Default Got my SR-2 *pics*

I bought this thing on June 1, EVGA shipped it out on June 2nd, and it was delivered today, June 4th... not bad considering they are in California and had to get through customs.

If you want any specific pics, let me know and I'll get them for you. Otherwise, sit tight... my case just got delivered and my worklog is coming.

Cost and shipping details for those looking to buy...
The board retails for $600USD, and the international shipping option to Canada is $30USD (Only one option: FedEx). I had to pay an additional $96CAD in brokerage/duty when it got here too. All this to say that if you want this board, it will cost you around $750-$760 by the time it gets to your door.





This thing is HUGE!!!


A comparison with my EVGA X58 LE (ATX):


Another comparison with my EVGA Micro X58 (mATX):

Those pictures give me a slight tingle in my nether regions.

That pic with the ATX board on top really puts this into perspective. The box it came in looked like a box used to transport cases...not a mobo!

What case you putting that thing in?

A valid, necessary question when it comes to a board that size for sure.

Also, what chips are you thinking of dropping into that beast?

Case: I'm in the middle of assembling a Mountain Mods Extended Ascension w/ pedestal. I hope to finish it this afternoon and will post pics in a worklog.

CPU: Undecided still... leaning towards the x5650 as long as the new bios fixes some of the existing OC'ing issues. Otherwise, I have every piece of hardware and watercooling gear I need except for the CPUs, GPU and their blocks. You'll see them later ;)
