Epic folding rig?

I don;t see this board becoming popular however. A little too niche

I want it because it's called SR-2 >.>

I like it... Because I want to stick my multi-meter in the voltage check points... :O

Sincerely, I could never buy one of these for the lack of money, and for the lack of use... I still use my Q6600@stock with the 5870, because it covers all my needs. :/

This is a mobo for technology showcasing, bragging, and overclock like hell...

Anyway its a beautiful board, I compare it to a Ferrari in the Mobos Arena :D

I'm just sad, that no benchies appeared... :D

This looks like Skulltrail - but done right.

Of course, everyone would love to have one but, damn, the cost of the system will spiral out of control (Xeon processors etc.).

This has to go into the "Crazy But Cool!" section of the CustomPC Mag!

It's good to hear the detail from an overclocker and not just the company PR guy! (Take note AMD)

i have tried this board

it is insane, but massively pointless and the bios is VERY clunky

Check out Trubyd44 on Youtube, the guy had to get the electrics in his house altered for this board because it used that much power... crazy

+1 to the Skulltrail comments. This time they just might get it right.

Anyone think there'll be an i7 985X?

lol this and your guys article on how many cores does it take for gaming sorta kills this as a gaming board lol as it wouldnt ever get utilized but still is pretty. I know its not a gaming bore per-say but its sorta market in that respect, eh you get what i mean lol.

So the idea is to use two Xeon CPUs (that's $3,358 on newegg: http://starturl.com/ggehn), plus the CPU at a mere $599 (a real steal at that price)... What are they thinking?
