Maximus 3 Extreme
 
I was looking around on the internet in specifics the Asus website (Canadian Asus site is really messed) and i stumbled upon the new Maximus III Extreme, and i must say it is one of the most Beautiful motherboards that i have seen, also one of the main things that popped out at me is that dual cards don't run at x16 and x8 anymore but instead they run at x16 and x16. It also has the bluetooth connectivity and having both digital and analog VRM's. More info can be found here

This board is a plain beauty to look at, probably even after an, hour of looking i'll still probably find something new and fascinating that i didn't know was there.
