MB makers will probably be slapping on add-in chips for it though.
Great Thanks for that, I always find it so hard to find out when a company thinks it's product will be coming out - On that topic Does ANYONE know when the Nvidia 300 Series cards are expected to come out also because I am quite new to this I do not know but - When Nvidia releases a card do we have to wait even longer for companies like EVGA to release there versions of the card and also do they release cards at different times but in the same series So like when a GTX 310 comes out the 395 will be out at the same time (These are just made up names based on the current generation) Or do the cards get released in layers like. In 1 month = the 310 then 3 months later the 395. Thanks for anyone that can help me with that.

Gigabyte's X58A-UD7 also supports USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps. However, both are expensive boards (310 and 350 USD respectively). More boards should come out supporting the new SATA and USB specs, but it will probably be a while before any more are released. Also, if you're doing that kind of OC on a 920 you'll need some good cooling. Unless you're going to try water cooling (you're on your own there) I'd recommend following coolers depending on budget: CM Hyper 212 Plus, Titan Fenrir, Noctua D14. These seem to be the best coolers in each price range.
Okay, I thought the USB 3.0 was not out for a while though? I heard there are boards that support SATA6 but not USB 3.0? Also I think any x58 board will support the Core i9 (Gulftown). I will be using liquid cooling and I already know what I need for that but Thanks.

Thanks again guys.
