damn nice looking board....bu still only 10 sata ports?! If you are going to up-size the pci-e slots....for the love of his noodly noodleness up-size the number of sata ports too! i hate having to add in expansion cards because of lack of default ports.

Actually this Board would make for an interesting test.

Board + Lowest Power CPU + 7 EVGA GT240 SC edition cards would = 30K ppd at a cost of maybe 420-440w.

I think that would actually be the real kick ass part.

But the price of all the hardware wouldn't be worth it compared to a i7 build.

I believe they're single slot.

Ok I checked it out, some 'other' sites were saying they were single slots but I couldnt find any official stuff. If you look at it though it looks very thin, and in the pictures (the third and last link) when you are looking at it facing the 2xDVI/HDMI port it looks like a single slot.

4 PCI-E slots are more than enough. What I'd really like to see is 12 or more SATA ports. And don't put the 7th and onward port on some crippled JMicron controller either!
