    Interesting. Was kind of hoping they'd go in an ROG direction for their dual 2011.

    My last ASUS dual socket system was a bit of a fiasco to be honest. I'm interested, but I'll wait.

    That is a ugly board!
    But maybe it's a good overclocker.

    Has there been any more mention on that 1366/2011 Hybrid board that Asus had as that engineering sample months and months ago?

    Wonder if they will end up going down the ROG road to have something to compete with EVGA based off the somewhat success of the SR-2.

    Impressive piece of machinery. If it overclocks well it is the ultimate folding machine. Imagine 14 water cooled cards (7 x GTX 590s) and 12 i7 cores (2 x Sandy Bridges) all overclocked at their highest possible. It could easily pull numbers better than 10 average PCs and all in one "small" SSI CEB case... like I said quite impressive.

    Now all we need is the $7000 to build the machine and a nuclear plant to power it (even though I suspect 2 x 1500w PSUs may be enough)...

    The E5 Xeons go up to 8 Core 20MB Cache

    Plenty of folding power! (and large power bill lol)

    Personally I would only go with TYAN or SuperMicro when it comes to serious boards like that

    Considering this is a workstation board (not ROG obviously), why is it lacking SAS?

    Also, has anyone seen the internal connections at the bottom? I was wondering how many USB 3.0 connections this guy will support, amongst other things.

    Besides that, it looks like a board that's easy to WC.
    You must [not] advance.

    Since it uses Xeon X5's that means probably no or very little overclocking Sounds like more of a server board too rather than desktop related. I hope this isnt the dual 2011 board ASUS was talking about along with EVGA as I was really hoping to see a great dual socket client system that can overclock too.
    Rig 1:
    ASUS P8Z77-V
    Intel i5 3570K @ 4.75GHz
    16GB of Team Xtreme DDR-2666 RAM (11-13-13-35-2T)
    Nvidia GTX 670 4GB SLI

    Rig 2:
    Asus Sabertooth 990FX
    AMD FX-8350 @ 5.6GHz
    16GB of Mushkin DDR-1866 RAM (8-9-8-26-1T)
    AMD 6950 with 6970 bios flash

    Yamakasi Catleap 2B overclocked to 120Hz refresh rate
    Audio-GD FUN DAC unit w/ AD797BRZ opamps
    Sennheiser PC350 headset w/ hero mod

    It is a -WS (WorkStation) PCB. Not sure why anyone would expect overclocking on it.

    P9X79 WS also is a workstation motherboard and it has no problems overclocking.

    Because its Asus and all previous WS boards have had overclocking? Overclocking relies on Intel leaving the CPU's multiplier and/or bus unlocked anyways.

    All along the watchtower the watchmen watch the eternal return.

    You guys seem to forget that SB-E has limited BCLK overclocking..
