Pretty interesting configuration, I didn't know that sandy bridge doesn't have an FSB. It seems that they learned from AMD as well and finally integrated the memory controller into the CPU.
This motherboard has a beautiful bios btw, boots up fast and is totally UEFI compliant.
Intel has had an IMC since the first i7 on LGA1366. Still don't understand the "ooh" and "ahh" over the GUI on a UEFI system... GUI interfaces were available back on old 386 and 486 based systems.
Anyhow, once you get it all together, post pics.
