OMG ... heat heat and more heat ahead. Seams like those SB-E don't run cool

yes, for some reason the emphasize on cooling A LOT

Reminds me a recent topic about the usefulness of watercooling nowaday ... answer : SB-E ! Thank you Intel, I can justify a WC system now :D

It does appear that there will not be much room for overclocking on air.

If you don't want heat there's always LGA 1155. Runs very cool yet still gives great performance for the majority. SB-E is aimed firmly at enthusiasts who want to water cool :)

Didn't say it was a bad thing ... it's easier to justify the WC stuff to my dear half :) : "Darling, I really need those nice piece of copper to cool the PC :o"

Careful, she might suddenly "need" some new shoes or accessories that make an i7 3960X look affordable. ;)

New shoes implies new bag, which implies new hair cut, which implies selling the waterblocks :)

Could the extra heatsink on the DX79SI board be for relocated power circuitry?

For the record you shouldn't/won't see our boards anywhere public. That's not saying we won't be available for launch like always, but we are keeping them secret until a later date :)

As long as the extra heat brings the performance we all are hoping for/expecting from intel then i'm all for getting a bigger rad :D

spoilsport...

I remember a while back you guys wrote and article about intel thinking about creating its own self sealed water cooling units from bits it could commonly find around its lab/plant to keep costs down.

Are those what we are now seeing in the pictures or they are just rebranded ones?

Ignore my comment I clicked a picture and got my answer :p

I just don't see the benefits, X79 (rumours say), that doesn't have native usb 3.0, pci-express 3.0. Maybe 2x16 pci-expxress 2.0...

To me SB-E are just big kick ass home servers, too expensive :/

I want one with a skull logo \o/

Glad I upgraded my watercooling / case this Summer :)

We know the systems on display are Sandy Bridge E PCs, as they all sport the new quad-channel memory layout with four DDR3 memory DIMM sockets either side of the LGA2011 CPU socket.
I'm confused. I though Ivy bridge was socket 2011 and Sandy Bridge E was a 22nm socket 1155 update.
Is that not the case? Then what's the difference between Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge E then?

I'm not sure but it seems Intel might just not want PCI-3 mentioned because there isn't any devices which support it. Gigabyte and MSI are implying that some sort of CPU architecture related to the X79 chipset will feature PCI-3 support in future (Ivy Bridge-E anyone?).

Wow, not sure where you would of gotten that from. Ivybridge will be available on socket 1155 next March. Ivybridge-e isn't due till possibly 2013. Sandybridge-E is exclusive to 2011 which is featured above and available from November onwards.

GD-65 (80) with 8 DIMM slots

Anandtech states that it's the budget boards which have 4 DIMM slots while the performance boards all have 8.

Seems you've got them mixed up. IB will be 22nm on 1155 and SB-E will be on 2011.
And I (also) think the heatsink between socket and expansion slots is for power circuitry. Those Mofsets need to be cooled some way!

I /really/ dig the RAM slots being on both sides of the cpu socket.
And it's functional too, right?
Instead of 2 slots relatively far away from the socket, all four are the same distance?

Will look good with a couple of MIPS RAM blocks either side and a HK3 in the middle
