Default ASUS P5K3 Premium Black Pearl Edition (Intel P35)

Has anybody got any info on this board? It seems like a pretty nice board with built-in memory that is overclockable up to DDR3 1600MHz !!!!

I would like to know what it's going to cost, but I can't seem to find it anywhere....

Bjorn3d.com -ASUS P5K3 Premium Black Pearl Special Edition, Satisfying Your Daily Tech Cravings Since 1996

there is multiple review of that board...

Some important info :
The motherboard comes with 2 GB of memory and there is no way to upgrade this to more memory.

-------------

Directly from the asus web site:
ASUSTeK Computer Inc.


Both board seem to have the exact same stuff.. not too sure whats the diff with that black pearl stuff

From the review site :

For the cost no clue but it will cost half a leg and some part of your arm..and for sure only 2xddr3 slot .. make me say NEXT!
