After the first couple of boards I was starting to wonder if we'd finally seen the end to PCI support.... Must be a sign of things to come though, add-on card manufacturers are going to have to step up to the plate....

Great to see the inclusion of a molex for 4X folding, but what exactly is the last slot on that maximus? Is that a 4X PCIe???? Looks longer than a 1X, and it looks like the back end isn't closed so maybe a full length PCIe card will fit?

Maximus 4 Extreme... Defently be picking one of these puppys up when these finally release. that quad phase memory and VRM voltage 16+2 controlled/regulation is gunna make these sandybridge cpu's super clockers.

The Tac Vest looks nice, but why not allow a water block mount to take away heat from the nb/vrms?

I didn't think was actually any silicon in the traditional NB position? Since it's all on-die now? So you'd pretty much have to mount the waterblock on top of the VRM.

@SKYMTL: With all respect to the NDA, is that 10C cooling improvement from the plastic shield verified? Or market-speak? While I can appreciate that it could funnel air to places hard for case-airflow to reach, it doesn't seem like a very efficient implementation.

On the P8P67 Deluxe section it says "The Deluxe has three PCI-E x16 slots, supporting 2-way CrossFireX and 2-way SLI", wondering what the third slot is for if the board doesn't support 3-way SLI/CF?

I'm guessing there are only 16 lanes running off the processor. Hence the need for the PLX chip. Correct me if I'm wrong?

Edit: I'm a moron

The sabertooth x58 has three PCIe x16 slots, but the 3rd slot is only x4... I'm probably going to phyx mine eventually

Also, no love for 6 dimms?

Read on another article that the chipset only supports 16 lanes.. probably 16 on the CPU. I think some other boards will have the NF200 chipset to give it more lanes.

It's a shame because this board has the perfect layout for me, whereas the other with the NF200 does not. If only GPUs didn't need to be dual slot

Only dual-channel on P67, so 4 slots will probably be the norm. We only got 6 slots with X58 because it supported triple channel.
