Is there a certain reason why they put memory slots on each side of the CPU??

SNB-E will be nice, but it's on the same process tech as Gulftown. I'm just excited to see 8+ cores on 22nm + tri gate

Until then, I can use my lowly i7 860 (45nm, baby!).

With a cooler like my Thermalright Silver Arrow you can forget about having memory with heatsinks. Atleast Corsair are brining out Vengence LP memory.

Highly clocked memory modules are overrated anyway, same goes for some of those ridiculously looking and oversized memory coolers (active and passive).
I know one thing for sure, 8gb strips will be out by then! Because SNB right now supports 32gb but nothing is out. With SNB-E being a major change, 8gb strips will be a must with only 4 ram slots on the SNB-E boards being that it will be the next enthusiast thing. As for Boards, ASUS has more up it's sleeve like ROG boards,etc. We didn't a EVGA board as they love PCI-e slots on theirs. The gigabyte board for pci-e slots has the same layout as my 990fx ud5 board.

32GB of RAM... my goodness.

That is insane! With so much RAM you almost don't need a boot drive anymore. Just have a few files on C: that create a RAM drive for the OS, extract all the data needed from the C: drive to the RAM drive and BOOM! Entire OS operating out of RAM with plenty of room to spare.

Due to bandwidth I highly doubt we're anywhere near being able to do that yet. Maybe when SSDs are the norm... not any sooner though.

Honestly, I hope to upgrade this winter to x79. My current rig I'll either sell to offset the upgrade costs, or upgrade it as well. Would like to get a nicer mobo, 24GB of RAM, and hopefully a 970 for cheap. Would make for a monsterous backup rig.

Splitting the DRAM slots like that is interesting...
Makes sence, should decrease latency closer to cpu.

I like the look of that gigabyte

Too bad every socket is covered. This board is going to be back compatible with 1366 socket CPUs.

I am wondering what happened to triple and quad memory channel?
