    That looks way better then the extreme.
    Shame it doesn't have a 2nd bios and more pci-e caps.
    It does have dual eps though which is nicier then the extreme, but if you take a look the extreme has extra caps after the pwm.
    I wonder how it clocks the mem compared to the extreme.

    Nice looking board though, except maybe the south bridge heatsink.
    Mostly functional heatsink setup too.
    Also can't beat the dual lan and the full setup of pci-e slots (this is how it should be...).

    The extreme is definitely still the best clocker from the looks of it in my opinion.
    IF.. the extreme didn't exist this might be the one I would go for.

    I like the color scheme and heatsink design.

    All of the things I care about (dual identical NICs allowing teaming, debug LED & OC buttons, beefy CPU power provision, full complement of PCIe slots, full complement of USB3.0), none of the things I don't (WiFi, streaming capture chips, other bells and whistles). Would be nice to see some closeups of the socket area and to get an idea of the sorts of options the BIOS will allow.

    I'm personally considering the EVGA FTW X99. I'm just waiting for reviews. I did however have the P9X79 WS back in the day when it was first launched. Great board but horrible color scheme. Love this new board tho

    At least ASUS got it right with the colour scheme on this one, because their previous WS boards really looked horrible with a strange colour scheme and cheap looking heatsinks.

    I was too until I discovered it didn't have M.2 or SATAe -

    Boards at the same price and lower have M.2 standard, some Ultra M.2 - this is pretty unacceptable if you ask me.


    I think investing in a modern, brand new platform with new standards like DDR4, but no support for next-gen SSDs is kinda redundant and a waste..Just my opinion though.

    I'd guess priority is now shifting to SATA express and to a lesser extent M.2.

    Anything with 8x288 pin drr4 is a must in my book. Glad most are doing that.

    Looks that way.

    Out of interest though, I haven't seen any Sata Express drives yet?

    Or just not in the mainstream consumer channels anyway (or I'm under a rock somewhere).

    You do know it's not polite or wise to yank the chain of someone with a heart condition I assume!

    Going from the review above it seems it may have 2 plx chips .
    I guess when they added all those 16x slots, they must of thought they needed the lanes to go with them :\.
    That kinda sucks...
