Only 3 dimm's per CPU? Only 1 PCI-E 16x slot? Stock cooling? Why skimp on the motherboard and cooling!

*hides*

We need more multi-cpu rigs on HWC!

Cost. Motherboard was under $400. I'm really waiting for Skulltrail2 to come out. Besides, 12GB of RAM is enough for me to get all of the data I need to work on into it (it's actually only around 7GB at a time).

I'll take a free 295. (:
I'm trying to get the money together to get one now. I need to sell my old parts and then I should be able to do it, though I'll probably need a new PSU.
