It is nice finally not see a useless heatpipe attacting it all together, I agree with that.

I think 399 is a reasonable pricetag for this board, although I do like the Gigabyte X58 extreme and its only a few dollars more.

You see that you get Assasins Creed, far Cry 2 and World in conflict when you buy an i7 at ncix?

No, I didn't!
That is pretty damn cool; is that with the mobo or the chip? If it's mobo I'll be happy because I didn't pay for my chip so no way for me to get free games then! lol

But I have to buy my mobo so that would be awesome!
