patsburg into various grades with features missing but why does this not get the top of the line chip? That cooling system can easily handle it.
    Those slides. Wow. Advertising soldering, temp reading ports and a huge OSD dongle. Mad.

    2011 needs decent well thought out and feature laden boards to set itself from 1155. This hits the nail square on the head for "3xtr3m3" overclocking but it doesn't come across as a 24/7 board or one with a tonne of non-oc features after you're done being mad.
    I need/want 4 slots (3 gpu's and a raid card) and a pair of lan ports. Looks like SR3 will be the only way as the P9X79's are a bit too 'casual' for my liking. (yeah, yeah)
