Yeah works on any system as long as you have the extra memory, chipset makes no difference. I recommend setting at least 8GB of mem for cache for ideal perf but less would work as well.

Here are some USB 3.0 numbers if anyone is interested. UASP is very fast.

ASUS - The Best USB 3.0 Experience - USB 3.0 Boost

Sorry I meant the internal USB 3.0 header on the 'Internal IO Specifications" chart:

My bad, pretend above USB 2.0 it says:

2 x USB 3.0 connectors and supports an additional 4 USB 3.0 ports

Ill add it later on.

Haha NP Eldonko.

That UASP feature is pretty exciting! Thanks for posting that. Makes this board even more interesting. Hopefully the Formula will have that too....

Very cool

Was waiting to see what blocks were going to be like. I was hoping it would be a unified block but with 8 DIMMs I figured it would be impossible. Won't be getting my RIVE till around Christmas so that leaves time to see what Koolance and others can bring to the table
