Here we have the brand new LGA1366 socket with its 1366 contact points. We counted, they're all there. As you can see the whole socket features a sturdy bolt-thru design.
Seriously?

Wow MAC well done. Makes me tempted really. $300 processor beating out an $1700 processor.

X58 boards also look solid.. Great review Sir.. *salute*

EDIT: Oops, whatever SKY says is the truth, so I must have counted them all.


Thanks for the compliments.

We were a little constrained time & benchmark wise, so if you guys have anything you would like us to run, feel free to post it here and we'll see what we can do.

The link to this post at the end of the review is broken, or I am

Apart from one broken link well done. Looking forward to the overclocking review.

Can I say that I'm not really impressed yet?

I know these suckers are brand new and supposed to be all that.. but I think they are still going to have a ways to go before really proving themselves.

Good review tho.
