This review game me more questions than answers, especially in multi-GPU scaling. I'm in no hurry to purchase X79 as I think the picture will get clearer once PCI-E 3.0 cards are released. But it doesn't hurt to ask though;

assuming a future build would be dual slot tri-SLI/CF on PCI-E 3.0 and a sound card on PCI-E, and overclocking would not be the priority, which motherboard would be the perfect one?

The Rive won't be it because using the PCI-e slot will block the 2nd x16 PCI-e 3.0 slot, forcing me to use the last x8 slot instead. That's money flushed down the toilette. Even the MSI GD45, can do the same for $200 less, which as far as I know, seems to have the best layout for the price.
