Keep in mind that the T-V also 'reflects' a large portion of the heat generated by the graphics cards, so there is a lot less heat up of the motherboard's PCB and whatever controllers might be under/near the graphics cards.

I don't care how the Tac Vest board performs.


It looks awesome therefore I must have one!

Yep, that's my target for my next build. Damn the real-world benefits, I need to upgrade from my current triple-channel setup!

Kind of nice in a way - last time, since they came out later, the p55 users were actually getting some better features on their mobos than the X58 users. Maybe it'll be the other way around this time.

i can't wait to see the uefi bios, how it looks like/how it performs and of course how fast is it to boot.

the wait for SB is intolerable :D

on the ddr3 topic, i hope we'll get some nice kit available other than what's selling right now because the ddr3 market right now is boring as hell, only pwerchip IC available for high frequency. Elpidia we want high frequency AND tight timings, where are you :D

is also Triple SLI capable, which is courtesy of an NVIDIA NF200 PCI-E controller. Yes, that venerable NVIDIA chip has found its way onto another platform, but it is the only way to get more than 2-way SLI support.
tell that to EVGA classified 760

Post PCI still!

Nice to see Sabertooth getting away from the PCI network controller (X58 version).

Seriously though, when will they finally stop slapping those PCI slots on the motherboards? - very nice pieces of silicon ruined by old junk.

Apparently, ASUS is also releasing some H67-based variants, with integrated video, including a mini-ITX version, P8H67-I.
