Not liking the layout of those bottom 4 SATA connectors.

Whoa... 3x PCIe x16... :eek: :eek: :eek:

Strange position for the SATA connectors, they'd interrupt airflow slightly being there.

so when running X-fire would you use slot 1 and 2 or 1 and 3 or does it not matter?

I believe it is slot 1 and 3.

What exactlet is x-fire? Is it like SLI or crossfire?

Always substitute "X" with "cross"

Looks like there's plenty of room for any type of cooling someone may want. I wonder what it will ship with on the NB.

The board looks cool. SATA will be a problem as far as I can see. Still confused about xfire--or whatever you guys are talking about.

Liking the 3 PCI and lack of PCI-x1. Hope they do something simular with the Intel 590s (or 680s now I guess)

I cant help wonder about the last slot, it is really impossible to put a dual slot X1950 XTX card in last slot and probably very difficult to fit a single slot X1900 GT in last slot because here are very little space. I cant fitted my Creative X-Fi card in the last slot because it is really very tight and little space, only my modem card fit in perfect, it seem last slot are suit for modem cards.

I think DFI RD600 motherboard design layout are the worst I ever seen, Asus P5N32-SLI Premium seem has best layout, good enough to fit 3 Nvidia dual slot cards in perfect.
