Doesn't really matter when you put waterblocks on there anyway.

Funny how fast that picture spread around the net.

If the Crosshair is priced at $350 as speculated, I forsee the Sabertooth selling more. It has more SATA connections and still has firewire hookups. The only reason I can see going for the Crosshair board is if you really wanted the Thunderbolt card, which as of right now, has very little real world use. Not worth the extra $50 in my opinion.

Now I am undecided on which board I want if Bulldozer delivers.
I hear you on this one...I have two of those beastly three slot cards, and I don't want them pressing against the front panel/USB/audio connectors at the bottom, or obscuring the onboard power/reset/clear CMOS buttons.

That's why I'll probably go with the Sabertooth or the UD7 from Gigabyte, both of which 1/4 layout I need.

They all look identical and the article says any slot is capable of running at x16. To me, this gives you more options for where to put your cards over the sabertooth unless I am missing something obvious here.

You can run GPUs in slots 2 and 6 with a sound card in the pci (slot 5)
or put two three slots cards into spots 2 and 6
or put a pci-e x1 card in slot 3 and run GPUs in slots 4 and 7...
etc.

tl;dr I don't think you can tell if the board has any prefered 2x16 configuration just by examining the picture as all the pci-e slots look similar.
It has almost the exact same layout, slot-wise, as the CIVF. It looks like the only difference is that the CVF has one PCI-E 1x slot in place of the first PCI slot on the CIVF. Although we can't be sure till ASUS releases the official specs, I'd be willing to bet money that I'm correct.

Quick question. If I have two graphic cards in the PCI-E x16 slots and then install another PCI-E x1 or x4 card (let's say a RAID card) in another PCI-E x16 slot, will that make my video card setup x16 x8 instead of x16 x16?

hmm i have a x-fi already, and it's better than what's on the ROG board. but the ROG has great ethernet & probably OCs like a beast.

But will it OC more than the GA-990FX-UD7 (which will undoubtedly be cheaper, even with a Intel EXPI9301CT)

The board on the right is ugly and looks very boring, the Crosshair IV looks 10x better. Hopefully they rethink their design and make the Crosshair V Extreme look more appealing. Maybe a Black Edition board?

Some more closeups of the Crosshair V

Agreed.

The Sabertooth looks like it will steal the crosshairs thunder this time round.
