Man i love the MSI coolers on their GPU's, just look nice. As far as the Venomous, had one and it was nice, but it is big. What type of ram, i.e. does it have tall heat sinks? I think that will be the only real concern, but I water cool, so, hopefully someone here has one.

Anyone use a 3 slot video card with this? If so is there room to use the bottom slot for a sound card? From the few pics i have seen it seems not and it's the only thing holding me back from getting this mobo.

It should work. Unless you have a dual slot sound card?

You should have no issue using the first PCIe x16 slot for a three slot GPU and then the bottom PCIe x4 slot (black) for a sound card which is in the 4th slot position.

IF Gary Key doesn't come through for us ... we will hunt down SortOfGrim and rip his SupremeFX X-Fi2 sticker off and claim it for our own !

Well Charlie117, there's another $10 bucks ... get that 1.5 TB Spinpoint it's on Sale,
and that Corsair 650 Watt PSU is a pretty sweet deal too, and should be enough for SLI ?

Keep in mind that is not Ivy, but the x79 platform. Based on what I have read so far, not something I will be interested in upgrading too.
